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.

Transparent golden with average white head, ok persistence and a bit of lacing. Nose is classic, clean, german pilsner with light cereal and crackery malts, fresh grass, flowery hops, slight hints of spiciness/prickliness and lemon. Ok intensity. Taste follows the aroma, medium to light sweet and medium bitter, starts in balance and finishes with a bit of clean-cut dry bitterness. Light bodied with medium to high carbonation, perhaps a bit too sparkling per style and a bit burpy, but still going down easy. Overall this is a sort neutral/standard pilsner that feels very much ok.

From tap at Cafe Bar Suedwest with HDI and RRV 27.07.17. Clear pale golden. Bright white head and lacing. Aroma of grassand hops. Slightly harsh taste, with hops and pale pilsner malt. Bitterness is lingering on.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2017 (500 ml can) Pours a clear golden beer, with fine carbonation, and a foamy white head. The aroma is typical of a German Pilsener: biscuit, caramel, earthy and floral hops, and a touch of lemon peel. Smooth medium mouthfeel, with an underlying bitterness, and a clean finish. This beer is a good example of a German Pilsener, being more bitter than a Czech pilsner, and with a subtler malt base. However, this is a relatively bland interpretation, and simply lacks interest.

bjakk (798) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JUL 24, 2017
Yellow, clear nice white foam. Mild aroma of sour grain. Sweet grain with really metalic aftertaste.

nybol (2281) - DENMARK - JUL 15, 2017
en pilsner ud over det sædvanlige. den er meget tør og humlet, ikke frugtagtig som IPA, men bare tør læskende og rigtig god.

2.5
Towey1989 (3048) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2017
Bottle at BeerDock Leek. Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of straw, slight corn, a little vegetable and grassy, herbal hops. Taste of straw, slight bready malts, a hint of metal and some grassy, herbal hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A long, dry, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Hoppier than standard pilsners but slightly metallic and corny. Shame.
