Three way collaboration between us, @kcbierco and @schoenramer. It is the recipe that Schönram’s Eric Toft developed in Germany. It is a Pils-type beer at a much lower gravity that helps keep the drinker functional but still tastes like a German lager. Special hops were sent out of Schönram’s private stash. Moderately bitter with a clean Pils like finish. Under 3% ABV. ⁣

Had on tap at the brewery


On arrival to the table a nice fine 2 finger head on top of a light straw golden body with an extremely light haze with lazy carbonation. Some nice lacing forms. The head quickly dissipates to a 2mm covering over top the beer.

Aroma is traditional helles with a certain Alger Aroma to it I've experienced in many German pils and helles. Behind that is a biscuity malt with a honey sweetness. Some light German hops are detected.

Taste has some spicy hints of noble hops alongside the slightly more bready now honeyed sweetness. Once the fermentation character and light hop bitterness subsides, the nice honeyed biscuit/bread note lingers and is quite nice. As that flavor fades a light lemon zest remains woth some nice light bitterness.

Feel is smooth and creamy, very refreshing with a medium carbonation bite. Very drinkable beer with some nice nuances and a medium long finish for the lightness in abv.

Overall this is a good helles, especially for being a lower abv option. The menu I saw only said below 3%abv so I don't have an exact number and if I get one I will update, but this is very tasty drinkable, and not to mention sessionable.
