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.

First rating: Medium white lasting head is creamy on top. Yellow body. Fruity strawy grassy aroma is kind of faint. Dry-sweetish mealy strawy grassy taste with peppery notes. Mid-bodied. Dusty mouthfeel. Bitter grassy aftertaste is sort of simple. Not bad, but not very good, either. (0.33l draft at Monk’s Café, Stockholm, as Monks Bavarian Pils.) 5,3,6,3,12=2.9
Second rating: Big coarseish offwhite head. Clear yellow body with light
carbonation. Light herbal mealy aroma with fruity notes. Dry strawy
linoleum taste with papery floral notes. Mid-bodied. Slightly
abrasive mouthfeel. Dryish herbal floral spicy aftertaste with papery
notes. Interesting. Definitely has character, but perhaps a little
sharply papery. (0.33l bottle, from Systembolaget, Torp.) 5,4,6,3,11=2.9
