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.

Ferris (5001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Draft - Grains and some honey. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light grains and sweetness. Not very interesting, unfiltered is much better.

SilkTork (5277) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
330ml brown bottle from a UK supermarket. A drinkable but boring pale lager. Few hops, mild soap, soft body with soft carbonation. Little flavour or character. Inoffensive but not inexpensive. If you want your beer this bland, go buy something a little cheaper.

330ml bottle from Waitrose. Thin white head disappears quickly, no lacing. Pale golden body. Light straw on the nose. Flavour is grass, straw, biscuit, light bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation, clean crisp mouthfeel. Decent lager.

SlackerMads (1703) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle, best before 2014-11-10. Clear pale yellow with a medium sized diminishing white head. Sulphur, light citrus, light grain, straw. A bit low on hops. Light body, watery texture, medium carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. Ok drinkable and refreshing but could do with more pronounced hops and a little less sweetness.

varanid99 (560) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2014
Pale gold pour with a thin white head. Smelt a bit grassy and malty, nothing much beyond that but definitely not that Eurotrash funk to it. Sweet, malty, fairly crisp. Not much to it, but then nothing to really complain about either

thmsboyd (38) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle BBE 10/11/14. Vary malty, cereal nose with grassy hop character. Pale golden appearance with small, tight white head. Very crisp taste with a little bitterness. High carbonation and a fizzy mouthful. Lingering bitterness. Overall a very decent lager

Nutty and sweet aroma. Very light golden honey colour. Looks like a very pale lager. A bit too fizzy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from 2013. Middle of the road lager that is okay without being outstanding.

hohops (365) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Keg. Very clear and golden, a fizzy one finger white head. Aromas of wheat and cereal, a bit grassy. Taste- plenty of carbonation, fruity undertones, some bitterness in the finish, malty. Ok.
