Pours a crystal clear yellow, with thick head.

Smell is clean and citrusy with notes of crackers and floral hops.

Taste is clean and slightly earthy with notes of crackers, floral hops, ctrus and a moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a very nice Helles, clean and crisp.

Pours as a golden and foamy, mildly fermented liquid.
This Monchshof is a very mild and crisp bavarian helles, not as hoppy as most of helles usually are, which surprised me. Delicious and smooth, perfect for a warm summer day. It's quite cheap in Germany and with all its good features it's my go to beer for the next three years we'll live here.

Its a nice pils. Better than a Bitburger. Hop front and malty after taste. A basic go-to brew.

Pale yellow. Smell: bread. Taste: sweetish, mild. Very light, goes well with sausages. Prototypical helles.

Crystal clear straw color with frothy white head. Aroma is grassy, hoppy, earthy, green with a light biscuity malt note in the background. Taste is earthy, leans mostly towards bitter but not too intense. Really clean malt profile. Light body with medium carbonation. Really easy drinking, fresh and grassy.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Very clear straw color, almost gold. Very filtered. Very clear

Smell: Earthy smell. Can really feel the barley in your nose. Crispy but not harsh good example of the type.

Taste: Weak yet smooth. Represents a smooth summer beer.

Mouthfeel: Watered down, yet smooth. Not full in your pallet enough to sip on yet not fill you.

Overall: This is a good summer sipper but not one I personally care for. It would be good in a summer beer garden to wash down a good walk, but not a stick to your ribs beer hall brew.

Very pale colour, clear, medium thin head which was quick to fade. Aroma was grassy and hade notes of red cabbage, reminded me of beers brewed with Saaz hops. Tasted slightly watery, notes of honey, grass and grain. Finish was bready and sour dough like. Texture was slightly syrupy, soft carbonation, coarse edge which I couldn't understand, given the other aspects of the mouthfull. Easy drinker, but with less character than other Helles from the region. Not offensive and would take it above the Monchshof pils.

A decent outing from Monchshof. Average helles lager here, nothing to set it apart form the crowd, but not bad either. I was hoping for a really exceptional one, as I’ve had decent beers from Monchshof in the past, but will settle for it on a hot day...

Pours clear yellow with large white head, patchy lacing. Aroma is mostly sweetish malt.

Taste is sweetish malt, mild herbal hops with a small lemony bite. Mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation and the beer goes flat quite soon.

Overall, refreshing beer with no character, does not seem to be worth buying again.

A: straw in color, completely traslucent, no too much carbo, head is 1 finger white and it shows good retention

S: lots of honey, grainy, sweet malts, vanilla, noble hops

T: clean beer, its kind of flat, the malts are low the noble hops are low too, it is refreshing but i was expecting more flavour

Pours the typical filtered golden color with a small white head...decent retention.

Strong notes of grain in the nose with a hint of herbal hops.

Notes of grains, red apples?, some herbal hops and a light bitterness.

Overall, not bad but a bit sweet and syrupy with the apple note dominating the taste.
