4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
1/2 liter swing top bottle purchased in Hannover, Germany. Pours to a beautiful, bright, deep golden color with a thick, creamy, white head, and a good carbonation. The nose is very pleasing with mild aromas of grassy and herbal hops. The palate is crisp and clean with lots of good pilsner malt flavor. Body is very round and clean. This beer finishes with more crisp pilsner malt up front, then ends with a mild, herbal grassy hop bite. A very well balanced, very drinkable beer. This is the true beauty of a good German beer. It is what makes a beer like Mönchshof so good. A beer that you can literally "breathe in" by the liter. This is a beer drinkers beer. This is what beer drinking is all about. Prost!

Within the pilsener category a very pleasant, light and refreshing but tasteful beer. Quite ideal for me.

A top class German pilsner: good malty flavour and the perfect bitter hoppy finish of a good pilsener. Monchshof is probably my favourite German brewery...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly darker yellow than an average lager, nice creamy head, malty aroma. A mouthful of fine malty flavours(more bohemian style than german) leads into drier territories. The finish is pretty dry. Nice spicy aftertaste. More bohemian style than german but clearly a pilsener.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first pilsner I really and honestly liked. Poured an amber-yellow color (ie. more orange going on than the typical pilsner) with a great big head that laced incredibly well. There was a nice caramel base to this one (esp. for a pilsner) and the grassy hops just laid low in the background (hooray!). This one might have erred on being too sweet, more like a maibock or marzen style beer. Had just enough "traditional" pilsner qualities, that I could see it being a pilsner, but this was pushing the boandaries (and was therefore good). Great fresh sample off draft at the Dachsbau House in Krefeld, Germany.

On Tap- Monschshof has a golden color, with a good head and light carbonation. The smell is of grains and is pleasant. The taste is crisp and refreshing, slightly bitter. It is smooth and clean. This is a very enjoyable beer.

Bottled. Clear golden, firm creamy head. Grassy buttery nose. Remains dry despite some buttery malt sweetness. Slender streamlined body, yet with a solid amount of malt. Long bitter finish. Refreshing,well hopped and quite elegant.

Golden and slightly dry. Well balanced and refreshing. Nothing outstanding about it-just a pleasant easy to drink pils.
