Our Helles is a refreshing lager with a light (helles is German for light) golden color and just a touch of hops for a crisp clean finish. Perfect for any occassion, the Helles is the lightest of our styles.
Note: Formerly Einfach Helles.

drywallman (349) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2015
This one poured a slightly cloudy blond (consistent with style) and a quickly retreating white head. aroma was of a slightly biscuit malt, and citrus. Taste confirmed the same, with a slightly citrus/bitter hop finish to clean it up. Very drinkable.

nuplastikk (5168) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2014
12oz bottle. Gross buttery off aroma. Steam beer aromas, way off and bad. It really gets to me when someone who makes a publicly sold beer and doesn’t even have basic comprehension of the styles they think they are paying tribute to. Low appearance score for the lack of filtration. Embarrassingly weak and amateur.

rondphoto (3030) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 17, 2014
on tap @ Backpocket Brewing / Coralville IA --- Clear pale gold color, thin rim head, thin roller coaster of lace. Wheat and malt olpen this, and are matched by carbonation fizz in the palate. All fades to water quickly in the finish. There is some taste here, but mostly, this is a thin brew.

12oz bottle 9/28/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grains, malt, and slight hops. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew was not bad.
