Durham Brewery Helles (4.5%)

Durham Brewery have an unnerving knack of getting their beer just right.
Take this as an example.
This is a light and crisp Munich style Lager that’s so beautifully poised that I could happily drink it all day.
Pouring a light straw colour, the aroma is honeysuckle and hibiscus, sweet and floral, gentle and inviting.
The malt body is soft and subtle, chewy and creamy, with honey, toffee and brown bread, while the hops – Hersbrucker, Saaz, Cascade and Ernest – bring a bright snappy slap of herbal greenery, spicy and almost woody hedgerow, and just a splash of lemon and lime as you head into the long, dry finish.
Great stuff.
