Golden, medium body, bready, smoky
Helles Munchener Lager is the golden everyday drinking beer in Munich. Less hop flavor & bitterness than Pilsner the main highlight of Helles is its bready, malty character. Chuckanut and Redhook brewers collaborated to create a smoky style Helles to capture the unique smoky flavors of the Rauch lager with the gentle easy going nature of the Helles. Deep malty flavor spiked with mild smoky overtones make this an unusual and satisfying beer!
