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.

Pyobon (1251) - 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.

ALLOVATE (2816) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2014
Uninspiring, brilliant straw gold with minute, intermittent carbonation and headless bar a ring of white. Grainy, dusty, malt husk and cereal-like nose; clean of nasties. Malt forward but so lean and tight it was hard to differentiate character. Grainy like the nose with a powdery texture amid a featherweight body. Moderate carbonation adds race but little hops are noted. Finish is also grainy and a little clammy as it warms. Clean, but one-dimensional.

Tsekouratos (578) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - DEC 1, 2014
330 ml botle from The Local Pub, Athens Greece. Piss yellow color with a frothy white head. Aromas of grains, mayne some biscuit, with some hops. Taste is sweet and skunky at first, with grains, malts, maybe caramel and biscuits. Light body with medium carbonation. Not that bad...

Kauge (1266) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, City Beverage Old Streetil Londonis (£ 2,20). Valades ootamatult kahvatu, lausa valkjalt hele ja klaar, meenutades toonilt Buxtoni Moor Topi. Vaht on puhas valge, tihe ja püsib hästi ning kleepub seintelegi. Aroom... ebameeldivaid mälestusi esile toov läppunud nüanss domineerib, tunda ka... maisihelbeid, tainast ja nätsket saia, märga pappi, kriiti ja heina. Kusjuures tegelt väga halb polegi. Maitselt kergelt mõrkjas, heinane. Järelmekk humalane ja pisut torkiv, paletilt kuivapoolne ja mõneti kleepjas. Ergas, tugeva mulliga, väga kerge juua. (Mullide taandudes muutub ka vesiseks...) Kokkuvõttes tõesti mõnusalt värskendav. Minu arust etem ka kui Brooklyn Lager ja Samuel Adams. RB-s mu arust veits karm hinnang...

jjsint (1958) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle at the Avery, Cambridge. Pale yellow, somewhere between straw and clear. Skunky, grainy and lemon curdy smell. Taste is sweet with a sour/bitter kick: a lot better than you average lager. A bit of skunkiness in the finish but otherwise ok. Very nice palette with the right amount of carbonation. Mmmmm. Tickly. A good beer to rate and probably not have again anytime soon.

AWS9 (604) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2015 Tap. Decent golden pour with mild frothy head. Mild hops, mild bitterness... touch of grassiness and sharper hops remind you of the "hells"-ness, but certainly more a lager at heart. And a pretty good one. Re-rate: had a bottle that was a touch off, which precludes me to slightly downgrade.

Bottled 330ml. -at Drouthy’s Bar Glasgow. Yellow coloured, small white head, lively carbonation, slight grassy nose. Sweet malty, grassy, cereals and faint fruity with moderate bitterness in the finish. Boring beer.
