DESCRIPTION

A golden beer with honey-like malt tones and an herbal finish.

This brilliant, golden beer is light and easy drinking while still keeping the flavor dialed all the way up.  Soft white bread tones and honey-like malt tones with an herbal, floral hop profile that keeps the beer balanced and crisp. 

Our Fall Colors series is something we wanted to put together to pay to honor the changing fall weather, and colors.  Beer and Fall seem to be inextricably linked. Be it the beginning of the traditional brewing season, the harvest, colors of leaves, and the way a quality beer looks in your glass.  So sit down and enjoy that refreshing crispness in the air, and appreciate the Fall Colors.

Crisp and loaded with flavor, this beer can be paired with a vast array of dishes and cuisine. For a more traditional main course, pair with Pork Schnitzel and German potato salad. To spice things up, a Bolivian dish called Aji de Fideos featuring pasta, spicy ground beef, potatoes, carrots, peas, and locoto chilies will give you an eye-opening experience. Cheese pairing, you can’t miss with a 3-month-old Manchego or a Lamb Chopper. Dessert pairings, aim for creme brulee, or berry cobbler. 

 

STYLE NOTES

Munich Helles

Moderately malty start with the suggestion of sweetness, moderate grainy-sweet malt flavor with a soft, rounded palate impression, supported by a low to medium-low hop bitterness. The finish is soft and dry, not crisp and biting. Low to moderately-low spicy, floral or herbal hop flavor. The malt dominates the hops in the palate, finish, and aftertaste, but the hops should be noticeable. There should not be any residual sweetness, simply the impression of maltiness with restrained bitterness. Very fresh examples will seem sweeter due to the fresh, rich malt character that can fade with time. Clean fermentation profile.
