Hertog Jan Y kenmerkt zich door een rijk aroma van mouten. Ze geven dit bier een warme amber kleur en een verrassende biscuitsmaak. De iets zoetige afdronk en kleine bitterheid op de achtergrond maken dit speciaalbier een prachtige doordrinker.

Amber beer with a slightly metallic and sweet taste. Quite boring, I unserstand why the X got the most votes.

Vaiz (4192) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin white head. Aroma is sugary malts, some faint wheat biscuit. Flavor is slightly bitter, malty sweet and decently balanced. Overall quite flavorless and boring.

PotjeBier (2625) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2012
30 cl bottle @ home. Clear amber color. Almost white head, a bit lacing. Aroma’s: malty sweet, caramel, sweet fruit, herbs. Flavor is medium sweet, sugary, fruity. Very faint bitterness in the finish. First macro brewed beer I’ve had in a long time and it’ll probably be a long time before I’ll have one again.

Bottle. Thanks to Countbeer for this one! Clear, light amber/dark golden/copper liquid with medium, thick tan head. Aroma of cereal malt, caramel, grassy/fruity hops, metal and yeast. Not too pleasant. Taste is light to medium sweet, light to medium bitter and biscuity, caramelly malty. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Not a favourite of mine. Feels very industrial.
As it warms up, it becomes really sweet and cloying. Bleh. -1 in taste.

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
33 cl bottle @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen courtesy of Tderoeck. Ambre léger, col blanc. Arôme de malt pale voire pils avec en retrait une pointe de caramel, reste simple avec un houblon dans le style allemand laissant un fini amer de pils. Assez moyen pour une ambrée et ennuyeuse à boire, le caractère malt se retrouve un peu noyé dans un houblon amer.

JorisPPattyn (9254) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
Small white head, some lace over pale amber beer. Sweet, perfumed, rosewater, sweet- and some coloured malts. Sweet taste, again perfumed malts, but very, very little depth. Aftertaste is pure sugarwater. Light body. Talk about an uninteresting beer...

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle@Home. Malty, light herbal aroma. Amber, off-white irregular head, fair lace. Sweetish, malty, hint of sweet citrus fruits like tangerine, more sweet finish, light herbal. Drinkable, but that’s about it.
