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).

A Sim rate (bottled from Quinns): Sweetish blonde aroma. Malty with a hint of grape. Apple like flavour, slightly tangy. Hardly any head but decent lacing. Tangy finish.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2006
(Bottled) Clear, golden color with a small, bubbly head. Mild, acidic-malty aroma with honey and corn hints. Honey-malty, lightly sweet and corny, smooth flavor with mild, grassy bitterness. Light to medium-bodied, a bit slicky palate with medium carbonation. A quite drinkable and sweetish-malty, basic lager - not much to do with pilseners, though.

(30 cl bottle from a friend in Holland) Thin sweet malt and canned corn scent. Clear golden color, big white head. Thin malty and a bit fruity taste. Medium mouthfeel. A sweet candy like aftertaste. A bit too sweet for me.

Bought from the brewery. Quite sweet and fruity for a lager, but not at all bad, very tasty overall. Smooth mouth feel, a little too smooth maybe. Felt like a tap beer even tho poured from bottle.

Good quality pilsener, one of the better known here in Holland. Natural brewing progress. Nice taste and flavor. Good aftertaste. I’d like to see this on tap at more cafes and bars over here instead of Amstel and Heineken.

mansquito (3578) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Found this beer all over Rotterdam. Really cheap at the hostel, but the cups were not clean and added a soapy flavour that I did not find in it at other places. Overall, a nice slightly bitter beer with a kind of pale color. Simple, but rather sweet (in both ways).

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2006
Small white head quickly dissolves. Deep yellow body. Sweet watery caramel aroma with marzipan notes, disappointingly weak and simple. Sweetish watery taste with grain notes. Dry metallic aftertaste. Well. This wasn’t very exciting. (0.33l bottle.)

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2006
33 cl can. Nothing very natural or traditional about this. Malty and sweet lager, not up to their other beers.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2006
Light hazy golden colour with a white head. Malty, grainy aroma with a light fruity and grassy note. Malty, grainy sweet flavour with a light fruity note and a weak bitter finish.
