Brilliant golden yellow color. Aromas of lemon curd on muffin, lightly floral honey, and hint of orange balsamic vinaigrette with a medium body and a somewhat odd, buoyant buttery caramel corn, cashew nougat, coconut custard, and microgreens finish. An interesting, slightly tropical sweet and sourish lager for summertime fare.

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.
