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.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear yellow pour with a silky white head and great lacing. Aroma is very floral and hoppy with some cookie dough and grass. Flavor has a slight sweetness at the beginning with a very dry, bitter, and hoppy middle and a very bitter and lingering aftertaste. Not quite what I expected in the finish. Very nice, until it warmed up. Drink it cold.

Although the label says "Friesisch herb" it is verry bitter. I didn’t expect this.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 23, 2006
Clear golden colour, medium persistance head. The nose is more malty than expected, but the herbal hop aroma is well present. Very bitter, grassy, and dry, with average carbonation and bitter long aftertaste. Surprising beer, thirst quenching, satisfacting and enjoyable. It worths a tasting.

Stew41 (1903) - Phuket, THAILAND - NOV 21, 2006
Clear gold on pouring with a thin creamy head. Ok for a macro. Not much happening on the nose, perhaps faint traits of earthy malts. Palate surprises. No malts jump out, at least to my taste, but there’s quite a pronounced herbal hop, almost fern like flavour dominating the palate. Not sure I ‘get this’, or indeed approve.

I purchased this beer on the advince of a German man with a Texas accent. Didn’t have a fridge, so he told me that Jever still tastes good warm. I am giving definate props to the beer for pulling off such an amazing feat. Certainly it would have tasted smoother and more refreshing if it was cold, but the beer was still smooth and flavourful without the refridgeration.

Finn (6116) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle 0,5l at The St Albans Beer Festival 28 Sep 06. Yellow coloured. A huge lasting head. Hoppy flavour. Sourish fruity flavour. Bitterness coming after a while - and lasting. Sourish bitter ending. A good pilsener.

Rune (10838) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2006
500ml bottle sampled with CatweazleTroms and Finn at The St Albans Beer Festival. Pale yellow body with a small, white head. Citrus (lemon) aroma. Hoppy and sweet fruity in taste. Slightly bitter ending. Rather decent version for a pilsener (28.09.2006).

greenmanalishi (519) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2006
Can’t understand much of the fuss about this one. Hoppy, bready flavour with a dry-bitter finish. Like the average IPA, this is just probably not my taste.

Stefano (1947) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2006
Very light straw color with a noble hop aroma. Flavor is soft spicey/grassy hops with a mellow clean maltiness. The palate is very clean and soft.
