    Munich Helles

    Aroma: Pleasantly grainy-sweet, clean Pils malt aroma dominates. Low to moderately-low spicy noble hop aroma, and a low background note of DMS (from Pils malt). No esters or diacetyl.

     

    Appearance: Medium yellow to pale gold, clear, with a creamy white head.

     

    Flavor: Slightly sweet, malty profile. Grain and Pils malt flavors dominate, with a low to medium-low hop bitterness that supports the malty palate. Low to moderately-low spicy noble hop flavor. Finish and aftertaste remain malty. Clean, no fruity esters, no diacetyl.

     

    Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth maltiness with no trace of astringency.

     

    Overall Impression: Malty but fully attenuated Pils malt showcase.

     

    Comments: Unlike Pilsner but like its cousin, Munich Dunkel, Helles is a malt-accentuated beer that is not overly sweet, but rather focuses on malt flavor with underlying hop bitterness in a supporting role.

     

    History: Created in Munich in 1895 at the Spaten brewery by Gabriel Sedlmayr to compete with Pilsner-style beers.

     

    Ingredients: Moderate carbonate water, Pilsner malt, German noble hop varieties.
