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.

BREWMUSKCLES (2611) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2007
ENJOYED ON TAP AT 9TH AVE FOOD FESTIVAL NYC 2005. WATERY AND REFRESHING. SOFT AND BARELY CREAMY/OILY. PEPPERY FROM THE VEGETABLE NOT THE SPICE. PERHAPS RED? TASTE OF LATE SUMMER BURNT GRASS. CLEAN BITTER FINISH WHICH UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES IS QUITE SUITABLE. TINY TIGHT BUBBLES THAT ARE A HIGHLIGHT HERE. EEEHHH OK.

aracauna (3539) - Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Pours a perfectly clear, very pale yellow topped by a creamy, white, small-bubbled head. Soft malt in the flavor, not quite dry. Peppery hops. Fairly subtle beer.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 5, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2009 Bottled 33cl. It pours a nice yellow beer. Rich aromas of hay, biscuits, rather bready, grassy. Some nice barbecue smoke on the nose. I m very pleased with this pilsener at this point. The flavor is bready, malty, then it turns grassy. Rather strong and aromatic bitterness. Again some hay. A clean bitter finish follows. A very enjoyable pilsener. After several samplings: The hop profile isnt exactly impressive. But I really like this beers strong bitterness.

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2007
Can. I could try in Hambourg during my trip arround Europe. Very bitter beer, yellow golden color with a nice white creamy head, aroma is pour barley and flavor is dry bitter, like mouthfeel.. Pude experimentar em Hamburgo durante a viagem pela Europa; Cerveja bem amarga com colorao dourada e uma espuma grande e densa, aroma de pura cevada e sabor seco e amargo. O mesmo sabor fica na boca!

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Pours a slightly hazed macro yellow with a big puffy billowy creamy white head. Though the head went down quite a bit, it stuck around. Hmmm, skunk. For shame. I will try to not penalize this beer too much for it, poor green bottle. Grainy with peppery hops. Very dry with perhaps a bit of sulfur? Not really offputting, though maybe its just the skunk. A nice rich fully body for a pilsner, though its still liquidy and refreshing. Really nice. The flavor is in line with the nose. Alas, the skunk. Dry grainy malt with some light sweetness. Peppery peppery hops. Really dry and refreshing. A clean peppery finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste. I just dont see how this is a different style from Bohemian pilsners, but oh well! Id look for a 6er of this if it was from a freshly opened case and I were heading to the beach.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 14, 2007
Nose of spice & yeast, grain & cereal. Not skunked though from a green bottle...horay! Pours a light yellow gold. The ultra stiff rocky white frothy head is fully lasting and leaves light lace. Great balance. Pretty bold finish for the style. The light body is creamy and soft. This brew is really an excellent example of the style.

A Mes rate: Bottle from Quinns. Bloody awful. I just dont like pilsners full stop. Such a shame Ingrid chose this as her last beer with us, but hey each to their own... Thank Eric I had some Earthmonk to wash it down with.

A genuinely bitter German pilsener. Seemed heavily hopped for the style but not to its detriment. From a bottle it raised one of those astonishingly tall heads that Ive associated with German pilseners since a school exchange trip that my mates and I went on at the age of 15 because the drinking age in West Germany was 16 and we thought we might get served. Drank til we puked. Almost 30 years later I still remember the long delays after ordering a beer while the barmaid waited for the head to settle. This particular bottle was slightly skunked, but otherwise clean and grainy. It was faintly sour and not especially fresh-smelling. Pity - would love to try this on draught. Much better in the mouth, where its initially all soft malts and diacetyl before a very firm bitter finish. Good bitterness. Nice soft carbonation. Very dry in the swallow. Grassy, clean and rounded with some late herbal astringency. (330ml bottle from Vintage Cellars, Clovelly. BB 5/10/07)
