2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright golden color going for amber. White 2 finger head dead in a minute. Average legs and activity.
Faint aromas and flavors of corn, caramel and herbal spices. Invading highly sugary syrupy taste.
Light body with prickly carbonation. Faint and short finish ending in sweetness and slightly dry.
Overall : A little bland but some good freshness. Overly accessible with a clean finish and almost no alcohol feel.

Iím not gonna smash this...itís better than I expected and cheap. $2 a can? Hoser beer, cheaper than a 2L of cider and isnít half bad. It has a character and whilst not the most desirable itís quite OK....a yearning for another sip is there...so uh...there.

Can - Transferring Old Data - Holsten is definitely not a good brewey. Their beers are standard, easy to drink. This is an okay Bock, not much to say about it.

Poured it with no head and no lacing. Taste very sweet, like itís 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, driviníer 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.
