COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unique in taste. The secret lies in the water, which is still taken from the same well used well over 100 years ago. The water from our well is unusually pure and soft. That allows us to add a touch more hops to create the Friesian-bitter taste that distinguishes Jever Pilsner from any other beer.

Bottled at Derby Beer Festival. With my father-in-law often waxing lyrical about how good Jever is (memories of it on draught somewhere in Northern Germany some years ago) I finally got the chance to try it for myself. And, it;s good stuff. Pale gold, chef’s hat style head. Throws your tatsebuds the real curveball of sweet malts to dry hops in one fell swoop. Classic German pilsner? I shoiuld coco!

Pours a pale golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head and no lacing. Sweet, grassy, hoppy, mildly skunky aroma. Taste was overall of grains with a nice bitter finish. Some citrus noted, average mouthfeel.

Smooth, clear and crisp. Refreshing and thirst quenching, a basic pilsener, but nothing particularly exciting about it.

Decent, albeit run of the mill German Pils. Reminded me a lot of my days of drinking Bitburger by the damn case while over there in the Air Force. Grassy and hay like aroma, hints of corn and bread. dry finish. massively carbonated.

What a suprise here. This has to be one of the better pilseners I have ever had. Very crisp and clean with a semi-sweat aroma. The flavor has a hint of bitterness like a stronger beer. Dry finish that is pretty refreshing.

A pleasant aroma when you first open the bottle inviting you to drink it.First impressions do not lead to dissapointement.It has a unique dry taste with a perfume like aftertaste.A great Pils? Perhaps not but a very good one indeed.

Very decent pilsner that I probably would have been much more impressed with had I not been drinking all day. Nice and dry and well hopped.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Very light straw color with a noble hop aroma with an undertone of nuttiness. Light malt start, that for the color is quite shocking. Crisp and clean. Light malt sweetness comes mid quaff and is then escorted away by herb hops. I had one yesterday and thought this to be one of the better ones I have had. So, I bought a Bit today to compare. Unfortunately it was a dated sample. This is truly a great pils.

Blond color; nice lace. Some hop aroma, quite nice. The taste has a grain character, not enough malt. Long and strong bitterness but not as much aromatic as the aroma suggested.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Bottled. Served slightly chilled in a Jever glass. Wow, this is a good pilsner. Slight malt, slight hops, sweetness with a really bitter finish.
