2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, quite strong with great sessionability, some honey aroma. Really don’t understand the low reviews, maybe because it’s a macro :/ Some cereal aroma and some nice carbonation for the brew. No head retention is a takeaway, overtop a golden/slightly amber tinted body. Well integrated alcohol for sure. Underrated.

Poured it with no head and no lacing. Taste very sweet, like it’s made for kiddies. Boring and mass produced. Yuck!

Can from LCBO. Sweet honey aroma. Sweet honey taste. Decent, but by no means exciting or special.

Holsten makes the best shitty-good, drivin’er intaya beers that are (or were) available here. As a young boy of ten, these were my favourite beers to get plastered on half-classily. Golden, sweet and malty with a light pissiness to them. I can never say I was lead astray by a Holsten beer. I know better now, then I was but a wee lad. Many a night. Many a night.

Yeasty aroma with caramel notes. Clear copper colour. Sweet front with malty middle and slightly sour finish; flavours of caramel, biscuits, and butter. Medium in body and carbonation. A nice beer.

Yechh. Can. Yellow. Wheat. Aroma of corn and syrupy booze. Not too sure who would drink this or why.

Can. Not a huge fan. I find these Holsten bocks really show their syrupy alcohol flavour. This one has some bread, caramel, and raisin flavours to it. Don’t let them get to warm, because the aftertaste increases and it is not that good when it is cold.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml can. Clear dark golden body, small white head with poor retention. Aroma of grains, grass, metallic can, sweet corn. Taste on the sweet side: caramel malt, corn, can, some herbs, alcohol. Very boozy for the abv.
