(draught @ The Man Of Kent. Rochester) Nothing much like a legit Helles. No depth to the malt , not bready. Go sample some before calling this stuff a ’helles’.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at the White Horse, Exchange Square. Clear, yellow-gold pour with a modest, white head. Some cereal on the nose. Lightly sweet flavor with some grains and light floral bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Has a faintly crisp finish, some sunkissed malts. A decent beer that could use a few tweaks.

Very fair and pale in colour and well carbonated with streams of bubbles. Aroma is exclusively citrousy with pine, which is very refreshing and mouth watering. On the taste it’s so lightly malted that it ends up being dry and chewy in the mouth, as the balance is in favour of the hops. I prefer more malt, but this is an interesting alternative to the standard lager, but a bit lite of flavour and body for me.

From keg@The Market Porter, London. A finger of dense blond head, upon a clear, shiny gold colored body. Superfresh aroma. Dry and crisp bready malt. Citrussy, floral and grassy hops. Clean and crisp malt body. Fresh lemony fruitiness. Grass and citrus from the hops. Well-bodied. Finishes dry and fruity with a nice hop twang. Utterly refreshing. Spot on! The best Helles I’ve had.

On tap at Evening Star, Brighton on 31 May 2010. Pale gold with thin partly lacing white head. Rich hop notes with a slightly nutty, savoury aroma on top of them. Main hop kick is lemon-citric and slightly grassy with an earthy pungency. Clean and refreshing. The finish is fairly short lived. Zingy, lively mouthfeel.
