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.
