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.

Enjoyed at the CC Tasting Room. Light yellow with a large retained head. Tasty, it yields both sweet and sour interplay. Like a dirty yeasty blonde flvour, with a chile pepper finish. Yet no spices were included? Good that CC is doing these beers. A good late day beer. OK drinkability.

12oz can from Total Wine Tampa FL for 2$

Appearance - Slightly hazy gold colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint acing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, lemons, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn mixed with some bread and grains. There is also some light hops and some lemons. It ends with a lemony/grainy aftertaste.

Overall - A great beer for camping trips or tailgating for sure. It`s very refreshing and goes down fast. Not sure how true to style it is, but it`s still a tasty beer worth trying.

Poured out of a 12 oz can into a pint glass.

A – Hazy yellow pour that produced about 1 finger of clean white head that quickly dissipated. Tiny bit of lacing left on the glass.

S – Fairly light aroma with some yeast, corn and bread. Pleasant.

T – Touch of fruitiness/citrus. Very nice sweet malt taste with a bit of grainy feel. Just a bit of hops in there.

M – Seriously refreshing brew. Light and crisp on the palate. Nice carbonation.

O – Very nice drinking brew here. Light and tasty. Great beer for a hot summer day.
