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.

Great, really bitter Pils. Ive been to Jever, and it was like heaven on earth. Great beer. Where can I get it in California?

The only bad thing I have to say about this beer is that it comes in a green bottle, and you get the skunk smell. Pours with a nice white head, light yellow body, clean taste with a nice sharp hop bite. My friend, Dirk, always used to say Jever made the best German pils, and its sort of hard to disagree. Wish I could get this on tap, though.

Bottle. Clear yellow coloured with a medium sized white head. Malty aroma of bread, hatyand hops with fruity notes. Flavour of malts, hay, bread and hops with notes of fruits and caramel. Dry hoppy finish.

Draught. Great classic pilsner with a bitter taste. Herbs can be found. Nothing outstanding though.

Great crisp pilsener. In order to enjoy this beer you must like some hop flavor, and it packs a bit of a bite for the way it looks. Great summer beer!

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 (Bottle) Ive heard a lot of bad things about this beer, but I was positively surprised when I finally tried it. This is not the most bitter of German Pilseners, but it was a good beer. I actually found it more malty than hoppy, and not that dry, which puzzles me because it conflicts with what I was expecting. The malt was rich and fairly complex. The hops were weak and not particularly bitter, but not unpleasant. There was no metallic taste, which distinguishes this beer from most of the German imports. I would have appreciated far more hoppiness, but overall, this was a pretty good beer. It still pales in comparison to some of the Czech imports, however. I tried this beer a second time in Berlin, and it tasted better to me. In particular, it was a little more bitter, which I really liked. Do they export the exact same version to the US, or is it different? Was my experience just a matter of a change in context?

Simply no great shakes; maybe it just doesnt travel well, but after a small shot of a Victory Prima and a Pilsner Urquel, this just doesnt measure up. Pale straw color. Color accurately announces a beer that is thin in the mouth and lacking in malt. Yeah, its hopped, but this is just not a great pils.

Bottle. Pours a pale yellow colour with a white head. Crisp, but thin, on the nose. The flavour is bitter hops, bitter hops and bitter hops. The finish is bitter hops. Not bad, maybe a bit one-sided, but not bad.
