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.

minutemat (3854) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2016
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.

I like this beer, it’s rather expensive in my country. The Brewer’s blurb about the water from 100 years ago is pure blurb. Everybody uses crystal clear water from the Ice Age! Single Malt factories and Beer breweries. One couldn’t detect a difference if they used just tap water. (not considered USA and foul tap EU countries’ water) Clear water tastes like NOTHING! Like everybody knows. Exception is the Amstel beer (by Heineken group) brewed in Curaçao. They use water from the Caribbean sea, desalted, but there’s a tinge of salt left. One could taste the difference. Dutch Amstel is not as good and rather like Heineken.

heavy (2569) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 28, 2016
May ’15. A 0.5 l bottle from a supermarket, enjoyed at the wonderful English Garden park in Munich. Skipped it so many times, I really had to buy it. Herbal hop, some grain and hay in aroma. Flavor was moderately bitter, herbal, with biscuit and light honey malt in the background to balance it out. Medium bodied with moderate, dry paper and herbal finish. As expected, rather an average classic German pils, not bad.

kubmal (173) - POLAND - MAY 26, 2016
Clear yellow, medium head. Aroma hops, malt, some skunkiness. Taste is lightly sweet with high, long lasting bitterness, more intensive than in other pilseners. Very drinkable and surprisingly hoppy.

bonkiedeaap (594) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2016
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch or Kleve. The beer is pale yellow colored and has a stable and large white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is grassy and malty, with notes of citrus and yeast. The taste is light sweet, mild and well balanced, after the sweetness dissappears a nice hop bitterness is noticable with grassy notes. The finish is dry and bitter and refreshing.

In aroma hops, bit metalic. In taste clear pilsener. Medium to big bitterness.
