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.

The scent is vaguely grassy hops and malt. The taste is slightly sweet with hints of grassy hops and butterscotch. The aftertaste is dry and bitter. Well, not bad but there is much tastier pilsner than this!

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.
