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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale green golden colouring, low lacing head.
Bready malt aroma with hints of aromatic hops.
Lightbodied, onedimensional malty pils, some flowery hops help a bit - its nowhere near what the commercial description promisses though.

Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2009, as Monks Cafe Bavarian Pils. Golden color with long lasting head. Firm honeyish malty aroma. Malty and honeyish flavor with medium bitterness and some herbal hops.
Smooth palate. Good maltiness but this needs more hops.

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.
