Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2004
An orange beer with a small white disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty and so is the flavor. A very simple beer with a thin body.

bierkoning (9822) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2004
Sweet apple, slightly dusty aroma and flavor. Absolutely no hopbitterness. Rice flavor, like cheap sake. Should be refreshing, but on a cold Dutch winter day there's only the lack of (hop)flavor that shows.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2008
<i> Tasted as “Bolle Jan Pilsener”.</i> Collapsing, just yellowish tinted head over clear metallic, pale golden beer. Shards of lace. Dry-ish, fresh malts nose, with a whiff of caramel and alcohol. Grainy, soft-sweet malts taste, fresh malts; actually quite good for a Pilsener/pale lager. Ends duller sweet. Light to medium bodied, grist slickness. Decent pilsener, better than usual from Huyghe. <i> The label remarks that the bottle remains property of the brewery Bolle Jan. Ah? And what do they say in Melle about that? As to the caption “Echt Brabants”, that is beyond ridiculous. </i>

BoBoChamp (5105) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2009
25cl, alias Bolle Jan Pilsener, exclusive brew, from De Bierloods Adegem, not complex brew, yet refreshing, balanced, clear, good head, nothing special

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Pale golden coloured. Almost no aroma. Very weak and lousy flavour of rice. Extremely watery.

caesar (4713) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2007
Can. Typical pilsener. Thought this was from the Surinam brewery, which makes the Djogo, so I actually tried to score a country here. Too bad.

deanso (4662) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2011
50cl can from local supermarket. Thick creamy white head. Clear pale golden pour. An ok lager.

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2011
50cl Can from AH,as Faja Lobi Parbo Bier, doesn’t say where it’s been brewed, but I’m not surprised it’s a Belgian lager (sorry Belgians, I just don’t like your lagers).. Clear pale golden colour, aroma of swamp, skunky hops, grain. Flavour is sweet, vegetables, grain, light sour malts, watery metallic finish with a CO2 tingle. Light bodied. Not very good.

Countbeer (4035) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2012
Can: Big vast and slow disappearing white head on top of a clear bright/light yellow colored beer. Smell grains and malts, glue ish corn, hop clay and the slightest hint of something like spiced/herbed nailpolish/paint remover.  Taste grains, low to medium bitter, dusty iron, a hint of hops and some soft dough tints. Aftertaste is a bit herby with malty grains and a low to medium bitterness. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, low to medium body and a light creamy but more watery texture. The mouthfeel is extremely soft for this beer style. I dig the regular (Surinam) Djogo/Parbo way more than this weaker copy. Not bad but for the style, there are others which are way better.
