Gold color. Aromas of fresh egg croissant, dried apricot, peach scone, and mead with a satiny, vibrant, effervescent, dryish light body and a warming, refreshing, medium-long tea with cream and herb focaccia finish. A very tasty Munich Helles with great integration of flavors; drink up.

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.
