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.

Had this on tap at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson. Has a clear golden color with little head and some carbonation. Smell is of light hops. Taste is lightly malted and finished with a slightly sour bitterness. Overall not the best pilsner and could be even better, but for the sour taste.

(2) Not worth trying. Although I have been called Jever many times (nothing to do with the beer) I do not find any happiness in this beer what so ever.

Bottle, 50cL. @Poitiers, La Minute Blonde. A golden sparkling beer ; few bubbly ; big white foamy head ; fair retention. Herbal nose (+), hay, light cereal. Light to medium lasting dry bitter ; refreshing. Light body, thin texture, good carbonation, dry herbal bitter lasting finish. Overall, I enjoyed this one a lot : very refreshing, nice herbal aroma, 1-dimensional.

Lupulinuk (7) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2015 does not count
On draught at Schlappen, Freiburg - 5/10/15 - Clean, crisp pilsner. Refreshing and grassy but nothing special. Not a bad beer but definitely lacking the complexity of better pilsners.

GothGargoyle (1882) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2015
Can. Clear pale yellow with a pale head. Aroma is grain, grass, chamomile, hint of mineral. Light bodied, good carbonation, nice level of hops on the palate balancing a light bready character. Taste is bread, grass, chamomile, mineral/lightly herbal hops.

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2015
A pale gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A light pale malt aroma, cereal and biscuity. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts with a dry biscuity and cereal flavour, followed by a mild bitter fruitiness. The finish is short and light and a tad syrupy. Draught @ A&O hotel Hamburg Süd, Hamburg.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Clear light yellow colour, frothy white head. Aroma is hoppy, grassy, kind of sweet. Taste is almost sweet too, with medium bitterness, fresh hoppiness and some malts, dry. Nice long aftertaste. A great pilsener.
