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.

Had this on tap at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson. Has a clear golden color with little head and some carbonation. Smell is of light hops. Taste is lightly malted and finished with a slightly sour bitterness. Overall not the best pilsner and could be even better, but for the sour taste.

PhillyCraft (6898) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2017
Tap at Wildeman, pours a clear gold with white head. Notes of dry grain, floral and semi spicy hops, water, crisp malt and other brewing infnredients. A bit too light and drying/peppery in the mouth but I could still crush pils all day

Taki se nawet spoko lager, nienasycony zbyt mocno, goryczka średnia, całkiem przyjemny i orzeźwiający.

What can I say - there is no point in describing this beer, as there are already hundreds of descriptions available. The low overall score was a bit surprising to me as Jever is a really decent pilsener, probably one of the best ones out here. This bitter aroma and taste "the Frisian bitter" is exactly what I want from a light and refreshing beer. It is the best drink after a sauna, high-intensity training session, after a day of hard physical work... A strong imperial stout would not go in these situations at all :) A good beer doesnt have to be always extraordinary but it has to be tasty, with a nice aroma and nice feeling. And Jever pilsener has all those qualities.

Tessic (1132) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2017
This pils poured a clear light yellow with a quickly dissipating, bright white head. Minimal lacing. Scents include corn, perm solutions and hay. First swig was smooth with minimal carbonation. Flavours of hops and corn most prominent. Finish is bitter with the corn and hay lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

simontomlinson (228) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Pure white creamy head stayed well on a very active golden golden body. Yeast & lightly malted aroma. Medium to thin bodied. Sharp & clean. Not much to this. Yeast, floral & quite spicy with a long bitter finish.

Bottle. Clear Pale Yellow in colour. Large frothy white head. Herbal hops. Citrus fruity. Grainy malts. Bittersweet rather herbal hoppy malty pilsener. Bitter dry hoppy finish. OK. Very drinkable. (2017-02)

A lot of hop for a pilsner. And a lot of bubbles. And that's just what i like! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
