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.

Douberd (2056) - Arnhem, - NOV 18, 2012
Poured from a 330 ml bottle.  It pours a golden yellow colour, and a one finger head that quickly dissolves. Minimal bubbles. Aroma is of malts and hops, not so strong though. Taste is bitter, and leaves back an even more bitter once swallowed. Also, a bit metallic at the tip of the tongue. Medium thickness on the body with an average carbonation.  Overall, a quite nice beer!

@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Systembolaget (13:-). Sweet malty and breadish with honey notes, hay/straw, a nice bitterness, light body with a watery texture. The finish is dry and bitter.

biirusaikou (526) - - JUL 18, 2014
Sweet malt, grassy hop. Rich sweet malt, pine hops, touch of mint, clean finish. Fairly simple but a solid classic pils.

peponi (266) - POLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Aroma: herbs and sulfur, some malty notes. Appearance: clear golden color, nice white head. Taste: medium bitterness (herbs), some malty backbone, aggressive taste with some iron. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, herbal finish. Overall: Classical German Pils, nice quality, but there are much better beers in this kind.

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.

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.
