COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2004
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.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - APR 19, 2004
A smooth pilsener. Some malts and some hops in the aroma. Mild and light flavour. Quite bland.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2004
Dark blond beer with a ery small head. Hop aroma. Light sweet caramelly taste with a more hoppy finish. Still almost no bitterness. Not a very interesting beer.

Diqqiediq (17) - Meerkerk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2003
Hertog Jan Primator is a good beer to drink, but i've had better ones. All together Hertog Jan can brew beers like the best :D

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2002
Grassy, slightly malty aroma. Sweetish, malty taste with pear and orange. Some hopbitterness. Unconvincing and a bit sticky.

A stronger version of the standard Hertog Jan. Good!

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 Bottled. Clear golden coloured, small rapidly diminishing head, thin lacing. Malty nose, some caramel, hints of apple. Malty flavour, alcohol quite apparent, which is surprising at only 6%. Bitterness in finish. I like pilseners, and especially these so-called ’extra-pilseners’, to be hoppy, thirst quenching and by no means alcoholic. This beer doesn’t meet any of these demands. In my opinion the least succesful brew of this otherwise pretty fine brewery.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2007 Bottled. Very floral and perfume aroma. Not bad actually. Dark yellow color, white firm head, good lace. Maltsweet, light bitter, pretty neutral overall. Strange how they lost the floral/perfume in the flavor. Medium body. Not bad for a pilsener.

Primator tastes much better then the ’normal’ Hertog Jan lager. The taste is much richer.
