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.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2006
On draught at Birreria Paradiso: Pours to a clear golden-straw body with a medum, lasting, white head. The aroma is mild hops, grass, fruit, apples, and some bread. Taste is bitter floral & grassy hops, bread, fresh light malts. Lively carbonated, light bodied, finishes crisp with some lightly bitter hops.

HenrikSoegaard (11477) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 22, 2006
Can. Ordinary pilsener. Creamy white good mostly deminishing head. Week to no aroma. Moderate sweet flavor. Short finish. Watery palate. Nothing to go for here! Very carbonated.

JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - APR 19, 2006
On tap at the Horseshoe pub: Nice bitterness. Lacks malt balance. Thin bodied and a little watery. Crisp mouth feel and good pilsener dryness. OK but a little disappointing.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2006
A friend of mine had his brother-in-law bring this over from Germany, and it was a nice pilsner that I hadn’t previosuly heard of. The packaging looked cheap, but the beer was pretty good. Very pale yellow with tightly packed bubbles in a fairly weak head with little lacing. Smell was somehow "import smelling" without the skunky methyl-butyl-thiol smell that we usually associate with the green-bottle-beers. Taste good - an above average pilsner. I liked it - and if it were more widely available here, I would gladly take it over some of the more common German lagers like Beck’s, Krombacher, Warsteiner, Bitburger.

gnoff (8740) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2006
Sample at a beer tasting event at "Pannrummet" in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Light yellow color. Malty scent. High bitterness, malty a bit hoppy taste. A German classic by all means. The low score is only because of my recent lack of appreciating light lagers, this is well made and a classic, but just not right for me.

Not at all impressed. little aroma, malt, attempt at a sweet taste almost tasted like a rolling rock.

Bottle. Eh, okay. Bitter. Okay, but the bitterness is strong. Hoppy. Slightly smooth, but not a very smooth finish.
