Mit einem Stammwürzegehalt von 12,2% und einem Alkoholgehalt von 5,2% ist unser Kloster Machern Hell eine mit untergäriger Hefe vergoren typisch Bayrische Bierspezialität. Der feinwürzige, milde Geschmack rührt vor allem daher, dass das Helle schwächer gehopft und dadurch weniger bitter ist als ein Pils. So entsteht die leicht vollmundige Süffigkeit, aber auch die besondere Bekömmlichkeit unseres Hellen.
Starting from an original extract of 12.2% our light ale is brewed with bottom fermenting yeasts to yield a typical bavarian beer spciality containing 5.2% alcohol by volume. Less hops are used than in a pilsner beer, which gives it a mild taste. Our light ale is a delicious, full-bodied beer which is especially palatable.

Erzengel (7278) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2015
Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for this 0,5l bottle. Best before 07.02.2015. Nice worthy beginning. Smooth with not too much sweetness, not much grain. Clean, crisp and smooth. Ideal for a great "Helles". The aftertaste is worthy, smooth with a nice round malty body. Great and ideal. Hints of bitterness in the background, which fit in very well! Easy to drink and still deep. Hints of caramel, nice grains, fresh and thirst-quenching.
For a "Helles", this is amazing!

Hazy yellow gold with a nice thick white lasting sticky lacy frothy head. Smells of malt and faint alcohol and hop. Smooth frothy medium body. So smooth. Taste of malt, toasted malt, pepper and barley. So smooth and soft to drink. Slight hoppiness on the finish. Very very smooth.
