Countbeer (6208) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle: Oh yeah, I totally forgot about this beer, until I saw it here. Remember it tasted well, better than what the market usually sell. Nothing that superior, still nice but don’t need more. A bit watery and just a hint of hops, this is not close to being tops. Now it’s not available anymore, that’s what you get for a beer so mediocre…

Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2004
An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is hoppy and the flavor sweet malty. Quite a boring beer from Hertog Jan - the best thing was the fine wrapping.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAR 22, 2004
I can only say, don't judge a beer by the color of its skin!! Nice wrapping but a quite boring beer. Pours a clear golden body with a white head. Aroma is yeasty and malty with some woody dryness. Flavor is watery and thin, dry and somewhat citrusy.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2004
This is a very boring beer in a very nice packaging. The 75cL bottle comes in a stylish black and golden bag. The beer is very thin and boring.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2003
Golden colour. White, medium-sized, rocky head that leaves a nice lace. Perhaps it's the appearence of the bottle+folder but I believe this is quality... Nice malt and hop presence, long finish. Slight fruitiness (from the top-fermentation?).

skortila (5304) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2003
Fresh hoppy and floral aroma. Pilsener looks, better head. Taste is floral and hoppy, some malts. Some bitterness. Fresh palate.

bierkoning (12405) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2003
Just a hint of hops and caramel in the aroma. Caramelly flavor with a slight hoppiness and some malty sweetness. Hint of citrus. Subtle flavor, nothing really stands out. But the beer has enough to be worthwile tasting.

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2003
Clear golden color, short but lasting head. Hoppy, flowery aroma. Quite sweet taste. Easy to drink, refreshing palate.

jerohen (2172) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2003
Clear golden colour, average head, diminishing. Fresh aroma, bit hoppy. Flavour of the HJ pilsener and some additional belgian ale. Refreshing and very easy to drink, but not very special.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2003
Light peach aroma. Golden color, white head, good lace. Light, refreshing, hoppy, light sweet, fruity. Like a combination of Hertog Jan pils and Hertog Jan Meibock. Light bitter finish.
