Light gold color. Aromas and flavors of whey, green apple, water chestnuts, and nut skins with a round, crisp, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, medium-length finish that presents overtones of dusty grain finish. A solid craft Helles for the table.

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.
