3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale colour, clear, medium thin head which was quick to fade. Aroma was grassy and hade notes of red cabbage, reminded me of beers brewed with Saaz hops. Tasted slightly watery, notes of honey, grass and grain. Finish was bready and sour dough like. Texture was slightly syrupy, soft carbonation, coarse edge which I didn’t understand the origins of, given the other aspects of the mouthfull. Easy drinker, but with less character than other Helles from the region. Not offensive and would take it above the Monschhof Pils.

Flaske: Pilsnergul klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Klassisk tysk lager med let malt og et meget diskret humlebid. Ok sommerøl.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
One of the worst examples of Helles Lager I’ve ever tried. Nothing remarkable about this watered-down-tasting beer... Monchshof is known for brewing good weizen and pilsner and a few decent dunkel, but they simply screwed up this time.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a medium-sized foamy white head. Slightly grainy and perfumed pale malty aroma with hints of herbal spice in the background. Mildly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Subtle grainy malty taste with traces of sour dough and very shy hoppy notes from far behind; moderately sweet and slim malty finish with a very restrained level of bitterness. Boring stuff. 30.III.15

Heldere gouden kleur en een goede kraag. Ruikt mout, kruiden. Smaakt moutig, pilsachtig.

Golden color with high white, but quickly dissappearing head. Aroma is malty, little citrus and grass. Taste is mild, but refreshing. Nothing special but ok to drink.

Simply bad. In colour, in taste, in aroma, on the nose and appearance, too. When lager is not good, this is an example. Dead beer, without top after several seconds.
