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.

Suttree (6105) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2007
UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 This one has been on my wishlist for a long time, and I’m not really sure why I wanted to try it so badly - It’s not particularly highly rated, and it really isn’t even a style I care that much for. But i found it in Asheville, NC and bought a sixer. When a cracked one open - uh - oh, faint whiff of skunk, mixed with citrus and grain. No skunk in the flavor, thankfully. Clean and crisp, nice corny, grainy bodied with a bracing hop finish. I would drink a ton of this in the summer, if I could get it here.

Some good lacing. Flavor: Lightly sweet grainy maltiness, Some light spice and floral hop flavor. Bitterness came in with a good amount of bite. Crisp and clean finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Wasn’t expecting very much from this beer, but it was very nice. Nice flavors and a great clean finish.

almosi (282) - Viña del Mar, CHILE - APR 18, 2007
in Can 500 ml., I believe that this beer is within the best ones pilsener of Germany. A very good golden color. The head is something small, but it lasts, white and cremy. Aroma to grass, very deep.... (forests and humid herbs). It has an average body, the flavor is a perfect mixture of Malty/hoppy. A somewhat dry and fresh end. It lets almost feel Malt until the finish, and hoppy bitter and flavorful for the real finish.

ekstedt (6528) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear golden, medium fluffy white head. Intense malt aroma, fresh, earthy grains, and a herbal hop profile. Medium bodied, with a nice carbonation. Wonderful long and deeply bitter finish.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 9, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow/golden body. Big, fluffy lasting white head with good lacework. Sweetish grain to the nose. Seems like all the hops are left in the flavors... along with some moderately sweet malts. Dry palate. Dry finish. Quite quenching.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2007
12oz. Bottle: Heavily bitter aroma. Smells of Pils malts, bittering hops, cardboard, dried grass, and skunk. Poured a light golden color with a medium, rocky, white head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Crystal clear. Sparkling. Flavor is heavily bitter. Tastes of pils malts at first, then gets heavily bitter with a strong, bitter, hoppy flavor. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Medium-length, very bitter finish. Overall, a good Pils, but I prefer as more floral American Pils to this.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2007
Pale yellow with a thick layer of egg-white foam at the top. Crisp sherbet aroma with some faint bread dough. Grass comes through on tasting. Dry flavour with quite a wholesome bitter finish. Tasty and easily drinkable.

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Bottle. Clear pale gold body below a dense white head. Strong aroma of grass, straw, bread with a hint of pine, citrus and skunk. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel. Smooth and dry. Very nice balance of pilsener malts and a bitterness that lingers, but doesn’t detract from its crispness. I am enjoying and appreciating below 5% ABV beers more and more. This is one of them.
