ramboraffe (958) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2015
On tap at pub in Bremerhaven. Clear golden with white head. Smell is sweet grain, bread and lager yeast. Taste is a little sweet grain and not as crisp as most german pilsners. Hay and grass hoppy finish that is not bitter. Semi dry with low bitterness and medium carbonation.

Cthulhu (29) - - APR 15, 2015
Most of the German beer that is sold everywhere in Germany is nothing special and Holsten is the liquid proof of that. The guys at the marketing department are doing a tremendous job because the beer is just pretty average.oily texture. high carbonation, pale yellow color and overwhelmingly boring bitterness.

Avetixz (24) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - APR 2, 2015
Aroma of hops, some resin and spruce. Pours clear golden liquid with a frothy white head. Medium bitterness with a flavour of bitter hops and a hint of malt. Medium body with a creamy and fizzy texture and a slightly bitter finish. All in all this is a very ordinary Pilsener with a monotone smell and taste. Nothing special, but not bad either.

freretoc (1028) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 8, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 50cl à la maison, couleur blonde, mouss emoyenne et effervescence très forte, une pière avec une attaque sur le malt et le pain blanc assez raffraichissante.

Baalzevuv (68) - Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2015
Barwa jasnożółta, słomkowa, lekko zmętniona. Brakuje jej jednak pełni, zdaje się wodnista. Piana uboga, śnieżnobiała, drobnopęcherzykowa, utrzymuje się cienka koronka. Nawet nieźle oblepia szkło. Aromat cieniutki, czuć te chmiele, ale słabo. W smaku lekko chlebowe, dość wyraźna goryczka. Na języku ściągające, wysycenie średnio-wysokie. Gorycz lekko zalega.

massingasetta (361) - München, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2015
Ein appetitliches Bier das eine feine Schaumkrone und typischen Pilsgeruch aufweist. Der Einstieg ist erfrischend, perlig und rund. Körper und Abgang sind zwar ansprechend aber sehr normiert und brav. Man ist fast geneigt dieses Bier als 0815 Pils zu bezeichnen. Fazit: Braves Nord-Pils.

Mark_Eck (951) - - JAN 14, 2015
Pours a clear straw yellow color. Aroma and taste are light malts, grassy, and a mild bitter finish.

rikstar (1167) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
0,33l fles van de edeka in Binz. Goudgeel met een snel slinkende kraag. Geur en smaak zijn fris hoppig met een grassig karakter. Afdronk is netjes voor een pils. Niks wereldschokkends maar wel een redelijk pils.

BlackHaddock (4556) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Tall 500ml bottle: BBD 10/15. Drank in my Hamburg hotel room in 12/14. Light, bright and clear golden body, the head a fast departing white blanket. Hop bite to the brew, with a malty stabilizer in the flavouring. Bog standard German Pilsner really, could have been any of many.
