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.

Mysteriously low RB rating... this is simply one of the best hoppy pilsners in the world! Dry and crisp, with a refreshing hoppiness and long aftertaste, fresh and clean with hints of mineral (due to the Friesland water used) and some grassiness. Attractive, firm white head. A perfect beer to just enjoy, slowly on it´s own, or with spicy food. A lot better on tap in Germany than from an exported bottle.

labeerinthum (507) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 18, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ricorda l’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine è media, con carbonazione bassa. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Medio è il perlage e la carbonazione persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è snello. L’amaro è moderato. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole per una birra parecchio gassata. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è dissetante. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, pane e resina.

This beer has a brown color. You can smell hops an herb. The taste also has a hint of herb.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 Barwa slomkowa. Dość wysokie wysycenie. Aromat slodowy, lekko ziołowy. W smaku gładkie zwieńczone solidną goryczką co w przypadku pilsnera jest zaletą. Jak widać koncern też potrafi zrobić solidne piwo

tillmac62 (684) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2016
BBD 11/16. Clear golden pour. Outstanding head volume, very good lacing and quite outstanding retention. Outstanding nose of light airy grassy hops with a touch of herbal thrown in. Underneath is a grainy note that is not quite cracker biscuit. Heavy light body that is very smooth with just a slight oiliness. World class carbonation / body balance. Middle effervescence is moderate and the finish is prickly...just the right balance. The flavor profile is very good but lacks a touch of sweetness for complexity, contrast and balance. Bitterness is mild. Hop flavor consists of grassy up front then shifts to herbal in the middle. Herbal flavor flows through the finish and lingers along with a residual bitterness.

330ml bottle, enjoyed many times in Germany, but this one from Erzengel. Many thanks chap. Pours clear gold, good white head. Aroma is nicely sweet. Taste is distinctly Northern German with lightly sweet malts and a medium bitterness. Seems a touch watery tho.
