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.

Bottle from Vino Wines. Not something I drink often is lager. After a long hot cycle i thought why not! Pretty pale straw, barnyard and grass and lemon. Didn’t enjoy the taste at all for first half of bottle but then it grew on me. Unpleasant bitterness with a cardboard sweetness underlying. Gave way to a more palatable dryness in second half. Oh no.

Keg at Pratts and Payne. Very pale straw colour. Medium carbonation. Aroma is lightly malty with a little citrus and apple. It's OK. Light, slightly malty, slightly sweet with some mild citrus and green apply taste. Pleasant enough on a hot day but fairly bland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2013
Flaska på Nya Tröls. En lätt, mjuk och mild skapelse. Nybakt bröd, säd, lite jäst, blommor, och aningen citrus. Rena smaker, välavvägd, fin smakbild och mycket välgjord. Riktigt bra.

Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2013
Keg at Lyric, soho. It pours pale yellow with a small white head. The nose is grass, dough, pepper and light creaminess. The taste is clean, crisp, dough, light pepper, underlying sweetness and a touch of grass with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Good beer for a hot day.

Überraschend frisches Pils ähnliches helles Fassbier, kräftig, aber nicht schwer im Geschmack

maneliquor (2995) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle from Byron burger joint. Not great. Sweet and bready without much hop presence. Very clean is probably a positive. Wouldn’t have again

Rating this as a lager. It stands out a a great modern beer. Adds a bit more taste than the usual and yet maintains it’s roots as the everyman go to pint.

Bottle from Selfridges, Birmingham. Rather enjoyed this. It’s very slight, but the grainy malt flavour is nice - a good blend of dryness and feint sweetness. Enchants the tongue. Ethereal and easy to sip/gulp or ’sulp’.
