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.

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.

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.

Draught@The Jolly Butchers, Stoke Newington. This is such a nice helles. Nice appearance, glowing yellow, frothy head. Crisp aroma and flavour, some lightly sweet malts and then some crisp, fruity hops, dry, with some soft bitterness, nice round mouthfeel. Very good.

Leighton (18529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2010
Tap at Jolly Butchers. Pours a clear, very pale yellow with a light, white head. Pale malt aroma with crackers and faint straw. Flavor holds light sweetness with some sweat, good, biscuity cardboard and just hints of hops. Light in body with fine and lively carbonation. The finish has more easygoing, biscuity malts and light, crisp, short bitterness. A nice take.

Vignale (3328) - 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.

This is as good as lager gets for my palate - good mouthfeel - pleasant enough for a thirst quencher before moving to an IPA.

On tap at Euston Tap. Looking forward to this as people have liked it. Clear pale gold thin white head. Yea good clean helles. I like this. Some lemon on the finish. Good sting on finish. Very drinkable lager. Lovely and light and refreshes you. Some sherbert finishing hop. Super.

Fine malty body with some cereals, not too light. Well balanced by Central European grassy hops. A pleasant refreshment.
