Had this on tap at the Greenwich Union pub (basically the brewery tap). Looked good, although I dont like the pint glass shape they use at this pub.
Was a little dissapointed with this beer as it was far too malty, and did not give the smooth, easy drinking quality I would expect from a Helles.
Still, better than a macro lager at a normal pub.

Half pint in the Greenwich Union, Meantime Breweries tap house: Light golden body, bright, clear and clean looking: a typical Helles/Pils/Lager in fact, even down to the thin white head that didn’t hang around for long.
Standard aroma of not much (from Helles/Pils/Lager): suggestions of floral hops and shortbread biscuits if I’m being kind.
Again nothing to push it above other Helles, light tasting blend of bland ingredients that give a mild hop/malt flavour which didn’t excite or interest me a great deal.
Carbonisation as you’d expect, giving it a pop/fizzy zing to it: maybe if it had been drank in a sunny beer garden in Munich instead of cold pub just outside London it might have faired better in the scoring, but I doubt it!

Drank on tap an the Union Pub Greenwich.
This was a decent Helles although a tad too malty for me . The appearance was good and the mouthfeel was good. The smell was grainy malts with a little lemon citrus.Not a bad example of the style.Although I probably would not seek it out again,

I had this on draft at the Market Porter, it is a very good English Lager, well rounded in taste and appearance. As the previous reveiewer said, it could use a little more hops, but all in all another well done Helles Lager from the folks at Meantime.

On-tap at the Crawford St Beehive in London, poured into a half pint.
A: Clear gold body with delicate bubbles rising to a thin, wispy layer of white foam. Filled almost to the brim, which means more (but uglier) beer for me. Ok.
S: Floral + fruity, with some grassy hops and bready malts blending cleanly with some lightly sulfurous lager yeast. Pretty standard.
T: The malt and yeast overpower the hops, which breadiness and lager east being the only real flavors. Kind of bland.
M: Creamy medium body with soft, understated carbonation. Lovely.
O: Not a bad lager, but not a good one either. There are too many better beers around London to seek this one out.
