Bottle at a tasting in Uppsala, July 2012. Thanks SaintMatty.
Almost clear golden with a medium white head. This was not that sweet. Bread, malt, some notes of metal and very light notes of hops. Drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, froman ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Sweet fruit caramel dominant in the nose with a slight fruity hop note, developing into Horlicks and honey. Very soft and quite sweet in the mouth with more caramel maltiness, honey and a slight flowery hoppiness emerging although the Horlicks disappears. Brief sweet finish becoming slightly hoppy and bitter

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Super Zabka, Handsworth. This is surely a Helles; for it has all of the prevalent bready sweetness. Nice unfiltered flavour, doesn’t suffer from warmth. Quite drinkable.

The head is ok, the body light and clear. It smells malty, hoppy, a bit metal. The taste is malty, bitter, flowery, fruity, aromatic. A bit boring.
