Munich Helles Lager |  4.50% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Helles-Style Summer Lager is a bright, golden beer, perfect for summertime. The malts we use impart a wonderful, fresh grain character, reminiscent of European lagers. The German Noble hop, Mittelfrüh, lends a mild lemony, spicy flavor.

The German word “Helles” translates as “light” and “Lager” means “to store”. This beer style emerged in Germany through the Spaten Brewery’s marriage of British, Bohemian and German brewing techniques. This style is an integral part of brewing history and a predecessor of the straw-colored, light-bodied beers which are the most widely consumed beers in the world today. The lager yeast ferments the beer more slowly and at lower temperatures; it is then stored for maturation. This results in a beer which is more smooth and drinkable. Today, many American craft brewers offer this style as a maltier and hoppier alternative to American light lagers.

On tap at Hey Joe's, Cleveland MS

A: A clear golden orange with a white one finger head that lingered. Significant lacing.

S: Citrus and malts pop up, like a smooth summer rain. Oranges and lemons with barley goodness.

T: Smooth, sweet, easy drinking. The malt/citrus balance is very nice. Could put away a few of these without thinking. Great with the spicy chicken wrap I had.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: A decent summer lager. Anyone would enjoy this one. Balanced. Sessionable.
