Munich Helles Lager |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Munich Lager is a nod to the thirst quenching lagers of Germany. Our Helles has a sweet malt expression that is balanced by floral bitterness from the use of German Hallertaur Mittelfruh hops. A very refreshing beer that will also entice you by its subtle complexity and drinkability.

12 oz can, hotel water glass

A – Medium straw to pale gold, very high clarity. A half inch of bright white foam head, dissipates leaving a thin layer on top. Lots of effervescent bubbles.

S – Clean, uncooked white bread dough. Possibly some earthy, noble hops.

T – Again, a doughy, floury profile, part of a strong malt backing, moderate but relatively flavorful bitterness, just a touch of grainy, herbal noble hops.

M – Very clean, fresh, fairly thick on the palate, but the moderate carbonation is enough to cleanse the tongue. Somewhat juicy finish.

O – An excellent smooth lager, nothing bad to say about it. A solid lawnmower beer.
