Pours clear gold, small head, fairly gassy. Biscuity doughy nose. Taste has some citrus hints, orange and a slightly hoppy finish, nowhere near as bitter as the stuff to come out of Holland. Well balanced tasty lager, but too gassy.

Keg, Salt Horse. Pours clear gold, lacy head, soft carbonation. Biscuity, malt aroma. Sweetish taste with soft citrus notes, very drinkable. Fades a bit by the end of the glass. Decent helles.

mile (4056) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2017
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, faint bread, light herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly grainy and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint bread, light herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, light herbal hoppyness. Your typical helles. Nothing wrong - nothing special. I wonder why Thornbridge is brewing helles lager?

Just too boring even for a lager, not a bad beer though, I just expected more.

rauchbier (3940) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Bottle. Hazy lemon gold, fluffy, lasting but thin white head, and gentle condition. Slightly peppery hop spiciness and a chalky grain note in the nose, sweet and grainy in the mouth with a solid balance of hop bitterness and a little background fruitiness. Finish is grainy and chalky bitter and quite sustained

330ml Bottle . Goes good with SBTB the College Years reruns : Lots of hay , dough , bread , herbal notes . Easy piss .I like this style and this is a good rendition.

77ships (11380) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2017
(2017 London) Sampled keg @ Craft Beer Co. Near clear golden, creamy white head. Nose is milky overly sweet grain, sugar, rotting cereal,… Taste is fizzy low cereal, vegetable, grain, milky, far too fizzy, vegetable. Disappointing.

I think this is probably the closest to a perfect lager being brewed in the UK. Technically brilliant. The score here is criminally low.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (312) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 26, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2017 It speaks volumes that the best lager in Asda is in the craft ale section. Fantastic lager that is a little bit pale (it is helles after all) but very tasty, with light carbonation. Bit of a shame the head disappeared so quickly but it did not detract from the taste, just the aesthetic.
