COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest offering, “Helles” is German for “bright.” It is golden in color, and is a crisp, easy drinking beer for all occasions, a true session lager. The spicy hop characters are a bit more subdued and in balance with hops. It is our only lager that is filtered.

Bottle at home in Hackney - sourced from VT. Pours crystal clear yellow, lightly effervescent, with a creamy, white head. Crisp pale biscuits in the nose, light cereal, hay, white bread. Light sweet flavour, more fresh biscuits, straw, low bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Well balanced finish, with fine husky and grassy bitterness, more hay, biscuits, pizza crust. Quite excellent overall.

Onslow (1480) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Crystal clear light golden brew with white head and good head retention. Mild aroma of light lemony notes. taste is light clean and crisp. Somewhat doughy malt up front with a clean agile and slightly spicy finish. Given the constraints of the style, this is very good

WillRunForBeer (2623) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2016
12oz bottle from CBC. Thanks to last night’s discovery on a bottle of Von Trapp Dunkel I was able to hold this up to the light in the store and discern the "best by" date... 11/29/16. Pours a beautiful clear golden with a white head. Aroma is light malts, grass, slight hop spice (Saaz?). Flavor is crisp, slightly sweet, light grains, grass, a hint of Saaz hop spice at the finish. A well crafted example of a style that I don’t usually seek.
