Category: Munich Helles

Date Tasted:

Clear straw green color. Grainy aromas and flavors of buttered peppercorn muffin, kale, spiced jicama, and clay and wax paper with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, breezy finish imparting notes of delicate cinnamon roll and watercress finish. A grainy, refreshing helles with nice balance and quaffability.

Munich Helles

Beer Glass Pilsner Gold.jpg
Serve in a Pilsner Glass
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.
