Scopey (8813) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Can from Whole Foods London Piccadilly. It pours clear golden with a decent white head. The nose is soft, sweet, bready action, dough, cereal, pale and a bit pissy. The taste is crisp, clean, light bitterness, sweet doughy malts, creamy, cereal, fresh lemon, grassy, earth and light metallic twang with a smooth, dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded and good drinkability. Very nice lagery action.

Can from Booths. Clear golden with little head. Surprisingly this had almost no aroma. I found it bitter, dry and tasty and a pretty authentic helles. I like it but my wife didn’t, she thought it was bland, which I suppose is fair enough following a Brewdog IPA.

This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a decent transparency about it. Streams of carbonation rise at a moderate pace to fill a sly rapidly dissipating head. Leaves some light lacing roaming here and there. The smell starts with a sweet wheat and runs into a light little kick of spice as it warms. Semi-grassy but crisp and refreshing breadiness. The taste grabs the sweet wheat and combines it nicely into the spice, adds a little breadiness and blends into the aftertaste. There’s no finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a purely wonderful sessionability about it. Carbonation is light and gentle but still good for the style and for me. Overall, as a Munich Helles lager, there’s nothing wrong with it. Its good and I would definitely have it again.

Benzai (9915) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2015
Can @ home. Lightly hazy pale yellow color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, lightly wheat, a hint of yeast, lightly hayish and a soft hint of bitter in the finish. Soft carbonation, soft mouthfeel, average body. Easy drinkable low ABV beer. Not bad.
