Impression: Great looking beer with a massive rocky lasting head with a faint nose of grain and malt. I’m in the process of trying the very readily available Mönchshof line-up here in Munich. Yesterday’s Zwickel was light on flavor compared to its impressive visual. This one looks as good and while again a bit thin on flavor, it’s got a bit more hops. This makes it a touch drier and gives it an ever so slight bitterness. Again, the word smooth comes to mind and if that’s your thing, this isn’t a bad pick up if far from the real McCoy it’s worth traveling to Franconia for. I might not get it again but would buy it over the Zwickel any day. As it warms, it’s revealing more hops and flavor. Nothing amazing but I’d not shy away from drinking it again.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
