OVERVIEW

Created at Munich’s Spaten brewery in 1895 to compete against popular Pilsner-style beers, Munich Helles Lager is similar to, but has notable differences from, traditional Pilsner. “Helles” means “bright” in German, and this style pours a clear, bright straw yellow to pale-golden color with a creamy white head. Unlike German Pilsners, this German Lager style is more malt-forward in character, exhibiting bready, toasted grain flavors with only a hint of sweetness. Modest Noble hop aroma and flavor may be present in Munich Helles Lager, but bitterness is low, allowing the beer to finish with a clean, malty note and expressing no fruity yeast esters.

Lagers represent some of the most approachable, easy-drinking beer styles available, which contributes to Lager’s consumption edge over ale, despite the fact that ale styles are more numerous and were consumed thousands of years before lagering and cold-aging took hold.
