Poured this Munich Helles from a 12 oz bottle into a ping glass. Poured a clear pale golden color, produced a thick white head, excellent retention and left a nice amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is full of malted barley, fresh cut grass and floral hops. Light in body, this Helles is full of malted barley, fresh baked bread, and a hit of hops at the finish. Clean, crisp, refreshing and this is even better on Tap I have had the privilege of drinking this fresh at Hofbrauhaus in Munich, while i would say it was much better in person on tap- I enjoyed this bottled version very much. Prost!!!

16.9 ounce bottle poured into a Wicked Weed snifter

A - crystal clear medium gold with a nice two inch head with spectacular retention and lacing

S - The nose is not particularly notable. Bit of a fresh smell.

T - This is just a great tasting lager. Very crisp and full bodied with a clean finish.

M - medium thick, great carbonation.

O - what's not to love. It is not overly complex, but it is just a great beer.
