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.

ryanscourt (1364) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Clear yellow, slightly spicy aroma. Nice carbonation and nice bitter/spice hop character. Small amount of skunkiness that brings the beer down. Nice and crisp but not as good as the domestic interpretations ive had.

Mediocre Pilsener. Weak aroma with metallic taste. High herbal bitterness. Drinkable but a little too well carbonated.

WarMan04 (135) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - SEP 22, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 Malty aroma, maybe grassy. Light and nothing special at all. Golden colour, clarified, nice white head. Looks like a classical pilsener. Taste is so dry, some gentle touches of malt. Great, strong bitterness. So grassy. Very refreshing and bitter. Light bodied and highly carbonated. Great beer, fantastic example of german pilsner.

DraftDodger (1120) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2016
Copenhagen 17/9 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. I can understand that this is one of the many fine things that Dr. Oetker has sweetened our lives with - beside the "Ristorante Pizza Hawaii". Drawing of very small castlelike brewhouse on the label - which is by all means unexiciting and austere. Pours clear yellow with white head. Moderate lacing. Settles as 1,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma reminds me of any mass-produced pilsner. Subdued sweet malts and very moderate presence of bitterness. Maybe a little saltiness. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by distinct bitterness. Actually quite crisp as announced on the label. Well balanced mass-produced pilsner which I would prefer compared to many of it’s Danish counterparts.

The_Osprey (6630) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2016
500ml green bottle at home in Richmond. As ’Jever Pilsener Friesisch Herb’, 4.9%, BB Feb 2017. Brewed in Germany by Jever GmbH. I was recently in Berlin and, without exception, every man, woman and child was drinking this beer. OK, maybe a slight exaggeration, but a lot of people were drinking this. It’s also one of Protz’s top 10 beers to try before you die. So my interest was piqued. Pours pale golden orange, clear, sparkling, diminishing foamy white head. Aroma is musty pale wood, sawdust and custard creams. Body is light with spritzy carbonation but not foamy. Taste is very light watery malt, musty metallic hops, dried flowers. Improves as the carbonation subsides and it’s a well brewed, clean lager. But I don’t see what the fuss is about.

Jever has a thick, frothy, white head, a clear, golden appearance, some very fine suspended sediment, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of faint malt sweetness, and the flavor is of sharp, strong, grassy hop bitterness, with a background cracker malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Jever finishes crisp and refreshing.

Blueshawk (406) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- blass-goldgelbe Farbe mit leichter schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - bereits im Geruch kommt die starke Hopfenbitternis zum Vorschein, verbunden mit einer leichten grasigen Beigabe - passende Carbonisierung - geschmacklich dominiert die Hopfenbitternis alles andere - auch Abgang kommt dann außer Hopfen nichts Neues mehr hinzu Fazit: Das mit Abstand beste Industrie-Pils

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2016 Przyjemna ziołowa goryczka, trochę słodowości, lekki skunks. W miarę w porządku. [Archiwum]

tightslice (1001) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is spicy grass, mild grassy bouillon, mild hops. Taste is light and sweet grass with a vegetal / bitter hop finish. Not bad.
