COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth, clean, golden lager, with a light-medium body. Defined by a slightly sweet, malty profile, Pilsner malt flavors dominate, balanced with a subtle hop flavor. This style of lager, Munich Helles, was created in 1895 and has become one of the most popular styles of beer in Bavaria. A blond beer exuding a deep, malty character with a smooth finish. Served in a German crafted Maximilian .4L tankard.

Nose of bread, light to moderate sweet maltiness, and a soft noble hop presnce. perhaps a touch of apple. Pours golden, thin head that settles to not much of anything. Flavors of bread, soft malty sweetness, a little noble hop and a touch of green apple. Carbonation could probably have fit to be a little more assertive. Meh.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a medium foamy white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of herbal hops and malt. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter herbal hops character with some sweet malt and fruit in the background. The finish is lightly hoppy with a short fruity aftertaste. Decent for the style.

Draft at brewery: I suppose this one would make a good stepping-stone beer for A-B MillerCoors drinkers. Itís light and clean with only a hint of bitterness. Itís also crisply carbonated, making it refreshing and easy to quaff. Other than some faint flavors of bread and toast, itís pretty muted and non-palate-challenging. Perfect for tourists in search of something like Bud, etc., I suppose.
