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.

yespr (31794) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Smooth and hoppy aroma, mild fruity. Flavour is mild sweet at first but is soon taken over by a potent bitterhops flavour with a mild fruity accent. Ends smooth yet with a solid bitterness bite. Surprisingly good given the other strange Jevers around.

A yellow beer with a fine dense head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of honey, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of straw and a very bitter end. Quite nice for a pilsener.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Dusseldorf. Clear gold beer. small white head. Quite a lot of bitterish hops in this Pils. Okay.

Blond color; nice lace. Some hop aroma, quite nice. The taste has a grain character, not enough malt. Long and strong bitterness but not as much aromatic as the aroma suggested.
