Bierstadt Lagerhaus Helles

What the brewers say

“We get that color is an oversimplified way to describe a beer, and a helles can often be dismissed as yellow and fizzy. What it should be is the purest expression of malt in any brewer’s portfolio.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Pleasant spicy noble hops aroma. Pilsner malt and light toast mingle. Not entirely German, but in that ballpark (or Fußballplatz).”

Flavor: “Light spicy hops flavor with a touch of wood and bready malt. There’s a light bitterness, but a touch more would increase the crispness. Nice dry finish.”

Overall: “Nice malt flavors. Clean, dry finish. Great balance of hops bitterness. Extremely drinkable. Light and refreshing but still full of flavor. It’s a winner.”
