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.

Yellow, bright, clear thin white head; fresh malty aroma; pleasant lemony, crisp, dry flavour; quite a bitter kick in the finish; a very decent lager.

Sampled from a bottle. Pours a lemon yellow colour with a white head. Refreshing and bitter taste with hints of straw and honey. Tastier and more bitter than most lagers.

Jonb5 (488) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2016
Pint at sir Christopher Hatton A: Pale colour, clear, small to medium head, moderate retention, left some lacing. S: Toasted honey gave way to lots of red cabbage. T: Basically following the nose, watery texture but quite refreshing. M: Light, but a bit watery. O: I wanted something light and refreshing, this fitted the bill pretty well, although there are much better Bavarian alternatives out there.

A light refreshing lager with a hint of floral hops. Great session beer as not overpowering.

cagou007 (881) - FRANCE - FEB 23, 2016
On tap at Generator Hostel, London-- Pours clear golden with medium white head. Nose is sweet malts. Aromas are grains, herbal hops, mineral notes. Average carbonation, light body. Medium bitter finish. Tastes like any industrial lager, nothing like a real German helles here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steffan (41) - WALES - FEB 8, 2016
Smell of hay, grass, straw like colour, small but persistent head with good lacing. Great balance between the sweet malts of a good helles and bitter hop profile of very good pilsener beer. Great balance and very pleasurable beer.
