Utepils Brewing Co Helles
What the brewers say
Brilliant and golden, this lager is the epitome of elegant simplicity and everyday drinkability.
What our panel thought
Attractive, brilliant gold. Classical nose: bread crust and dough in gestalt with light herbal hops. Lime-zest note emerges. Doughy malt flavor leans sweet, roundly married to a soft, spicy bitterness. Light, sweet malt note and low bitterness linger together. Dry, crisp finish. Interesting, well constructed, addictive.
What our editors thought
Right down the middle, the nose blends lightly sweet bready malt with a subdued floral hop note. In the sip, a light brioche note pushes forward as the hops recede, braced by just a touch of pithy bitterness.
