Style: Munich Helles Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

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.

Pours dark yellow with a slight white head. Aroma is super bready as expected for the style but not too heavy, a touch of citrus peal, and grass. Flavor follows suit. Creamy, medium bodied active mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice helles lager here. Definite fan and would be happy to drink again.

My rating: 4

Lightly carbonated, this is a highly drinkable summer time lager. Though it had zero head retention nor lacing. Perhaps I got a lemon. Refreshing drink however, I was just expecting a little more.
