Hertog Jan is a brand for beer lovers with an appreciation of natural, tasteful beer. This is a fruity aromatic bottom-fermented pils characterised by a golden color, full body and pleasantly bitter aftertaste. It should be served at 4 to 6C (39 to 43F).

From the can... Meh Aroma of malts and grass nose is metallic astringent. Some sweets and metalic and dominant yeast notes in the finish. Not that Bad...

Somewhat sweet pils with a bit of hop character. Clean tasting and very drinkable if far from exciting.

Helder geel bier met schuim. Een erg goede pilsener, zacht van smaak en toch pittig. Behoort tot de betere in Nederland.

The back label teaches us, that this beer is a Pilsener. Sorry guys, but I don’t agree. This is a very good and pleasent Lager. Sure, it’s brewed with Saaz hops, but it’s too descent to be called a true Pilsener… On the other hand, this beer has much more character than other Dutch lagers. The full maltyness in combination with this descent hop taste make this beer easy to drink without giving the beer lover the idea that it’s just colored water. Accessable without dividing, I would say. Pleasant and rich taste. This beer is not afraid to show a bit more character than most other Lagers (I wouldn’t speak of a pure Pilsener…).

On tap from a PerfectDraft machine. Clear golden colour with a nice white head. Malts, cereals and light caramel in the aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is light with some bitterness towards the finish. Overall, a nice refreshing beer.
