Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein kräftig goldgelbes Pils mit hoher, mittelporiger Krone und viel emporsteigendem CO2. Der Geruch zeigt sich hopfig süßlich. Der Antrunk erfolgt angenehm frisch aromahopfig, leicht sü. Der Abgang ist angenehm herb hopfig ausklingend. Überraschend gutes Pils!

Light malt aroma. Rocky head with a nice Belgian lace, a little dark straw color. Light sweet, hints of bitterness. Lively carbonation.

Bottle, as Hertog Jan Natuurzuiver Bier. Dark gold with a fast-settling head, faint appley nose, crisp bitter edge though with little depth, a bit gassy. Like a hopped-up Export.

One of the best pilsners out there! Fresh yeasty aftertaste is what sets it appart from the other big brand pilsner which is often bland.

Flesje gedronken bij verjaardag van Bart. Goudgeel helder bier met stevig schuim. Weinig aroma. Smaak is bitter. Weinig boddy.

nybol (1364) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
Moderat humlet, typisk duft af pilsner, let smag af græs og et strejf af honning. Skummet er næsten ikke eksiterende. Øllet er almindelig gult. Det startede sødligt i munden og udvikles til en dejlig bitterhed, der forbliver en del tid. Øllet har en lys og tør krop og en livlig kulsyre mere end øl plejer at have.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 Well was not expecting much and did not receive muc. At least drinkable because of sweetness

On keg at DHC Delft Clubhouse - Clear golden colour, with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is malty with hints of hops. Flavour is fine malt, some fruits and bitterness. Got boring after about five or six...

Hertog Jan pils, the beer of choice of south east Netherlands and many others. a clear golden delight with a white foam head. If you are looking in the supermarket for some beers to enjoy with some friends, this is the one for you. I have never met a someone who was dissapointed with being served one of these.
