4.6% Zwickel/Keller/Landbier | 178 Ratings |
Helmuth is a beer inspired by the German Kellerbier (or Zwickel as they are also known). It is a unfiltered lager, usually served very fresh and thus less clean and bitter than normal German pilsner or Helles but with more body, fruitiness and complexity making it a most satisfying beer. It was decided that the beer needed to have a twist distinguishing it from its German cousins so we used the rarely used American Athanum hop. The beer is being brewed as a collaboration project between Ugly Duck Brewing and Beerhere on initiative of the Finnish beer geek and importer Juha Ikonen from the famous Finnish pub Pikkulinto.
