COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & Bottle;
Helles and Pilsner combine – the pale, crisp body of Pils with the gentle hop profile of Helles. It’s pale gold, refined, elegant and dry. Soft biscuity malt, a light lemony, peppery hop character and the sort of bitterness which quenches and never overpowers. Matured for a long time in tank, it’s how a great lager should taste.

Bottled; A good UK try @ a delicate Kraut style , props out ; A pretty crisp palate , bready malts are there but could be more beefy like in good German equivalents .. flavours of hay ,grass, straw , lemon hops ..

I tasted it in a pub near Primerose Hills. It’s a good lager, it pours golden and soft, with good taste.

The_Osprey (2785) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
Had kegged version a couple of times. This time it’s a 330ml can BB May 2015 at a BYOB. Interesting art. Slightly hazy yellow, lightly sparkling, very large foamy white head. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is very crisp, malty, a soft bubblegum note brings it down a bit, but overall it’s an above-average lager.

olsvammel (3874) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2014
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2014. Light malty smell, bready with honey and flowers. Similar taste, some soap. Light and easy to drink.

Pyobon (1027) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2014
(Bottle) Hazy pale straw with almost no head. Aroma is rather harsh grainy and cardboard but with hints of something interesting and sweet / floral. Light body with midst carbonation. The flavour is mostly rather grainy with somewhat harsh bitterness at the end. Thee are however some redeeming interesting fruity and sweet notes in the background. Overall it is not very good but not boring.
