Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig, echter niet al te bitter, precies goed. Verder fris, makkelijk drinkbaar. Een perfect bier.

500 ml on tap at Berliner German Bar & Restaurant in Langram Place, Mong Kok.

Clear dull golden colour; Two finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with notable slight carbonation; Quite pungent aroma of lager malt, with light floral, molasses, bread, very thin lemon and faint grass; Mid to light sweet taste of moderate lager malt, with floral, sugar, soggy bread, moderate lemon, fair bitter hops and light grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is fairly strong maltyness in a watered down body, still stronger than most macro Pales. Light floral, no grain taste. Medium sweetness, bread taste get soaked. Notable lemon to round. So so… Hoppiness is light lemon and thin grass in nose, and stronger in taste; Bitterness is fairly moderate for an abrupt, light astringent sweet finish; Wet after taste. Fairly easy and light bitter to mouth.

Comments: Despite being watered down, its fullness is palatable, and it should be a decent one in its undiluted glory. Still, for this tap it’s pretty much a run of the mill premium lager which is good for washing down my bratwurst supper. Hamburg, tick!

Review: Can of Holsten Pilsener Premium: 4.8% ABV This typical Northern German beer is brewed according to the strict purity laws of the Reinheitsgebot of 1516 using only the finest quality, pure, all natural ingredients – hops, barley malt and spring water. Standard issue for German brews. The aroma is grainy with a nice hoppy smell , giving a typical pilsner smell, all lovely and sweet. On pour a large frothy head appeared, which didn’t hang around. The colour is a clear golden yellow colour. There is some fair lacing. Looks decent enough. Enjoyed the taste, a nice balanced crispy mouthful of flavours (barley, grain, yeasty) whizzing around, all tasty. The taste is mostly grassy hops with a hint of sweet grain. Lager taste There was a hoppy bitter aftertaste which was a little strong in the end Overall it is a very smooth lager, not strong but clean, crisp and very drinkable, definitely a good session beer. I felt it had a lovely feel to it which was soft on the mouth. I liked it, best I had in a long time, nice and refreshing, and one I will return to again in the future.
