Fluffy sticky eggshell coloured head, nice trailing on the glass as it recedes, gorgeous deep amber/light reddish color, gentle carbonation, clear as a bell. Sweet malty nose, lots of breadiness and a light whiff of caramel with a subtle hop flower backing. Bittersweet with great balance of the two. Perfectly balanced with the hops, neither dominates..makes for a smooth easy drinking Lager. Finishes long and strong, this is a great example of the style and worth looking for.

Pours a dark copper color with a one finger creamy head.

Slight grassy hops and caramel malt on the nose, some slight sweetness to it.

Big caramel malts and grain notes come forward on the tongue, slight hop bitterness throughout the mouth. Some hints of earthy notes. Leaves a dry, bitter aftertaste.

Bit too much carbonation, but the body felt right; medium body.

First time I've tried a beer from Holsten. Not much going on in this beer, but it wasn't too bad.
