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.

Grumpelmies (157) - 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 Im always happy to have one.

alexmate (107) - 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 didnt 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 Price Paid: 1.50 on clearance (out of date).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 (1063) - 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. Id be quite happy if it was my local brew.

czlowiekwiadro (759) - POLAND - DEC 23, 2016
zapach przyjemny, świeży, zielony, trawiasty i ziołowy z nutami słodowymi, całość dopełnia lekki aromat zielonej butelki. kolor jasnego złota, klarowny, piana biała, średnia i skąpa. w smaku pełne, słodowe, trawiaste, zielona butelka, trochę kurzu i piwnicy ale w pozytywny sposb. goryczka wyraźna, długa, ziołowa z lekkimi nutami pestkowymi ale znowu w dobry sposb. całość pozostawia bardzo lekko dziwne uczucie na języku. nasycenie średnie do wysokiego.

gorkogrlo (345) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 18, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2016 On tap. Pours pale color with small white head. Aroma of grains, earth, grass. Flavor profile is also grainy with some grassy and metallic notes. Light body. Watery. Dry and some kind of bitter finish. Overall: nothing spectacular.

Pours clear, almost brilliant, straw like golden color with foamy white head. Aroma: crisp malt aroma and spicy, peppery, slightly citrusy notes of hop. Flavor is similar with crisp like malt notes and peppery, spicy, gentle citrusy hop flavors. Hop bitterness is high and lingers in aftertaste. Body is light, texture soft, carbonation medium.

Brewhemia (273) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2016
Insanely pale yellow with white head. Aroma of boiled cauliflower (DMS?) and faint malty sweetnes and a little sour tablecloth. The taste is much better though. Medium malt sweetness (bread) and medium to strong citrussy hop flavor with light acidic and bitter finish.

Bawelt (687) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 17, 2016
Aucun int?r?t. Une pils parmi les pils. On retient un peu plus de corps et de rondeur que chez ses homologues industriels. De la douceur. Tr?s aqueuse. Pourquoi pas si pas beaucoup de choix mais je n?y reviendrai pas sinon.
