2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little bit too musty and bitter and nail-like fizzy, but also very nice soft and full toast aroma fulfills the mouth after the hard bubbles.
[0,5 l Can. Abv. 4,5 %, but it says Holsten Premium. Local grocery store, Finland]

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a little head that died off quickly leaving no lacing. The taste is a good balance between the hops and malt, though the overall effect is muted and the taste unremarkable. There was a heavy skunk smell that didnít carry over to the taste, itís ok

Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Corn and pale malts on the nose, some mild hay notes also. Slick palate with slightly malty and grassy flavor. Very simple refreshing lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a shimmering gold with a one fingers sudsy cap that lasts no longer than 20 seconds. Was watching Germany grind themselves to a tie with Ghana in the World Cup & thought a brew from the Fatherland may just do the trick. This just ainít the best choice for German brews. Itís a bland cookie cutter lager & doesnít even come Klose to other brews Iím about to dig into.

(Can from supermarket, 4.5% version, 20140619) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had metallicness and sweetness. Palate was light bodied with mediu, carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, malts and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A thin flavoured and charcterless brew.

0.5L can, 4.5% ABV, pale, tiny white head, rather neutral aroma, watered down - pretty much just another eurolager.
