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.

Pale golden color, small white head. Aroma grass, herbs. Taste light malt and herbs with harsh bitterness.

Strong hops with a very distinctive, intense bitterness. Hay-ish in the aftermath. This is my very favourite beer. You better drink it straight out of the bottle, served cold.

I don't expect much of Pilsners, because I prefer the southern German lager style, with its treacly malty richness. But this is the best Pilsner I've tasted. Pours sparkling yellow, with a thin but confident head and a delicate honey smell. Edgier hops than you get with a Helles, but very cleverly blended into a bready overtaste. This is a beautifully refined lager, so that you get none of that ugly metallic aftertaste familiar from mass-produced lagers. The only other Pilsner I've had from North Germany is the Flensburger; but for me this knocks the Flensburger--decent though it is--into a cocked hat. Carbonation is perfect, as is the somewhat bitter and bready aftertaste. A corker.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2018 On draught. La birra purtroppo è’ cambiata dalla prima volta che l’assaggiai a Berlino nel 2008 infatti non viene più prodotta a jever ma a Dresda presso la Radeberger l’amaro c’è ma è forzato quasi chimico peccato

Clear gold on tap. Another one that seems underappreciated. Not much hop bite, but sweet and lightly floral, very crisp in flavor and body. Went great w German food.

Pours a clear straw to light golden colour with small white head and high carbonation. Aromas are bready malt and some corn with big Noble hops - floral, spicy notes. Taste is crisp, clean and refreshing with a zesty hoppy bitterness and light fruity sweetness. Balance is very much towards hop bitterness and has a lingering bitter finish. Good example of a German Pilsner.

Can. Clear golden colour with stable head off. Aroma of hops, malt. Taste of malts, bread. Bitter finish

Zlotta (4237) - Hagen, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2017
Sampled from 0.33 l bottle from local 'trinkgut', best before August 2018. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, slightly grassy aroma of grains and some straw. Slightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly grassy-spicy taste of grains, some straw and traces of citrus, followed by a short, medium bitter, grassy-spicy and quite dry finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Indeed more bitter than its fellow tv-pilseners, not more aromatic though. I remember how I hated this beer a decade ago, but I think it's pretty refreshing and quaffable right now, showing me how much I got used to bitterness.

Bottle 0,5. Just after opening a little "skunk" aroma but it flew away quickly. Then left grassy, pungency smell with a bit of bread. Straw color, very clear with nice, fizzy bubbles inside. Head soft, fluffy, really likable. Apperance is for sure the best part of this beer. In taste dry, for me only with the hop bitterness. Very drinkable. Hop taste and nice, lively carbonation makes this one really refreshing.
