Very typical pilsener. Net at all better than run of the mill macros. Still very drinkable. Boring

Holsten Brauwelt Märzen
Ein undankbar unspektakulärer Stil und solides Industriebierflair, sorgen nicht für das groß angekündigte Geschmackserlebnis. Maximal die Aromen & Flavours des Magnum Hopfens lassen sich erahnen. Würzig, karamelig und mit leichten Citrusdüften geht’s lps. Optisch toll amberclear. Der Trunk angesweetet und dezent erdig hoppy. Der Nachhall ist nicht so lang und für den Hardliner ehr wässrig. Durchschnittssud zum zwischendurch vernaschen. 89 Cent, die 0,33l Dose. Edeka Husum.

Aus der Büchse getrunken (Supermarktkauf). Sieht besser aus, als es schmeckt. Für mich eher ein wässriges Red Ale.

Holsten Brauwelt Rotklinker Brown Ale
An amber small quickly disappearing undense head. Aroma first fruity hoppy followed by some malt. Not complex but still pleasant and promising. Tastes is primarily malty sweet which get covered by a good hoppy bitterness. But, there is one problem. The finish is surprisingly underwhelming short. It is like i drank flavored mineral water. Not even, i have had mineral waters with a longer finish. What I mean is yeah some bitterness is reminiscent but its not like what you expect. This is really disturbing. Because the hops give you the impression that there is a big ending waiting for you. But then it’s just not. Carbonation is average, texture is thin and a little bit creamy. I’m not sure how this beer won a Gold Medal at the International Craft Beer Award in 2016. Worth to mention is, that its not at all like a classical Brown ale. More like an american malty IPA without a bang.

Ein goldenes PaleAle allerdings deutlich zu bitter und dadurch sehr sehr unausgewogen. Die Bittere ist sehr stumpf und macht alles kaputt.

Can looks good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts malty, more and more hoppy, fruity-dry, also with some metallically notes. Finish boring dry and metallically. Okay.

This bock poured a medium yellow colour with a bright white head. A little lacing. Scents include cooked veggies, bread, a little corn and cream. First swig was smooth and watery with flavours of bread, light malts and little bit of hops. Finish is malty with bread lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aus der Dose. Helle Bernsteinfarbe, kaum Schaum. Es riecht und schmeckt beim besten Willen nicht wie ein Brown Ale! Es riecht etwas nach Karamel und Malz. Im Geschmack nur Wasser und Karamelmalz. Was soll das????

Sampled from 0.5 l can from local ’LIDL’, best before December 2017. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, almost stable, white head. Very faint, slightly sweetish and a bit grassy aroma of straw and grains. Slightly sweetish, a bit grassy and minimally grainy taste of straw, iron and grains, followed by a short, slightly bitter, minimally grassy and a bit metallic finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Drinkable, not bad, super bland though.

330ml bottle. Clear golden with one finger white head. Light aroma with light sweet maltiness, cereal and light citrus. Taste is light and somewhat watery with a very light dry malt sweetness and light citrus bitterness in the finish. Light to medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and slight bitter aftertaste. Refreshing but nothing special.

Holsten Brauwelt Rotklinker Brown Ale
33cl DOSE bb07/2017. A tad better than their awful pale ale, still dry and facelessly clean like a macro lager with that cooked vegetable bitterness for a hop cocktail. Flourishes of herbal hops with a berry edge, woodiness done as cardboard nuttiness. Drinks like a Ratsherrn Rotbier or watered down melanoidin-spiked Bock.

Holsten Brauwelt Pale Ale
33cl DOSE bb07/2017. - Nicely designed can chockful of info. Pale ale interpreted by macro lager standards - holds a weak candle to Beck’s Taste the World ales. - Metallics of cooked celery broth served from a canteen, a few drops of caramel. Has the taste-neutral sweaty graininess of Astra and wallpaper glue of a poor Heller Bock suffused with generic hop extract bitterness. Not sure if I’d be able to pick this out as a non-lager from a lineup...But it steers clear of those farty Beck sulphurs...

Can 0.5l, bought in Euro Spin Ptuj. ABV of 4.5%, not sure why this is listed as retired? In any case, clear golden pour with two finger soapy white head. Goes away almost instantly. Smell is malty and grainy, slightly sweet. Thin body with regular carbonation. Watery texture. Aroma and taste.... nothing to write home about. Usual macro supermarket lager. Bittersweet combination of malts, grains, corn and metal. Watery and boring. Cheap beer, but drinkable.

If you’re not asking for too much from a pilsner this is the one for you. A nice clear golden appearance, not much of an aroma and a simple and straight forward taste. There’s not much to rave about but not much to complain about either. I find it a good companion for watching football when you don’t want to concentrate too much on what you’re drinking.

Can. Clear dark golden color, fast fading white head. Floral, fruity aroma, the cascade is very present. Dry, high bitter taste. Thin mouthfeel and a low carbonation lead to a weak body. Aftertaste has some herbal and light fruity notes, besides some low level malt flavours.

Holsten Brauwelt Rotklinker Brown Ale
Merkwürdig metallischer und fast ein bisschen unangenehmer Smell. Zwar schimmern auch immer wieder die, hauptsächlich fruchtigen, Aromen der verwendeten Hopfen durch, aber über diesen thront auch etwas Pappiges. Dazu die ENDfiltritierte Ootik, na ja!? Im Mund definitiv gelungener. Schlank, angemalzt und fruchtig hopfenbitter. Nicht übel, hier werden alle Vorzüge des Americanostyle Brown Ales solide herausgearbeitet. 0,33l Dose vom SKY Markt in Kiel. Ca.1€.

Many thanks for this hard to find beer to kevnic2008. Butelka zielona juz robi zle wrazenie, prosta etykieta i prosty nieskomplikowany, dolnofermentacyjny Pilsner. Mala piana malo trwala, sporo gazu uderzajacego w nozdrza. Barwa zlocisto-zolta. Smak raczej lepszego lagera niz dobrego Pilsnera.

Dose - klare, rötlich-braune Farbe. Geruch ist leicht abstoßend - irgendwo zwischen Toffee, Schweiß und Zitronensäure. Geschmacklich um Längen besser. Rotes Malz, leichte Toffeenoten, leicht spritzig zitrusartig. Abgang leicht trocken, legt sich oben an den Gaumen. Trinkbar.

Pound Pub Co, Woking. Nil aroma. Bright amber, creamy head, bubbles. Sweet with sharp bitter kick. Can’t complain about palate - fresh and creamy. For a pale lager, good enough.
