Primator is een bijzonder bier, met een aangenaam volmondige moutsmaak. Wij brouwen Primator met de beste moutsoorten en Saazerhop. Hierdoor ontstaat een stevige dorstlesser met een verrassend zachte bitterheid. Dit lichtgele bier heeft een mooie, dichte schuimkraag en een wat hoger alcoholpercentage van 6%. De smaak is fris en bloemig met een aangenaam bittere afdronk.

TrefwoordPunk (964) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with a medium and fading white head and a complex smell of hop, malt and spices. Taste is hoppy and spicey too. Really interesting for a pilsener

Grovlam (4207) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Bottle. Average beige and light creamy like head that mostly lasted. Nice thick film was left on the glass. Cloudy amber color. Aroma of toffee / caramel, light roasted notes, some fruity feel. Underlying malty notes. Light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Flavor was again malty sweet with a hint of bitter notes. Sweet caramel like finish.

A little darker than a regular Pilsener this slightly stronger version has a strong full taste. It’s a bit low on the hops compared to the malt but offers enough flavour overall to make it interesting. There’s an aftertaste which is both metallic and a little grassy.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
The head is moderate and the color is golden. The aroma is hoppy and the flavour also has a lot of hops. I also get a few malty notes right before the finish, that has a nice bitterness.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2006
(Bottled) Deep golden / light amber color with a smallish, white head and some lace. Very mild aroma of pale malts, some alcohol and very faint hops. Sweet-malty, quite alcoholic flavor with some fruitiness. No hops to speak of (some flowery ones can be digged out), considering it’s supposed to be a pilsener. Medium-bodied, sweet-alcoholic palate with quite low carbonation. A drinkable European strong lager, but hardly a pilsener.

Had this one with a plate of ribs at the brewery. Worked fine with such a greasy and heavy food. Otherwise not too rememberable for a strong lager. Has the identifiable sweet character of a Hertog Jan product.

DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2006
Nice full-bodied pilsener. Nothing wrong with the head and color, good appearance too with a ’strong’ name. Fine taste, better than the normal pilsener.

Bottle at home. Pale pilsener, bit sweet, strong. Okay. Not my favorite of the Hertogs.
