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.

Towey1989 (1572) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet grain, lemon, some vegetable and grassy hops. Taste of sweet grain, lemon, straw, some bread and grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A bittersweet, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Ok for a lager but I was expecting better from Camden Town. Disappointed.

weordie (711) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Pours golden with a good foamy head. Aroma is a bit biscuity, sweet, like most lagers. Pleasant palate but the taste is your usual lager, some sweet malt but I just hate lager.

Hop_Hedonist (441) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2015
This is as good as lager gets for my palate - good mouthfeel - pleasant enough for a thirst quencher before moving to an IPA.

Bottle at home. Mildly spicy. The taste has a subtle maltiness. A little thin on flavour.

Drank as a draught. Not that special, a bit sweet taste but still better than your usual lager.

McNeillR (2147) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Palest golden, greyish and visible carbonation. Greasy veg, dry grass nose. Initial taste is muddied lemon juice, quickly fades to a dull oaty, dusty rusk middle. Firm carbonation throughout aids a swift finish and rip of tinny bitterness on the linger. Fairly drinkable but very flavourless.

Bottle, Waitrose
