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.

sturmthis (1081) - 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 (711) - 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 (3249) - 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.

borre_m (1199) - NORWAY - SEP 20, 2015
Pours clear light golden. Not much aroma. Taste is watery, a bitter finishing. A light flavoured beer, not very interesting.

ARH (1100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2015
On tap, poured into a sampler. The aroma, initially, has a light acetone note to it, but this is soon replaced by grains and pastry dough with undertones of mineral water and spice. The pour is a brilliant and oily clear light straw hue with an effervescent quality and a white, dense, dirty head that has mild retention and light lace. The taste is a medium light, near balanced, bittersweet. The texture is thin but oily with a slickness and a mild zippy carbonation. The light body is composed of flavors of citrus peel, spice, minerals, and banana bread. The finish is mostly citrus peel with a spice and the aftertaste is mostly clean with bitter lemon and mineral water.

Bottle. Poured white head that disappeared quickly. Clean with a slight bitter finish. Nice but unmemorable.
