Mönchshof Original Pils
Style: Pils 4.9%
Head: white, creamy, rocky
Nose: light hops, faint grain
Palate: balanced, malty, light grain, underlying hops
Finish: lingering, semi-dry, slight bitterness
Served: from a bottle bought in Munich
Impression: Nice looking golden with an ample white rocky head and nose of a fair mix of grain and hops. More balanced and malty than classic German Pils but drier and more bitter than a Helles. Though nothing special, it’s one of their better beers, perhaps in part due to the reduced alcohol compared to their maltier other offerings. It holds up better than their other beers in the finish, thanks to some hops in the mix. Still, not overly flavorful and would pale in comparison to the better examples.
