Pours a clear yellow with thick, fluffy head.

Smell is clean, crisp and bready with some floral notes.

Taste is malty and bready with a nice floral bitterness and a hint of rye. Very clean, very crisp, and very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is meidum, well carbonated.

Overall, a really nice pilsner, simple and clean.

got a bottle of vague acquaintances to taste at home

popping swing-top cap, thick fat foam, scanty malt aroma, full of sweet and co2 form a solid lager

Pours very clear and very pale, with a medium head that dissipates with spotty lace. Nose is freshly grainy with hay and a touch of sweetness. Unfortunately, the taste is watery with rough carbonation. Not much going on there at all, but fortunately it is free of off flavors. Overall, not terrible, but not something I'd buy again.

Part of a Monchshof sampler pack from Toom Getrankmarkt.. Middle of the road pilsener. Nice hoppy bitterness and lingering palate. All else is normal pils....

The taste is fine. However, the hops flavor is questionable. Their bitterness is not balanced by another more pleasing flavor. The carbonation is somewhat excessive, but I could see myself drinking this again in the future. If it's around, drink it.

Crystal clear apple cider like liquid with a fat stack of white big bubble head

Crisp malt and hops on the nose, a little yellow haystack in there as well

Light malts lead the way with slight bitterness in the rear

Light to medium mouth feel average carbonation

Overall a solid staple beer; refreshing and light but doesn't taste cheap.

Pours clear straw beer with decent white head, moderate retention. Aroma - sweet grains and herbal hops. Flavour follows the smell, delicate hop bitterness. Solid pilsener.

This is maybe the best pilsner I´ve tried. It´s very complex and full of character. Looks golden, not so pale, with a white thick foam head, smells like base malts and is a little hoppy.
