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.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a lovely dark gold with a thin white head that dissipates rather quickly. Is is clear with medium sized bubbles from its high rate of carbonation. It’s aroma is of a nice melanoidin malt, with notes of a floral noble hop. No noted diacetyl or fruity esters..the malt has a lovely toasty character and has a somewhat bready yeast palate. Other sensations of melanoidins, caramellization and a light nuttiness are present. Hops are present in the taste but not overwhelming or out of balance. Has palate sensations of a high carbonation rate, and a medium-full body. No slickness on the tongue, it finishes almost dry, with a light tettnanger hop note. Overall a delightful beer with Tasty malty notes of caramel and bread and melanoidin, which balance with the noble hops for a very pleasant session beer indeed.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[[Style tick]] Pour is golden without much head but the ring that stays leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is of alcohol, grains and fruits. People say "grapes" so I will echoe that. Taste is sweet, sweeter than your usually pale lager at least. Flavors of toasted grains and cereals. Some metallic notes. Alcohol is kind of well hidden but you can still feel it. Carbonation level is medium, texture really oily. I remember liking this one a lot when I started exploring beers but it seems like I have outgrown it now.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow body with white head, not much lacing. Kind of a tart grape aroma, bubblegum. Taste is faint but nicely sweet, abv well masked. Nothing too interesting, but an alright beer.
