Clean & refreshing, this Bavarian style lager uses four different German grains & three hop varieties to create an intricate flavor profile & a beautiful deep golden color. Helles is brewed in the style of Munich’s everyday drinking beer. Prost!

Had this on tap at Yesterdays here in Newport. Asked the bartender to suggest something light and this is what he gave me. He told me, "Its actually a Lager" and I shuttered.

Poured with an ample head. Nose is of wheat and malt. Full, crisp, light flavor of malting, wheaty up front then retreating to the back of the palate. This beer is extremely drinkable and I would have it again as a thirst quencher. Nice and light.

Quite simply the best lager I've ever tasted (but this come from a non-lager drinker!). Enjoy.

Serving type: on-tap

A-hazy dark gold color with a small head that left fast
S-some lemon and yeast aroma
T-lemon, malt and yeast with some hop bitterness in the aftertaste that fades into a nice finish
M-light body and medium carbonation
O-smooth with a nice bitterness to it that would make this a good beer for the springtime

This and Heineken are my absolute favorite beers and they brew this 2 miles from my house! The only downfall is that at all of the Fordham/Old Dominion events including R2Hop2 and etc. they never have it to fill your growler! The taste is unbelievable! This is a great beer and typing this I'm going to get some at Dover Liquor Warehouse by my house! I am now editing cause I got the last sixer at store!
