Mad_Ferret (838) - SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2014
Draught sample @ Monks Café Wallingatan, 11/10-14. Clear pale golden, white head. Light grainy hayish aroma with some grass and slight citrus. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Crisp refreshing flavour with similar notes as in the aroma. Simple but quite refreshing and crisp.

Tap@monks. Pale yellow clear. Nice pale lagery light creamy malts. Soft bodied, nice malty lagery. Nothing earth shattering, but just a nice enjoyable pale malty lager.

Robins öl på Monks. Ljus med vitt skum. Luktar ljust bröd med en touch av metall... Smakar inte så mycket... Ok Ljus lager.

Bamsen78 (4606) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2014
Draught @ Monks Porter House, Stockholm. Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with sparse hoppy notes. Sweetish, estery and malty flavour, with bitter, hoppy notes. Rough, estery aftertaste. Well, not bad as such, actually quite decent for a light lager, but definitely not my favourite beer.

Beer5000 (5327) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 On tap @ Monks Cafe, Wallingatean. Practically clear, pale golden body with a white head. Quite mild grainy aroma. Plain, clean lager flavor, a bit sweet and low bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. OK drinkable lager without any faults, but pretty much straight forward and not much more than a thirst quencher.

On tap at Monks Cafe Wallingatan. 5.2%. Almost clear pale gold beer, little white head. Light palate, a little dry. Crisp. Light lagerish malt, a little crisp. Mild minerals. Traces of noble and citric hops. Finishes crisp and light. Tasty and refreshing.

AndySnow (5584) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2013
Draught @ Monk’s Sveavägen. Clear golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of malts, grain. Rather light bodied. Flavour is rather mild, malt, hops. Not really up to the usual standard of the beers at Monk’s.

gnoff (9190) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2012
Draught at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, part of the flight "halvmeter öl", on November 16, 2012.
Clear straw yellow to pale golden color, white head. Sweet, sugary, grains, malty, bitter taste. Aftertaste is dry, grainy and bitter. Medium mouthfeel that is somehow both spritzy and smooth. Butter, sweet, malty scent. Medium to medium high dry bitterness that lingers with a mix of minerals.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - SEP 22, 2012
The pour is a lightly hazed golden straw color with a white head. Nose of cracker and bread malt with some hints of apple ester, yeast, and floral hops. A little bit grainy and sweet on the palate. Mild cracker notes, some bread, and biscuit. Fairly light hoppiness with a mild bitterness along with the floral notes. Easy drinking, but not all that great.
