COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Helles” means “light or bright”, which refers to the beer’s pale color. KCBC’s Helles is a golden, Munich-style lager, which is the most popular style in Bavaria. This clean, crisp, medium-bodied lager has a pronounced bread and honey malt background; a clean medium noble hop bitterness; and a smooth refreshing finish. Our Helles is simple, honest and delicious. Just like homemade bread, you can enjoy it every day with almost any meal and never grow tired of it.

Half liter pour at the brewery. Really pretty to look at, gorgeous brilliant yellow body with active bubbles. Thick foamy bright white head. Nose is stereotypical "German" beer scent - gentle noble hops, fresh bread, and and a tinge of malt. The taste was also right on target for the style, while the mouthfeel was a bit thicker than I expected. Perfectly satisfied my craving for a German lager. I’ll be back.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 I take this to be KC Bier Co’s middle-of-the-road flagship beer. It tastes as it is described in the commercial description. It’s a delicious medium-bodied lager and very easy to drink.

Sampler at the brewery. Another stellar rendition. Perfectly clean, no flaws, great clean malts with a subtle noble hop character. Carbonation makes this go down so easy and maybe the best helles I have drank in a while.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a clear bright gold with a nice white head. Aroma of bread and grass. Taste is grass, bread, and malt. Well done. Very enjoyable.
