COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the Pilsner beer spread through Germany in the late 1800’s the Darker beers were fading in popularity but in Munich they were still king. Eventually Munich’s response to the foreign pilsner was the “Helles” Lager. Lighter in color, with less hop flavor and bitterness than the Pilsner. A well developed bready flavor was the main highlight of the Helles. Today the Helles beer is the everyday drinking beer in Germany. It’s malty, balanced, easy-drinking character has earned it the sobriquet “liquid bread”, and it is often served for breakfast. Helles retains less alcohol than a Pilsner, averaging between 4.5-5 percent; they are more full bodied, than thin.
