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.

scotchzombie (397) - 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

Podobno ulubionym momentem wesel człowieka, który stoi za Jeverem, jest jak krzyczą "Gorzko, gorzko!".

In my opinion, it is a good pils. Personnaly, I love the fact that a beer is bitter. It is a good one to start a night with friends or when the weather is hot.

PietS (43) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2015
Smells like stale beer of a dancefloor, in a good way though. Bitter, dry, but fresh pilsener. Looks tasty as well. Overall a good pilsener, especially if you like the more bitter beers, but not very exiting.

500 ml can. Clear paler golden yellow, frothy white lasting foam. Muted aroma of lager malt and herbal hop. Taste has more bitter herbal floral spicy hop, slightly sweet grainy lager malt, some citrus. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Crisp clean hoppier classic German Pilsener.
