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.

Raistlin (109) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Pours murky golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is a bit grassy, slightly earthy, floral. Slight citrusy character, light bread, straw, some bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation, bitter finish. Really harsh after taste that lingers.

LupusC (4) - FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014 does not count
In the world of pils, this an an absolute top. Draught or bottle, the crispy, herbal aroma with utopian golden colour make a combitnation worth testing. This is what beer is all about, no tricks or wanna-be-revolutions.

shaynsawchuk (425) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
500 mL can. Clear straw with a lacy white cap. Soft grainy malt, fragrant hop spice and floral notes. Crisp, dry and heartily bitter. A nice clean finish. Light bodied, full carbonation. Solid pilsener.

mateuszk (171) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle. Look exactly like all German pilseners - golden, clear with white head. In aroma malt base with herbal hops (plus sometimes skunk - why green bottles?). In taste bold malt base backed by solid and quick hoppy bitterness. Light body, lively carbonation, very drinkable. Solid commercial pils.

Calisky (443) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 15, 2014
Couleur dorée, bonne mousse blanche. Nez bien malté, houblonné un peu citronné. Gout de bonne amertume bien houblonnée. Rafraichissante! Pas mal p une pils

Piękna biała piana, ładnie oblepia ścianki szkła. W zapachu wyczuwalny chmiel, ale nie jest zbyt intensywny. Barwa jasno słomkowa. W smaku tez chmie ale nie jest zbyt intensywny, spodziewałem się czegoś konkretniejszego
