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

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

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.

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.

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...
