COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Munich-helles style lager with the emphasis on complex malt flavors and low hop character - in accordance with the style. Brewed with 2-row pale and Caramel 60 malts and Saaz and Hallertau hops. This was the first American beer to certifiably pass the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of 1516.

Nothing real special. Very sweet malt flavor. Hallertau hops are slightly evident. Not bad, but nothing special.

Aroma: Smells like a German beer, but perhaps a little sulphury? Appearance: good, nothing special gold-amber Flavor 13, good but not remarkable. Does indeed taste like a German beer. Palate: somewhat thin and under carbonated. Good beer but nothing to write home about.

Has a nutty, bread-like quality that I find appealing... but I don’t like the cloying ’stickiness’ in the finish. Too much ’sweet’ also; I yearned for more ’crisp & clean’ in this Lager. Otherwise, not bad. Finishable.

An out of the park grand slam! This is the beer you’ve been looking for. A rich, malty Munich helles lager and the first U.S. beer to certifiably pass the German Reinheitsgebot Purity Law of 1516. This is a serious German-style lager. It was named 1998 World Champion Munich helles and has won more than its share of gold, silver and bronze medals all over the world. Sam Adams is good but Christian Moerlein is better and a lot more rare. Even better on draft than in the bottle! This is one of the original craft beers and well worth seeking out. Sells for about $5.99 for a 6-pack.

A typical bland beer.
