3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Monks Porterhouse as Monks Cafe Bavarian Pils. Pours hazy sparkling yellow with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of sticky lacing on the glass. Smell is grainy and floral with crackers, cereal, toasted grains, baked pears, hay, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is sweet, bitter, grainy and floral. Mouthfeel is tiny crisp, slightly round, slightly astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with cereal, toasted grains, hay, dried flowers and lemon peal. Decent Pilsner but a but too grainy for me...

Really good pilsner. Aromatic in nose, crisp and grassy/herbal in flavour with a dry finish. This is what German pilsner should taste like. One of the best!

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.
