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.

cmacklin (1170) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2017
500ml can. pours a clear pale yellow with a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces. Aroma of bready malt, grain and grass. Sweet flavour of bready malt and lemon with a crisp, bitter, grassy hop finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not normally a fan of pilseners but this was ok.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2017 500 ml bottle in flute. Pours bright golden with medium white head. Floral and hay smell. Hoppy aroma, but a bit boring. Quite bitter taste, also slightly metallic. Aftertaste is also quite bitter and intense. Carbonation soft, light body. Bitter finish. Jever is definitely different from the mainstream Pilseners. Not bad!

Bebum (986) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Crystal clear, straw color, tall, snow white head. Skunky nose dominates (clear bottle). Light body, moderate flavor, clean, refreshing palate with high carbonation and low heat, long and austere aftertaste. Very dry, moderate bitterness despite its reputation. Hoppy, herbal but evident malt in background. Surprisingly drinkable, particularly with food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeardedAvenger (787) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle from Wine Rack, Burpham. Sweet and sour lager aroma, but not t to much so. Pale gold. Small bubbles. Fluffy white head. There’s some sweetness to begin with before a high bitterness rears its head in to the finish. Light bodied. Soft if oily mouthfeel. After the bitterness the finish is surprisingly abrupt. Certainly an original pilsner but I can’t wok out if like it. Wasn’t impressed on a previous occasion but more pleasant alongside carbonara.

cervmagpt (834) - PORTUGAL - FEB 14, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 5D). Bottle 50 cl - Batch L0811F 21416 (BBF 08.17). AROMA: low hop aroma with a initial grassy note that vanishes. medium-low grainy malt aroma with a slight honey-like quality. faint oxidation. APPEARANCE: light gold color and clear. medium-low white head with medium retention. TASTE: medium-low malty flavor with a slight crackery honey-like note. low hop note with a grassy note. medium-high hop bitterness with a dry and bitter finish. PALATE: medium-light body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a regular german pils a bit on the bitter (and dry side).

Aromas of wheat and spices. Pours golden with a white head. Taste of wheat and a bitterness with a slightly metallic finish. Just okay.

Grumpelmies (318) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Dark gold. Nice head. Aroma is very hoppy, earthy, skunky and grassy. Taste is hoppy, earthy, grassy and bready with a hint of lemons and spicyness. Long lasting dry and bitter finish. Good carbonation. Crisp, clean and refreshing. This is indeed an unique German Pils and I’m always happy to have one.

alexmate (183) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2017
Lovely clear golden colour with a fluffy white head. Medium carbonation. Not much going on with the aroma or taste. Some hops, slight wheaty woody taste typical of German beers, I didn’t really detect any herbs, some lemon balm and grass. Went down very easy, but was unchallenging. Price Paid: £1.50 on clearance (out of date).

Martin243 (1155) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Cold 500 ml bottle served in a Monchshof tulip. Aroma of grass and muted cat pee. Sparkling gold with a white head that disappears to a skim. I have been wanting to try this for some time after reading a detective novel set in Hamburg where the protagonist drank it regularly. Grassy and herbal, pronounced bitterness, light bodied. Lends itself to both sipping and quaffing. I’d be quite happy if it was my local brew.
