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.

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.

wheresthepath (1876) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle from The Grumpy Goat, Reading. Pours very pale gold with a spartan white head and a thin but prickly fizz. On first taste it’s sweet, watery and fairly tasteless. Perseverance does pay off to a certain extant- it gets smoother and creamier and there’s a little lemon, some floral hops and some Kelloggs Frosties (other brands of sugar-coated soft corn are available). Somehow you can taste that quality ingredients have been used- someone who liked it may describe it as subtle and refined. On the other hand its all so subtle and gentle that others may describe it as inoffensive and bland. For myself I started off in the latter camp, feeling angry that I’d been ripped off with a craft price for a macro- style lager. However, the more I drank the more I moved into the "refined" camp, and my score gradually increased from 1.8 to 2.4 over the first half of a bottle. I wonder how much was drunk by the ratebeerians giving the highest scores for it? It’s crying out for a branded gold-rimmed glass. It’s certainly a beer to befuddle lovers of the 30ml "Scandinavian pint"... Near the end of the bottle now and there’s definitely custard cream biscuits. And sherbert. Score up to 2.7 at the end, how high would it go with s second bottle...!

hawthorne00 (3046) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2014
Can. Straw coloured with a white head. Light hay pale malt aroma with a little pepper.. Very soft in mouth, not much sweetness. Clean with a dry but not very bitter finish. Little waft of herbs, lemon and pepper at the end. Decent, well-made beer.

RhetoricalAns (666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow pour, thin almost non-existent white head. Little bit of cereal malt and some hops in the aroma. Taste is fairly similar, body is a little watery. Not bad per-say but a little weak.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Feinmildes Lager, das genau in die Richtung eines angenehmen Hellen bzw. Dortmunders geht. Kein grosser Unterschied zu unseren Klassikern mit ein wenig Butter, etwas Vanille und einer feinen Malzigkeit. Kein großes Bier, aber sehr gut und klassisch, um den Abend zu beginnen.

Benzai (11307) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
Draught at the brewery. Clear a bit pale golden color, average sized dense white head that lasts for quite a while. Smell and taste lightly malts, a hint of hay. Can’t get a lot more, perhaps because the beer is quite cold. Decent.

Ferris (8929) - 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.
