COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & Bottle;
Helles and Pilsner combine Ė the pale, crisp body of Pils with the gentle hop profile of Helles. Itís 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, itís how a great lager should taste.

Bottle. Not the worst lager Iíve had but certainly not in the league of the German lagers that is trying to emulate.

Very pale yellow pour with a thin spit lace. Refreshing malty aroma. Thin body. Slight hint of malt but overall is lacking.

Garrold (1214) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from Waitrose. Pale grassy, chardonnay like colour. Thick, lasting white head. A lightly hopped, sweet malty easy drinker.

CraftBeerNick (861) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at home in garden, 10th August 2013. Above average lager, good taste. Not overly carbonated, which is my preference.

evergreen0199 (1995) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle bought at Waitrose in Rickmansworth, Herts. A clear golden coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Vague hoppy aroma. Tastes slightly hoppy, malty, little lemon, thin and bland. Why bother?

disappointing;this is not"how a great lager should taste". there is nothing really wrong with it,except that 1/2 of the other lagers brewed(all over the world)are better.

Beese (1625) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Draft at The Horseshoe in Hampstead, London on 1 July 2013. Pale, clear golden colour with a thin white head. Delicate aroma or floral hops. Flavour has some initial light hop bitterness followed by a bready malt sweetness.

chimpgibbon (296) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
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. Didnít 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
