3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22-Apr-08 (500-ml bottle: Free sample bottle for stewarding the 2008 World Beer Cup in San Diego, CA) Grainy malt aroma pairs with spicy Noble hops, but it’s also a little cheesy, though this goes away in time. Malty, somewhat biscuity, minimally sweet, balanced by crisp, spicy, moderately bitter hops. Light-bodied, clean and crisp on the palate Pale golden in color and perfectly clear in appearance. Carbonation bubbles continue to rise long after the beer is poured, and that helps to keep the fluffy, white head at a thin, but complete layer. Ringed and doily-like patches of lace remain on the glass.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very bright straw under a foamy lacing&lasting white head. Hints of grassiness, little or none maltiness. Very dry palate, quite bitter end, short aftertaste. Better than commercial lagers but way far from better examples of the style.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On Tap, Monks Café Stockholm Clearest pale golden pour with active effervescence that conjures a fair white head leaving solid lacing around. A bit lacking in terms of hop brightness, rather mineral for the style as well, which disturbs the bitterness furthermore. otherwise, rather generic grassiness hides hop pretty much any trace of the deficient malts. Very dry palate ultimately, but lacking the freshness that could lead it anywhere close to glory.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Golden yellow colour with huge white head. Malty, grassy nose with toffee notes. Malty, grassy taste with notes of citrus and pineapple. Initial malt sweetness leading to a drier, nice grassy bitterness in the finish. Hops leaning slightly in the Czech direction. Classic pils, solid but unadventurous.
