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.

A light refreshing lager with a hint of floral hops. Great session beer as not overpowering.

cagou007 (1046) - FRANCE - FEB 23, 2016
On tap at Generator Hostel, London-- Pours clear golden with medium white head. Nose is sweet malts. Aromas are grains, herbal hops, mineral notes. Average carbonation, light body. Medium bitter finish. Tastes like any industrial lager, nothing like a real German helles here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steffan (67) - WALES - FEB 8, 2016
Smell of hay, grass, straw like colour, small but persistent head with good lacing. Great balance between the sweet malts of a good helles and bitter hop profile of very good pilsener beer. Great balance and very pleasurable beer.

sturmthis (1122) - Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2015
330ml can. Clear pale yellow color with one finger head. Bready and slightly peppery aroma. Taste is more of the same, grassy, very little pepper. Nothing special.

thellgren (824) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Draught (keg) @various places in London. This is quite nice lager. Malts and hops are in balance, neither one is dominating. Great when you are thirsty. Why people are drinking imported lagers in pubs?

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2015
33cl bb03/2016, ta idiosynkrasie. Much like a macro DE Dortmunder/Bavarian Helles crossover with the wafery-mineral malt base of a UK lager. Hints of pepper, starchy zest, lemongrass stalk. Powdery palate, hence not wholly refreshing.

worldbeertaste (1796) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2015
Pours clear gold with a foamy lasting head. Smells of of butter, hay, metallic notes and hints of malts. Tastes of sweet, smooth and grainy malts with hints of butter, hay and metallic notes. Finish is smooth, slightly sweetish and grassy with hints of butter and hay. Drinkable.
