Brilliant golden yellow color. Buttery, perfumed, fruity aromas of butterscotch, citrusy yogurt, fresh flowers, and dried citrus with a creamy, tart, spritzy, fruity sweet light body and a sleek, medium-length tangy lemon, first proof sourdough, bitter greens, and dried orange peel finish. A smooth, sweet Lager for dessert lovers.

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.
