Brilliant yellow color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of peach marmalade, orange blossom honeycomb, spiced citrus chamomile tea, and toasted tortilla with a supple, vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an intriguing, long lemon pepper muffin, arugula, and orange sorbet finish. A delicious and well crafted helles for easy enjoyment.

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.
