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.

McGarnigle (654) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Green bottle just at the best before date, and in fact it smells a bit skunky. Taste seems fine though, with a little initial sweetness followed by herbal hops. Bitter, dry finish. Pale yellow, nice head. Tight carbonation.

Minden ízében igazi pils!Erre szokták mondani hogy "azért nem szeretem mert keserű"!Én viszont igencsak szeretem!

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2008 (GERMANY) Light golden color with a thin white head. The aroma is grassy with a clean smooth taste and a slight bitter finish. Not a bad pils, but not the best i’ve had.

Golden with lasting head. Straw and smoke? aroma notes. Smoke, bread, grain malt flavours. Unpleasant bitter finish. Could not finish.

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2008
Big coarseish shiny white lasting head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Light grass and straw aroma. Dry grassy straw taste with grainy malt notes. Light to medium body. Bitter grassy aftertaste. Faint residual sweetness. Verging on watery, with a sharpish mouthfeel. A good and very clean pilsener. (0.4l draft at Altstadt Bierhaus, Lübeck.)

Great, really bitter Pils. I’ve 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 it’s sort of hard to disagree. Wish I could get this on tap, though.

2.7
joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2008
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.
