COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Drank as a draught. Not that special, a bit sweet taste but still better than your usual lager.

McNeillR (1595) - SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Palest golden, greyish and visible carbonation. Greasy veg, dry grass nose. Initial taste is muddied lemon juice, quickly fades to a dull oaty, dusty rusk middle. Firm carbonation throughout aids a swift finish and rip of tinny bitterness on the linger. Fairly drinkable but very flavourless.
