BeerViking (1809) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 On tap at the brewpub, orange - gold with a thin white head, malt and a touch of orange on the nose. Malty, dry and lightly peppery body, long fruity bitter body. 2013 version is cloudy orange-gold with a slight bready body and a sharp bitterness. I think someone has the Nolte definitions wrong - the brewer calls the Hell a Heller Pils, while the Sommerbier is more of a hoppy Helles!
