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

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.

(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

Bottled (BB 09/2005)
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark pilsener and a bit more spicy than a usual pilsener.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Light yellow coloured. White head. Hops, fruit, malts and sweetness in the aroma. Sweet notes in the flavour. Light malty and hoppy. Has a nice balanced bitterness in the end.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A smooth pilsener. Some malts and some hops in the aroma. Mild and light flavour. Quite bland.
