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.

A decent pilsner but nothing special. Maybe its because Im somewhat indifferent to German pilsners and usually prefer wheat beers but I wasnt really impressed. The taste was crisp but a little too bitter. I cant find this beer anywhere in SoCal but maybe if I find myself back in Niedersachsen sometime Ill have another one.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours pale clear yellow, white head. Aroma is wheat, grass, hops skunkiness. Flavor is hoppy, wheaty, grassy, and crisp. This is a good pilsener.

BierFilz (9) - GERMANY - DEC 28, 2007 does not count
Hops prevail, malt hardly detectable. Like most German Pilsners, this one has been leaned out over time (50 years that I have known it) to the point where it is not a sipping but a thirst-quenching, but still buzz-inducing, high-quality hops beverage.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2007
Cask @ Beer Circus, Croydon. Pours a pale yellow beer. Nose of honey and yeast. Quite bitter with a consistent taste. Certainly better than a Bud or a Stella.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2007
Pale straw colour. Thin white head. Aroma of pale malt, light straw aroma. There is a bit of floral/earthy bitterness. A little bit salty and minerally. Herbal bitterness and very crisp. A whiff of sulfur and a crisp bitterness on the back.

kappldav123 (6040) - GERMANY - DEC 12, 2007
Die Flasche wie bei allen Jever-Bieren sehr schlicht. "Friesig-herb" - das trifft voll zu. Herb ist es, aber nicht unangenehm, das kann man schon trinken.

Capa (3084) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Clear golden with a mid size white head. Curse these green bottles! Big skunky aroma. Corn, light sweet malts, and some earth. Slightly thin and well carbonated body. Mildly bitter, some hop and malt flavors, with a touch of sweetness. Finish has a little bitter bite. Wish I could have had a less skunky bottle.

patty26 (95) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Pours a lightist yellow with a thin white head. Pretty thin aroma of hop and malt. Relatively bitter pils aroma. Has a bit of a bite and then follows with a smooth finish. Good but not great.

Tmoney99 (14112) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle from Jungle Jims. Poured a straw color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Heavy hoppy grainy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium hoppy bitter flavor with a medium bitter dry finish. This beer met my expectations.
