The perfect Munich Helles Lager. To bad can't find it in the states. But always a treat when visiting Germany.

I would rate that beer as being UTTERLY SUPERB!!

Great smooth taste, though czech lager lovers might not appreciate it since there is zero bitterness in the taste.

As for me a beer of pure perfection!

A light yellow golden beer with a white medium head. The aroma is typically sweet and malty. Nose is mild and herbal, wood and malty. Malt aroma balanced with the note grassy hop aroma. Modest bitterness and carbonation combine nicely in this beer. Some seawater, peanut and cereals. No doubt best helles, and one of best beer generally.

This is THE benchmark for lagers, hands down. Having used to think Weihenstephaner original was the prototype, a visit to München and a few dozen of these over my visit thoroughly changed my mind. The absolute definition of balance and drinkability without tasting simply watered down. Not overly sweet nor overly hopped like many Helles, particularly American clones. All hail the standard bearer for the type. The greatest shame is that this brew is not exported whatsoever; the Augustiner Edelstoff is not up to par.
