3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours light straw colour. Smooth mouthfeel with malt and surprising hop presence. Light and enjoyable, but not overly interesting.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - pours pale gold with a big white head. Aroma is skunky with some cereal malt. Some sweet need up front and a very mild dry finish, not much to it. Mouthfeel is thin to medium.

Monteith valt over het algemeen tegen. Ze weten heus wel te brouwen maar is naar mijn idee gebrouwen voor een groot publiek. Alles is erg vlak van smaak. Niet echt craftbeer te noemen.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Plonk. Clear gold/amber, solid white head, grainy/biscuity, (I got cornflakes too, omega), mild bitterness for an imperial pils, a bit boozy but not overly so, pleasant enough but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Caro for this birthday present. Looks handsome in the glass with its bold golden hue, large fluffy slowly diminishing head and rich lacing. A little weak on aroma at Monteiths recommended 8 degrees; floral hops, caramel, biscuit, citrus, cardboard, bandaid. Moderately sweet, moderate to moderate-heavy bitter. Alcohol numbing palette [sic] creamy almost lightly chewy. Second half paired ok with a Baigan bhartha Indian curry. One of the best Monteiths I have had though nothing to rave about here. Couldn’t help but add this:
A thin board or slab on which an artist lays and mixes colors.
The range of colors used by a particular artist or in a particular picture.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nose : Floral, citrus, vanilla, cream.
Taste of rounded malt, vanilla, some noble hop coming through. Creamy.
Not bad but hops are really lacking here, deff not the definition of Pilsener. More like a very decent lager.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma sweet biscuity malt with a hint of floral hops. As noted below, they were a bit bashful with the flavours but still got enough of them in the pot to make quite a nice lager, and an easy-drinking 7% one at that. Probably the best Monteith’s I’ve had. Extra two points for being good value for money at the supermarket.
