This lager is brewed in accordance with the Bavarian Helles style, which I tasted on tap at the Greenwich Union pub, a brewery tap of the Meantime Brewery.

It pours a dark-golden hue, with a short-lived white beer head and medium-carbonated body, with very very fine bubbles detected. The smell is very very grainy, slightly sweet for me, with a slightly caramelised sugary note and very soft aromatic hop background. On the palate, there's a mouthful of slightly buttery or butterscotch-like malty flavour, combined with semi-sweet apple or Fuji apple-peel like aroma and just a touch of toffee in the mouth. Quite refreshing mouthfeel, if not too thin in terms of body, but a balance is retained rather than being overly malty.

Overall, this is a quality lager, though not as malty and fullsome as some German Helles products I've tried; but even if it was, the style is not so much my cup of tea anyway, hence the relatively modest rating here.

Serving type: on-tap
