Pale yellow color. Aromas of ripe banana and soft white bread with a round, vibrant, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a seamless, amusing, medium-length sliced bananas on water cracker, fresh croissant, black pepper, popovers with honey butter, and lemon curd finish. A round and creamy helles for a midday escape.

Munich Helles

Munich helles lagers are pale to golden in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-5.5%. These beers traditionally malt-accented with subtle hop character. They are generally weightier than standard pale lagers though less substantial than dortmunder export styles. The finest examples still come from the brewing center of Munich and are relatively easy to find in major US markets. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Full Sail LTD 03, Hofbräu Original Lager and Paulaner Original Munich Premium Lager.
