old rating: 5 2 6 2 10
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.

Bottle from Pivnizub - many thanks! Beer pours out in a light, clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of hopsand citrus. Taste of bitter hops, grass, light malt and grains. Quite dry-bitter hints, but a nice and quaffable finish though. Refreshing and honest - nice one.

Klassches feinherbes Pils mit leichter Hopfennote und milder Malzigkeit - dazu noch von pivnizub gespendet. Nicht schlecht für ein Allerweltspils !

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.
