Monchshof Kellerbrau

Type: lager
Origin: Kulmbach, Germany
Price: $4.75 per 0.5 L
NSP: 5.68
ABV: 5.4%

I picked this one up at Bottlecraft a week ago when we were getting provisions for a "light" get-together. I think of all the contributors, I like lagers the most, and tend to be my go-to. This is definitely a lager, and has all the hallmarks of one (light, crisp, soft head, not overly hopped). There is a bit more to this that I think puts it ahead of other lagers I've had and thats the considerable malt contribution. Its not a dirty maltiness like brown ales, but a crisp maltiness that lends a sweet nuttiness to the underlying lagerness (I know I used 'ness' four times there, so don't show your douchebagedness by pointing it out). Also, it is so light and refreshing that I could drink them all day.  So, long story short, you should try it.
