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.

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).

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 (1938) - 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.

TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Pours a clear pale yellow, and both looks and tastes completely crisp and clean. Nice Hallertau hop flavor, with a little bit of doughy malt in the background. Tasty, but forgettable.

Very nice golden yellow appearance. Reflected in the taste - very crisp and clear, quite dry and hoppy. The bitterness is evident, but not overpowering. Smooth finish makes it very easy to drink. Definitely one of the better pilseners.

berkshirejohn (5677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Bottle: clean pine-like aroma, a extremely bitter taste which lingers. Looks like any other lager, straw coloured, white head and moderate carbonation. Very refreshing and it certainly stands out from any other pilsner.

Nekronos (3936) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2006
There is some misterious thing about this beer. It is overrated from my point of view, or I just ha dit too above form the cold level. It was incredible hard to swallo, but only i you compare it with the grades. It had good foam, good colour, but there was something bad.

MrBunn (2643) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Bubbly golden pour with a small head. Aromas are heavy of fermenting apples and pilsner-like hops. Flavors are crisp and well blended, but unspectacular. The fermented apple from the aroma comes through fairly heavily, as does a hop presence that is reminsicent of Becks.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Clear pale golden with a small white head. Big spicy saaz aroma, with some toasty Munich malt too. A great big bitterness hit first in the mouthful, followed by some pleasant biscuity light malts and herby hop flavours. The finish is dry, bitter and refreshing. A great pilsener!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2006
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Golden clear colour with a nice white head. Light sweet maltness with a very noteable touch of hops. Very bitter and clean flavour, both notes of malt and hops. A very classic north German pilsener.
