Brilliant light gold color. Floral, sweaty, sulfurous, grassy, clean aromas of butter toasted multi-grain baguette with scrambled eggs, lemongrass tea, and sandalwood with a soft, crisp, finely carbonated, dry light-to-medium body and a sleek, short honeyed citrus peels, pepper bread toast, classic old world hop, and honeyed quince and melon finish. A brilliant, vibrant Helles with pinpoint precision and generous flavor.

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.
