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.

Sorry my notes are over a month old and only consist of a name and a number at this point

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2005
Bottled. A pleasant light golden coloured lager which starts with a nice white head. The aroma is very grassy almost like a Euro lager rather than a CGP. The taste is also too lagerish with an alcohol snatch and grassy malty notes. A bit sulphuric in the taste also. Not what I expected - a real disappointment. Sorry if you’re reading this Dan.

Pale golden colour with medium size frothy white head. Hoppy grassy aroma with hints of flower. Flavor is hoppy with a long dry bitter finish.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2005 I think this is pretty good. In my opinion it should be rated a little higher. Pours a golden color with a creamy head. It is not as sparkly as other Pilsners I have had. The aroma is pretty bland with some nice malts. The taste is bitter with a nice mouthfeel. Pretty good, but not great.

Mine came in a green bottle. Pale gold pour with aroma of malt, thiols, and taste of malt, some hops, and some finishing honeyish elements. Thin palate. Completely forgettable.

A great pils, if not my favorite, I tried this about 3 years ago, and hated it, now I love it, shows how people and taste change, the hops and grassiness burst out at the first sip, my bottle was very fresh. I think it should be served in a brown bottle though. I can´t wait to have it again!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Bottle. Light yellow-gold, medium dying head, some nice lacing...nose mostly skunky, alas, but a bit of dry grassiness helps...sour-bitter body, fairly strong dry bitterness late, a bit of metal in the finish...thin-to-medium body. OK.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2005
Quite pale. Straw colour, without much head. It has the classic dry malt and grassy hop aroma. Soft malt continues into the flavour. Crisp, with some hop bite, but more mellow and less dry than I had anticipated. Has a sort of mineral mouthfeel - slate and flint - that you get with some dry white wines. Also a touch of citrus. Very close to it’s best before date, so might have been better when fresher. Overall, a solid, but unspectacular beer. I was expecting more. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk.

Kinz (3293) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 Clear golden yellow, decent head, nice lacing. Aroma grainy with some floral notes and a touch of earth. Good body, nice malt backbone with a decent hop bite, earth and faint flowers. Nice. RERATE: 3/21/10 - Notes actually identical. Still a very nice beer with a good, lingering bitterness.
