COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & Bottle;
Helles and Pilsner combine – the pale, crisp body of Pils with the gentle hop profile of Helles. It’s pale gold, refined, elegant and dry. Soft biscuity malt, a light lemony, peppery hop character and the sort of bitterness which quenches and never overpowers. Matured for a long time in tank, it’s how a great lager should taste.

3.2
tarkus (2) - USA - MAR 13, 2017 does not count
Self described as a hybrid marriage of Helles and Pilsner, this beer is similar to a German/Bavarian lager although not directly on style. The beer contains a noticeable nose and characteristic flavor of DMS, and lacks somewhat that Germanic malt seriousness that comes only from the painstaking labor of full decoction mashing. Lightly hopped, but adequate. Nonetheless, I’d say this beer is approachable, reasonably flavorful and frankly, better than most of the "stadium beers" that others seem to have compared it to. It is light colored, almost straw-pale (but duh, "helles" means light) as a 100% pilsner malt beer coming in at 4.6% abv. Trying to stay objective here, but it’s not bad.
