WEISSENOHER BENEDIKTINER PILSNER

Weissenoher Klosterbrauerei Benediktiner Pilsner. So I've had better Pilsners. Lots of them.

This pours beautifully, which is probably one of its high points. Looks lovely with its rich head and light carbonation. And the label is pretty in a have-you-seen-my-etchings kind of way.

There are floral hop smells abounding early on, but the mouthfeel is a bit thin and light (at 4.9%, it's not thin and light).

There are light grainy tastes, light floral tastes and light malt tastes. The theme is "light".

The aftertaste is more disappointing, with some metallic tones but no lingering hints of anything you want to rush back for. 

It's not bad. By no means. You could actually have a pretty good session on it. But there are better pilsners around and it struggles to leave you with any lingering impression of an independent character.

 

6/10
