Style: Munich Helles Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Rahr's Blonde Lager was the first beer to come out of Rahr & Sons Brewing Company. It is a medium-bodied traditional Munich-style Helles Lager that features a rounded maltiness without being too heavy. And like every proud Texan, it has a good head, is pleasant – but not overly sweet. Have some fun with a blonde today!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours out to a thin white head and minimal lacing. Medium gold and crystal clear. Aroma is very weak but clean with nice pale malts and slight grassy hops. Flavor is light and balanced with grainy pale malts, noble hops and clean, acidic bitterness with a spicy, dry finish. Mouthfeel is light but not fizzy or overly watery. Overall a solid Helles.

Update: I noticed that the on-tap reviews are coming in much higher than the bottles. I hope to review the on-tap version soon.
