Was macht einen Klassiker aus? Ist es, wie in der Literatur, seine zeitlose Bedeutung? Design gepaart mit vollendeter Technologie wie im Autobau? Oder Emotionen wie im Radsport? Was macht das Helle zu unserem Klassiker? Ist es seine milde, nicht zu grosse, rasch abklingende Bittere? Ist es die Ausgewogenheit von vier verschiedenen, perfekt aufeinander abgestimmten Malzsorten? Ist es die in der Hopfenblume begründete unvergängliche Eleganz? Ist es seine Vollmundigkeit oder doch eher der Geschmack nach feinstem Aromahopfen? Die Freunde – und auffallend vielen Freundinnen – des Hellen streiten sich noch heute über den bevorzugten Charakterzug des Bieres. Einigkeit herrscht indessen in einem Punkt: Das Burgdorfer Helle regt zum Weitertrinken an… Name: Helles Brauart: Untergärig Stammwürze: 12,0 % Alkoholgehalt: 4,9 % vol Zutaten: Wasser, Gerstenmalz, Hopfen, Hefe Saison: Ganzjährig
