COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional and Sweet. This Munich style Helles bears all its delicacies for you to enjoy with nothing to hide. Sweet candy-like malt sweetness and a hint of German noble hop flavor and aroma is what this craft lager is all about. Additional Information: When Ben (Hangar 24’s owner) and his wife Jessica were touring Germany on their Honeymoon they stopped at the Hoffbrau House in Munich and were amazed when they tasted their Helles. Lighter beers are normally boring, but well made Helles beer is definitely an exception and is now brewed for you in the only way Helles should be enjoyed. fresh and local.

Pours pale yellow with little head. Very little aroma, but it does smell good. Taste is OK, but not great. Average beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours a crisp yellow color with a sweet hops aroma. Taste is surprisingly sweet, almost candy like. A mild candy corn flavor. This beer is tasty for a light beer and the sweetness adds a nice twist. Not a beer I’d go out of my way for, but would order it if available.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2014
After a rough pour it produces up a pastel, sunny gold, shy of bright, with a flaccid, soppy white mess atop. Spicy, hoppy, lemon balm and Vietnamese mint dominated nose with just a flush of candied citrus and grass. Soft and subtle palate. Quite creamy giving it a false fullness with a dry, softly bitter and peppery finish. There is a juicy burst of citrus that gives it a plump sweetness too. The base malt is dusty and a little grainy and balances in well. Doesn’t represent the Münchener Helles we all know but as a lager it is a tasty and refreshing bench sitter. Not much length, it is crisp, clean and drinks well even as it warms. This is a very pleasing lager. Good stuff! (12fl.Oz can, coded 2 10 30 A 1 80, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Sample at GABF 2013. DMS-heavy nose of concrete mix and vegetables with burnt grain malt and noticeable diacetyl. Starchy and husky with a watery, thin, low acid, flabby body. Low bitterness, seemingly low sweetness but I think it’s more the sourness of the grains that leaves that impression on me.

Had a pint on tap at Mohawk Bend. Delicious, a bit on the round side, but still very drinkable.

Hazy golden yellow, moderate sized white head, good retention. Aroma is bread, grain, lightly fruity. Lighter bodied, drinkable, a touch too grainy but still quite drinkable.
