Old gold color. Delicate, grainy, toasty aromas and flavors of raisin bread toast and honey butter with a supple, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long roasted nuts and golden beets and lemon pepper finish. A refreshing, flavorful 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.
