Munich-style helles

Löwenbräu Original

Löwenbräu Original, Munich

Helles is German for 'light-coloured' or 'pale'. In other words, helles beer is a pale lager. This brewery has been in business since 1383, and has been served at every Oktoberfest in Munich since 1810.

What a lovely, golden colour. This is such a fragrant beer. Floral and clean character, great foam. Wonderfully sweet in the mouth. Good texture as well. I drank this after the St Peter's, so it came out as especially sweet. Wow, this is a delicious beer.

Pale lager is what it's all about. This is what a true lager should taste like. Delicious.
