COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Released 5/17/2008. Replaces the original <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/christian-moerlein-select-lager/1396/>Christian Moerlein Select Lager.

You’ve made a discovery – a Golden Helles from the original Lager House build by Christian Moerlein in Cincinnati’s Brewery District over 150 years ago. Today, Moerlein Lager House is brewed to the same standards that declared it the first American Brew to pass the Reinheitsgebot Purity Law. This Munchner-styled Helles is a balanced lager featuring a lightly toasted, yet defined malt character and a touch of hops for a clean finish. Moerlein Helles features a deep golden color, 2-row and Munich malt, Hersbrucker hops, averages 5.2% alcohol by volume with an original gravity of 13 and bitterness units of 19.

Cybercat (4088) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Pours hazy golden with a thin eggshell head. Malty aroma is not strong and has a hint of fruit. Flavor is stronger, crisp and malty with snippets of hops and fruit. Mouthful has firm fizz if only average body. A good party beer.

Secret Krampus beer #2, thanks Peter.

Pours a dark dehydrated urine yellow with tall white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing.

Aroma is mostly corn and sugar. Smells like a malt liquor.

Flavor is more malt liquor. Mostly corn and chemicals but there are also hints of banana and booze. Low bitterness, high crappiness, too sweet.

This should be available in 24oz cans, or on cask at any of these fine establishments:

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle. Pale pour with thin white head. Light hop grass aroma. Thin flavor, there is no adjunct in this but it tastes like extract is used. Non satisfying finish.

Clear, rich gold with a frothy white head. Corn, sweet grain aroma. Honey malt, soft, light....grain/bread taste. Not spectacular, but ok. Rather weak, though.
