Helles / Dortmunder Export
The Munich Helles is a clean, malty, medium yellow to pale gold-colored malt-accentuated German lager with a smooth grainy malty flavor and a soft, dry finish. Subtle spicy, floral, or herbal hops and restrained bitterness help keep the balance malty but not overly sweet. Similar in malt balance and bitterness to Munich Dunkel, but less malty-sweet in nature and pale rather than dark. More body and malt presence than a German Pils, with less hop character throughout. Similar malt profile as a German Exportbier, but with less hops in the balance. The German Exportbier, or Dortmunder Export, is a pale, well-balanced, smooth German lager that is slightly stronger than the average beer with a moderate body and a mild, aromatic hop and malt character. It has less finishing hops and more body than a Pils but is more bitter than a Helles.
