The lager category encompasses many beers that use lager yeast, which ferments at the bottom of a vessel and can withstand cold temperatures, while ales are traditionally top fermenters and will not ferment cold. Lagers are cold conditioned to smooth out flavors. Ours is based on a Munich Helles style developed in Germany as a light colored lager with a balanced malt and hop profile. Low hop bitterness. Grainy pilsner malt aroma.

On tap at Tap 25. It pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma is grainy, fresh bready pilsner malt with a touch of sweet apple skin. The flavor is nicely dry with a very spicy, minty hop bitterness. Grainy malt backbone. Solid bitter finish. I know it’s not characteristic of the Helles style, but I would have liked to see a bit more aroma hops here to match the bitterness. Still very tasty.

Tap at Dust Bowl - I enjoyed this one quite a bit, and it kicked off the 11-beer tasting with my brother and nephew (okay, he didn’t drink but he was there). Aroma was pretty mild with a cane sugar aroma mixed with a subtle yeast aroma. Flavor had a nice showing of caramel-like malts, but just right for the style. Really clean, really flavorful with no noticeable flaws. Highly quaffable and pretty spot on for the style.

Draft, at Dust Bowl Brewing Company. Pours a bright, clear golden color; fine-bubbled head with solid retention and lacing. Nice rounded Pils maltiness in the nose; crisp, lightly zesty. Perfect mouthfeel: crisp, clean, with lively carbonation; hugely rounded Pils malt character with just enough mineral bitterness to frame it; a textbook, vibrant Helles. Delicious.

Draft. Golden beer with a whitish head. Fruity and light mineral aroma. Light mineral and grain flavor. Medium bodied. Grain and mineral notes linger.
