From BeerAdvocate Magazine #73 (Feb 2013):

Although the idea behind a Helles Lager is that it’s “lighter” than other German lager styles, this one is perhaps a bit too light. The lack of a malt backbone allows biscuity flavors to dominate and leave the palate with an unpleasant tannic linger. No distinct hop character either. Basically, it’s missing the trademarks of this classic German style.

STYLE: Munich Helles Lager
ABV: 4.3%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Bright golden, lively, creamy white lacing

SMELL: Bready, light floral

TASTE: Light bodied, watery, biscuity malts, hay, faint citric, hint of grape, dry, tannic

Clean, light lager with biscuit malt flavor. Easy drinking and better tasting than many big brewery lagers. Served on tap - minimal head and no lacing.
