Beer Guide

14. German Light Lager

a) Munich Helles

  • This beer has a relatively low bitterness.
  • It is a medium-bodied malt-emphasized beer, however certain versions can approach a balance of hop character and maltiness.
  • There should not be any caramel character.
  • Color is light straw to golden.
  • Fruity esters and diacetyl should not be perceived.
  • b) Dortmunder/European-Style Export

  • Both starting gravity and medium bitterness are somewhat higher than a Muenchner helles.
  • Hop flavor and aroma are perceptible, but low.
  • The color of this style may be slightly darker, and the body will be more full, but still medium-bodied.
  • Fruity esters, chill haze and diacetyl should not be perceived.
