Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: PorterLambic on 09-28-2011

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.

Jan 29 on can poured on Mar 6. Pours a light golden from the can into a pint glass. Not much head or retention. Smells of light fruit with a standard lager aroma. Light mouthfeel with low carbonation. Sweet light fruit and not much to get excited about. Par for the style and easy summer drinking. Just can’t get into the style all that much.

A- Hazy yellow typical of the style

S- mainly just citrus

T- Floral and lemony

M- light with less carbonation than I expected

O- CCBs super drinkable beer if you aren't a Jai Alai fan like me. just too delicate and mundane in my opinion, but if this is your style than definitely worth a try
