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.

Bottle. BB April 05, 1 year ago. Grainy aroma, and honey? Dark golden colour, semi-stable, rocky white head. Peppery flavour with a slight sweetness. Rather standard, but not bad export.

Nice fully pilsener of 100% fully natural ingredients. Grainy taste withe a gentle bitter aftertaste. Now it is time to test wat the conclusion is after a whole evening trinking this beer

Had expected much more of this Primator, thought it was a complexer beer than the ordinary Hertog Jan Pilsener, but this beer is a bit dissappointing

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2005
strong lager, more like an european strong lager than a pilsner. pours golden, almost no head. aromas of hop and a bit skunky. taste: sweetish, malty and...paint remover! finishes fruity(banana) and malty. not so good, just drinkable.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) An "Extra Pilsener"? - whatever that is.... Well, in this case it seems to be a stronger pilsener with more and darker malts used. The beer pours fully golden with a handsome, creamy head. Pronounced bitterness, but it’s the nice, malty body that’s the main feature here. 170804

Golden honey color, not much head. Metallic and sweetish aroma. Sweetish malty. Medium-bodied. Only faint hops in the finish though label says "extra pilsener". This is more like European strong lager.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2005
Bottled. Wow, I´m suprised at the high ratings this thing gets. To me this is nothing more than a glorified pale lager with a high sweetness, a bad herbal aroma and almost no bitterness in the finish. Bad, and has nothing to do with a pilsner.

A dark pilsener and a bit more spicy than a usual pilsener.

Disparate transparant head, fed by big bubbles, in dark golden beer. Grainy nose, chaff, hay, vaguely grassy and honey. Again a tad honeyish - definitely mainly sweet malts in the taste, hints of mint and retronasal alcohol. Light but not watery, mineral water with a body if you can imagine. Just a tiniest hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent pilsener, easily drinkable with some enjoyable notes.

Ungstrup (33990) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2004
An orange beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is very hoppy with notes of grass. The flavor is dominated by hops, but also with notes of malt and fruits especially apples before a dry hoppy end sets in. The body is thin - especially considering the 6% ABV.
