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.

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 (7428) - 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 (3362) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2014 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. RERATE November 2014 - growler from Cask Cafe. Notes are the same, but this had a much bigger hop blast. Notched things up just a touch in the rating.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Had this on tap at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson. Has a clear golden color with little head and some carbonation. Smell is of light hops. Taste is lightly malted and finished with a slightly sour bitterness. Overall not the best pilsner and could be even better, but for the sour taste.

RCWCPACFP (102) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Perfect balance of bitter hops I would expect in a premium pilsner. Malt flavor is complemented well and the after taste rules. Not my favorite style but just plain respectable.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Bottle at Freischwimmer in Hamburg, Germany. White head, fair lacing, fast rising carbonation, transparent with a yellow hue. Malty, hoppy and skunky aroma. Malty and hoppy taste with a lingering aftertaste. Tingly mouthfeel.
