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.

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.

PabloZab (339) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 6, 2015
Butelka 0.33l (12.2015). Barwa slomkowa, piwo bardzo klarowne z biala, ladna czapa piany. Aromat swiezy, slodowy, z nuta chmielowa z delikatnym skunksem charakterystycznym dla pilsa. W smaku slodowe, kukurydziane z wyczuwalna, srednia, chmielowa goryczka. Posmak delikatnie slodkawy. Pijalne, rzeskie, przyjemne.

Wonderful light beers with a lighter smell and a light taste that bring the heat around the best thing ever.

pours a clear straw colour, and a nice bubbly head. Aroma notes includes apple, pear, lights malts, and fruity esters. Tasting notes include apple, floral, crackery malts, and finishes with some slight hops. Excellent Pilsner!!

Cor palha clara e brilhante com baixa carbonatação. Aromas simples de cereais. Gosto de uma pilsner de qualidade. Refrescante e retrogosto amargo.

Bottle to shaker. Pale gold with small white head. Grassy hops, classic pilsener flavor profile. Light and crisp, though fairly boring.

scotchzombie (401) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2015
Classic pils. Pours light gold and bubbly with a nice white head that fast fades to a coating. Aroma is buttery, bready malts and noble hops. Wonderful. Taste is wheat, grass, and some lemon. Quite bitter. Crisp and fresh on the palate. Classic pils taste but with amped bitterness. Distinctive.

Pours light gold from bottle with thin white head. Grassy aroma. Light malty flavor bent sharply toward hops. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall good pilsner, not my style but wife likes it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
