wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, - AUG 8, 2011
Draft, 50 cl. Clear golden coloured beer with nice white head. Nice aroma of hops, grains and some fruitiness. Taste of hops, grains and bad tasting malts, a bit metallic and industrial. Light bitter finish. Disappointing taste, not in accordance with the nice aroma.

biir (454) - Berlin, - DEC 18, 2015
Flasche, Fass, Dose - Holsten ist ein eher malzbetontes Pils, starker Körper, recht würzig, im Abgang aber zu lasch, kaum bitter. Trinke ich nur mal aus nostalgischen Gründen.

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

GoufCustom (1302) - HONG KONG - AUG 14, 2015

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!
