Red Helles

Brewery: Barnaby's Brewhouse

ABV: 4.8%

Bottle Size: 330ml


A fresh opening, and a bitter aftertaste


Dark orange colouring


Slightly hoppy but can also smell the malt

Final Verdict:

Having happened across a Barnaby’s Brewhouse selection at Dart’s Farm I was delighted to be able to bring one home. Since we started looking at local breweries, Barnaby’s has been one which I’ve been keen to try and haven’t managed to find in Plymouth.

My initial thoughts were of slight disappointment. I was hoping for a beer which would impress, but I was struggling to pin down flavours and I didn’t find the experience completely pleasurable. It wasn’t a dislike, but just not what I expected.

That being said, the taste improved as I got used to it. The further through it I got, the more I began to enjoy the beer. The strong flavours start to really come through and make the drink one to savour.

Overall, this is a nice beer. I think I may have made the wrong choice from the Barnaby’s range for my first encounter, but I’ll be back for more!
