This month’s style is Munich Helles
A beer I know nothing about
Who wants to speak about this beer ?
When the golden and clean lagers of Plzen (Bohemia) became all the rage in the mid-1800’s, München brewers feared that Germans would start drinking the Czech beer vs. their own. Munich Helles Lager was their answer to meet the demand. A bit more malty, they often share the same spicy hop characters of Czech Pils, but are a bit more subdued and in balance with malts. “Helles” is German for “bright.”
Average alcohol by volume (abv) range: 4.0-6.0% [ ? ]
