3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold, bottle from an Augsburg Getränkemarkt. Nice peppery hops, light but malty dody, noce bitterness in the tail. The hops lift this from a crowd of Helles that tend to be bland.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle at the brewery. Pours a crystal clear, straw yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened pils malts with some fruits, a light grass, and maybe a touch of diacetyl. Flavor is better. A nice grassy bitterness balanced throughout with a lightly sweetened pils maltiness. A few fruity notes towards the end before this finishes clean and dry with a moderate bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light, smooth body and a crisp, moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid pils. A slight DMS note on the nose, but the flavor was really solid. Bitter, but balanced with a nice, light malt sweetness. Good one.

On tap at Wallingatan Monks Cafe as Monks Cafe Bavarian Pils. Barman said this was a collaboration brew! Light haze on this pale gold beer, little white head. Palate is softish and a little dry with fine carbonation. Nice creamy malt, super light. Good floral tone - even a whisper of elderflower. Seamlessly integrated is a whisper of citrus hops. Finishes smooth. A really nice and super drinkable Pilsner.

Body is medium, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light bread and light grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty – lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light grassy hoppyness. Could be drier with more bitterness. OK but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Smells of green apple at first with some bread and cracker malt notes. A faint hoppiness, mostly floral and earthy, and a bit of yeast and citrus peel. The flavor is a bit bitter for a pilsner. Some grain astringency, a mild malt sweetness, some cracker and bread notes, and definitely some green apple, too. Light fruit esters on the finish.

Non è malaccio dai per essere una classica pils tedesca si lascia bere bene, forse un pò troppo gas...
