Hotter Than Helles LagerHotter Than Helles Lager

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida, United States

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.

A- pours a hazy pale golden-yellow color with a small fizzy white head that reduces quickly, leaving no fizz or lace behind.

S- sweet and bready malt with some lemony-citrus zest, subdued floral hop notes and some candy-like sugar

T-malty sweetness up front gives some grainy flavors, followed by lemon and coriander. Floral hop notes are noticeable in the back end that transitions into a lightly sweet malty finish

M- medium body and carbonation produces a foamy mouthfeel that finishes crisp, very drinkable

O- a grat option on a hot summer day. It's very refreshing and drinkable, while not sacrificing taste
