COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden lager in the traditional Munich brewing style. This is what you find on tap in Bavaria instead of a Pilsener. With more malt character and less hop bitterness than a pilsener, our Helles is full flavored but crisp. Slightly lighter bodied than our Seven Sisters Münchner.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2009 Tap at 5 seasons. Pour is very light gold, crystal clear, good carbonation and a nice pure white head. Aroma is bready pils malt, light crackers, and fresh light herbal spicy German hops. Flavor is mostly clean fresh pils malt with some light sweetness and finishes with a clean hop bitterness. Overall very clean, full bodied for a helles, and smooth. Nice Helles.

Draft @ the 5. Poured a clear light amber color. Nice malty caramel aroma. Some sweetness. The flavor continues with the maltiness. Light notes of cereal. Dry finish.

Its not everyday that you can enjoy a helles on tap. I must add that the waiter was a fuckin prick. LIght copper color to it, lots of malts in the aroma. Not nad at all, a solid beer.

PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2005
On tap at the Brewpub in Atlanta. Light golden pour with a crisp, clean white head. Good, thick lacing is left behind in the glass. Fresh lake water aroma, not too noticeable. Some sweet honey accents ini the flavor with some underlying bready cake-mix like maltiness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Overall, decent.

Draft at the brewery: Poured golden yellow with a medium white head. Light spice aroma with hints of banana and lemon. Mild sweet finish. Crisp and tasty.

Ratings go poof? Anyway this was a pretty standard beer. A crisp grassy and lemon flavor. A very herbal citrus aroma. Pretty standard stuff really. Good for hot weather but these guys do alot better.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2005
Draft. Light gold/straw colored hue with fair variation and visible carbonation. Short, creamy, white head is short lived. Soft floral hops arive at the nose first followed by a delicate hay malt profile. There’s a hint of fruit (pears?) to go along. Solid, but not at the top of the style. Lightly sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Finishes dry and grainy without being astringent. Medium-light body, watery/soft texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: solid effort. Could use diversity in the aroma and flavor, but no real flaws.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Clear golden color with good head. This one has always had a very "off" aroma and flavor to me. Kind of sulfury, leaves a bad aftertasted. Not in line with beers in this style that I have had in Germany.

Just got back from Munich and this just was not true to the style. It missed the ballance of the Munich beers and a bit to much tang at the end. Sorry
