Munich Helles Lager
Pouring a straw yellow to pale gold, this style is a bit more malty in flavor and aroma, with bready, biscuity, and toasted flavors dominate. Noble hop aromas and flavors may be present, but the bitterness is kept fairly low, to finish very clean and malty. No fruity yeast esters.
Best served cool, 46-54 degrees, and in a pilsner glass, stange, or champagne flute.
Pours a pale golden straw color with a fluffy bright white head. Aromas of cooking bacon, fresh baked French bread a hint of honey and fresh cut grass. Pilsner Malt and 40% Beechwood Smoked Malt from Germany builds the foundation of this simple recipe with complex flavors.
