This is an interesting beer.....the colour is average at best, the taste is mild, weak, almost flat....well balanced with clean aroma.....What I find interesting here is the fact that the brew is really nothing special, yet the mouthfeel is exellent and I feel as though I could consume gallons of this beer and wish for more.

OK but not extraordinary German lager... I wouldn't qualify it as a pilsener.

Light in colour, light in taste, but otherwise refreshing. Noticeably short on bouquet, but tastes better than it smells.

Holsten has a reputation for under-achieving, and this beer bears that out: a lot of marketing, a nice pure beer, but not worth taking home to meet mama.

A pretty good German brew. Not as high on the food chan as say Weihenstephaner, but not bas nevertheless. Very crisp and clean with a good aroma and a very good finish. Worth a try if you are just getting started in German biers. Prost!

Just another german pils, fresh crisp, boring and easy to drink, at least the germans have schwarbiers and wheats to be proud of.
