Munich Helles Lager |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A traditional Munich style lager, light, bright and golden in colour. Accentuated malt complexity, medium/light body with a hint of honey. Nobel hops add balance, spicyness and subtle bitterness. Probably the fullest tasting lager in the land! Lagered for 8 weeks prior to release.

3.5/5  rDev +4.2%

Supplied from the one and only EssexAleMan I had this soon after if was rescued from the shipping box.

Slightly hazy light yellow to the eye with a fierce head force and nice white head. Decent carbonation, slightly sour, fresh and quenching. Short end. Maybe a bit hollow with a bit of a carbonic bite at the end but more potent than the 5% ABV would suggest. In the end I liked it more than the score might indicate. Grateful for the opportunity to try this.

3.85/5  rDev +14.6%

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass. Purchased from the brewery at a fairly reasonable price (yes even for Welsh standards...)

Pours a hazy golden/amber colour with little head and lacing.

Smells faintly malty and fresh.

Tastes refreshing with a good level of malt. Light citrusy hop bitterness on the finish. Fairly wholesome.

Very nice, very refreshing and a great beer in the sunshine.

2.73/5  rDev -18.8%

660ml brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into English style glass beer mug in London. Bottle acquired in Cardiff right at the brewery. Reviewed live.

A: Two finger head of fair cream, pretty good thickness, and good retention. Colour is a cloudy yellow.

Sm: Lemon peel, full barley, and other pleasant esters. Moderate strength aroma.

T: Lemon and light orange citrus ester hops, moderately full barley, and stale sort of badly handled malt. Simple, crappy build, and below average balance.

Mf: Too wet, and a touch too smooth. Noncomplementary of the flavours of the body.

Dr: Average ABV, fairly easy drinking, below average quality, and an elevated price (by Welsh standards).
