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.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 330ml green bottle, poured into a footed Pilsner glass. Appearance is clear pale golden with a small white head that reduced quickly. Aroma of wheat bread, hay and honey. Flavours of wheat bread, honey and a hint of lemon zest. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Overall a nice crisp and dry refreshing pilsner.

The beer looks like pilsener, not very surprising. The beer has a light yellow color, is pale and crystal clear. The smell is very nice. The smell is very hoppy and herbal. There is a touch of mint. The taste also has this herbal aspect, very nice. The beer is a pilsner, and more. Nice.

Pils plutôt honnête et agréable. Amertume et arome végétal qui traine longtemps en bouche, ce qui lui confère un goût qui se détache des autres bières du même genre.

SDalkoholic (2232) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle from Bevmo: Poured a light golden liquid with a soapy foam head and appeared beautiful. Aroma is fragrant with corn, rice, grains, oats and the skunk associated with a green bottle import beer. Crisp refreshing pilsner that brings about danky green skunk bottling while also highlighting on some of the grainy malt. Aftertaste leaves behind traces of cornmeal and corn bread. Could have bought a twelve pack of Beck’s, St. Pauli’s girl or even Heineken for the same price of this sixer, but glad I got to sample this Jever pils. I plan to save a couple bottles and hook up a lemon shandy next time Cali experiences a really hot summer day.

anstei (320) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 2, 2015
On tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Jever is a typical example of a northern German pilsener: Reduced to the max, bitter and dry, and that’s it. Beautiful.

Grisza77 (104) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 2, 2015
Złote, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, redukującej się do cienkiego pierścionka przy brzegu szkła. Aromat przyjemny słodowo-ziołowy. W smaku słód z wyraźną nutą chmielową. Goryczka wyraźna ziołowa, bardzo przyjemna. Ogólnie bardzo udany pilsner, którego największym atutem jest jego bardzo fajna, ziołowa goryczka, sprawiająca że piwo jest niesamowicie orzeźwiające i pijalne.

Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is behoorlijk bitter hoppig en fris. Standaard goed bier.
