Will this heatwave ever subside? I mean, one does enjoy the odd sunshine here and there, but a gentle, cool breeze would be quite nice right now - especially in the Heathrow area. But, as I say that, a gentle, cool breeze has now approached from the west. All that we are missing now is the summer rain to come and drench this parched land.
Anyway, enough of my chit-chatting, let’s move on to why you are here.
For today’s Midweek Drink, I have chosen a non-alcoholic German Pilsner brewed by Freisisches Brauhaus, called Jever Fun.
A brief history of Friesisches Brauhaus
In 1848, a brewery called Friesisches Brauhaus was founded by Diedrich Konig in Jever, Germany. In 1867, Konig died, leaving the brewery to his son who then sold it to Theodor Fetkoter. The brewery was sold again in 1922 to the Bavaria - St. Pauli Brewery.
After the Second World War, the brewery began to produce Jever Export which proved to be quite successful. During the 1960s, Jever Pilsener became their most popular beer with sales sky-rocketing. Today, the brewery is now owned by Radeberger Group.
Three senses and a beverage
Jever Fun comes in a 330ml green bottle and contains the following ingredients: Water, Barley Malt, Hops, Fermentation Carbon Dioxide.
It pours a clear, light golden colour; small head and medium carbonation. The best way that I can describe the aroma is that it is grassy and grainy, and for the taste, it begins sweet and grainy to finally finishing off with a soft bitterness at the back of the tongue.
