Brewed by Friesisches Brauhaus zu Jever Germany
Style: ABV German Pilsener
From the very small town of Jever in the North of Germany, close to the Netherlands and facing the fierce winds of the North Sea, comes a very popular Pils that has been on the go for over a 150 years.
It says a lot when the main tourist attraction in the town is the brewery, but heh that’s my kind of town! Jever Pils has been brewed by the “Friesisches Brauhaus zu Jever” (the Jever Frisian Brewery) since 1848, and have used the refreshing pure soft water from the same well for over 100 years. Add the usual German purity laws and the end product is a Pils that is loaded with more hops than a regular pilsner.
Founded by Diedrich König, the”Friesisches Brauhaus zu Jever”, the brewery was sold to Theodor Fetköter, who developed the previous family owned enterprise into a large scale brewing operation. This north German Pils is popular, and hoppy, and is as good a Pils as you can find on the market.
Review: Can of Jever Pilsener: 4.9% ABV
The Classic Northern German Pilsener with the famous bitter taste.
The appearance was one of a clear golden yellow, with a pretty decent sized foamy head that stuck around, with good lacing. This Pilsener looks lovely, a very clean looking brew with a good body. Good carbonation and looked tasty
The aroma had a smell of malt and herbal hops with a hint of citrus. A strong lager smell
The taste, wow, that’s a taste and a half, initial shock, full of tastes from start to finish. Sweet grainy lager malts and hops, with a slightly metallic tang to it. Very hoppy bitter taste!
Dry grass finish with strong bitterness. Overall, a good solid dry pilsner that’s tasty, VERY TASTY!
