Diacetyl, corn, barley. Too sweet, nothing common with pale ale. Any hop aromas. Awful beer.

Holsten Pilsener
bottle @ Toom Getraenkemarkt / Schwaebisch Gmuend Germany --- Slightly off aroma of malt that has mildewed. Light / medium amber color, fluffy white head that slowly drops to a full head, lace cobwebs. Taste is malt that has too much sweet at the opening, then slams into harsh edgy carbonation and faint hops that linger with a mildew edge.. No sense of flowing from one thing to the next. Harsh and off-putting. I won’t buy this again.

500 ml can. Brewed by Alivaria (Carlsberg Group) in Minsk, Belarus. ABV: 4.5 %. Gravity: 11.5 %. This beer has a faint malty aroma with some kind of weirdness. I couldn’t differentiate it. Sorry. Taste is sweetish malty with some sort of addings. Tastes like plastic. There’s no even a hint of a pils bitterness. Very industrial. Yuck!

I really didn’t like this beer. Very little real flavour and nothing that compensates that. Some bitterness, but without much hop aroma, some malts but unremarkable. Many better options available.

500ml can. Golden pour, Malt liquorish smell. Falvor is very mild actually, for its strength pretty crushable but its not a tasty brew.

Drank at a gig where the requirement was wet and cold. Tick. Apart from that, not much. Keeps its head, body a bit creamy. Sweet malt, and a bit of apple and lemon. Then, when the bitterness should kick in to remind you that these people supposedly make Pilsner, it doesn’t.

Holsten Brauwelt Pale Ale
Der Blick auf die nett designte 0,33l Dose lässt die Erwartungshaltungen steigen. Tolle Hopfen!!! Der Preis (89 Cent) erweckt allerdings auch Misstrauen und das leider nicht zu Unrecht. Der Geruch muffig, fast unangenehm. Das gespülte Aussehen, der pappige und überhaupt nicht ausdefinierte Geschmack lassen die Köpfe hängen. Hätte gerne mal vom ersten Sud probiert, aber das ist leider dürftig für ein "Pseudo" Craft Bier. Aus Husum, vom Edeka.

kräftig bernsteinfarben und eher dunkel für ein märzen. mittelschaumig. der geruch ist malzig und leicht pappig. das habe ich frischer in erinnerung. der antrunk ist leicht bitter und erinnert an holsten. magnum ja. polaris und mandarina bavaria eher weniger, obwohl eine leichte frische vernehmbar ist, die wohl vom polaris stammt. die mitte wird noch etwas herber, zugleich kommen malzig-getreidige aromen hinzu. der abgang ist abnehmend bitter mit etwas malz. die dose ist an sich vorbildlich gestaltet. ibu, ebc, hopfen- und malzsorten. fazit: klappt wohl doch nicht, kleines im großen zu wiederholen. von der versuchsanlage war es deutlich besser. 11, 9,8,8,10,8 - 8,55

Holsten Premium Bier
500 ml can from Real Canadian Liquorstore, served in a goblet. Pours a bright golden hue with fine carbonation and a tall, milky head, leaving rings of fine lacing. Aroma is strongly grassy and earthy/herbal with apple juice and bready malt; flavor is apple-juicy sweetness, light random fruitiness, and faint malts with a mild lingering bitterness. Thin, finishes dryly. It’s a generally confused kind of lager, but not a terribly offensive one, either.

Drank from 2 l Q-pack in the park. Some cereal in aroma. Metallic taste, fake aroma, some bitterness and dryness. Tasteless, nasty, cheap gas station feeling. Horrible! 0.5 l can from a local Diona store, Zagreb. 4.2% alc. Not that bad. Clear pale golden, medium white head. Hay aroma, even some fruitiness. Malty, sweet, light body, medium carbonation. Hay and corn in the finish.

Clear, golden pour with minimal head. Taste is somewhat sweet and a bit grassy. Thin body, watery texture, strong carbonation. Taste is mostly bitter with some sweet notes. Aroma is pretty bland and unimaginative, typical lager with quite strong and unpleasant metallic mouthfeel. Overall, very poor.

caramel, cereal, grass, dough, alcohol, golden, clear, minimal head, white foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, oily feel, soft carbonation. Darker gold pour with light white foam that falls quickly. Malty sweet with a light green grass hop presence. Alcohol is apparent right away. Sweeter flavour, and as I like malty beer, I don’t mind this. Carbonation is average, and mouthfeel seems on the oily side. There is a bit of heat that is noticeable, but not overwhelming. Finish is a bit boozy with a mild bitter sweetness. Not bad for a lower priced Bock.

Holsten Brauwelt Pale Ale
Another 0,33 l can from the craft line of products from Holsten found at the Edeka Supermarket at the Hamburg Main Railway Station. Light copper color, foamy long-lasting head. Makedly malty taste upfront, with caramel and honey aromas that dominate the flavor, but gradually things start moving in hops direction, with lemony and herbal aromas taking over. The finish and aftertaste are bitter as well, even sour to some degree. Easy drinkable and overall quite decent, but definitely too flat and kinda watery.

Malziger Geruch nach Karamel, etwas Kräutern und Gras. Blumiger Geschmack mit prickeliger Frische und kaum bitterem Nachgeschmack, der allerdings für Trockenheit im Gaumen sorgt. Wusste gar nicht, dass ein so "normales" Bier so viel Aroma hat. Runde Würze trotz guter Wässrigkeit. (0,33 Flasche) EN keywords: caramel, hay, herbs, clear, white foam, lightly bitter, light body, medium body, thin feel, soft carbonation, abrupt finish

0,33 l can from an Edeka store in Hamburg. I’ve heard of this supposed craft beer line of products from Holsten, but never had the chance to try them until now. Deep amber color, medium, long-lasting head. Strong aromas of caramel, honey and resin. The finish and aftertaste, on the other hand, are pronouncedly bitter and hoppy. Well-balanced, nice and easy to drink, but utterly boring.

Holsten Non-Alcoholic (Classic 0.0%)
BB 04.08.16. Poured a crystal clear pale golden colour with a two-finger bright white frothy head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation very high and coarse. Aroma strongly of sweet malt and wet cardboard; no obvious hops. Tastes matly and grainy with no real bitterness and lacks the metallic after-taste of other low alcohol beers (eg Hahn Super Dry 3.5 and Asahi Soukai); has a hint of being a lager. Light body and watery. Crisp and smooth and with a malty finish when cold but cardboard if warm.

Pours a dark yellow similar to the colour of apple juice. The alcohol taste of this strong beer comes through a little more than needed. Flavour of slightly sweet notes with faint bitterness, and not much else.

Can 0,5L. Pours golden with white top. Nothing special in aroma, some malts, grain, dust. Taste is also quite similar with other wide produced lagers - very small amount of hops, some malts, grain, sweetness and sourness. Also something metallic jumps up. A bit too much carbonisation. Regular lager.

Holsten Maibock
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.

Holsten Non-Alcoholic (Classic 0.0%)
Tasting Notes: With a white frothy head and a clear golden body, this German-made lager strikes a balance between sweet and bitter with notes of bread crust and herbs. Food Pairing: The bread crust-like malt flavour will match the sweet nuttiness of falafels (just go easy on the hot sauce) and the bubbly, hoppy finish will cut through its hummus and garlic sauce. Also welcome alongside most salads and white fish. The Verdict: A refreshing, crisp lager. Especially recommended for Heineken and Grolsch lovers.

Holsten Alkoholfrei
Bouteille de 330ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Puissant arôme de malt (céréales) qui émane de ce liquide doré et très clair. Mousse blanche quasi inexistante malgré les bu-bulles qui montent du liquide. Le goût suis le nez de très près; céréales très présentes et mucho gaz carbonique qui picotte sur les gencives et au palais. Elle est très aqueuse et passe vite en bouche, laissant seulement un arrière goût herbeux.

CAN 50 CL. Clear golden, white head. Simple pils malt aroma, light minerals. Taste is just as simple malty, some carbonation, super-light hops. Thankfully, not off-flavours. Simple, but decent.

CAN 50 CL by Carlsrom. Clear yellow, white head. Both the aroma and the flavour have a gentle maltiness with notes of honey and vague hoppy notes - flowers, lemony. No industrial flaws. But everything is just too... inoffensive. The body, which is quite soft for a pils, seems to watery, probably because of a very low bitterness in the finish. Bland, but decent.

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

This is old data - the beer is no longer for sale in Germany. I remember being excited about this new "premium beer" but that only meant less aroma, less flavor, more carbonation.
