History:
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."

Examples:
Weihenstephan Original
New Belgium Helles
Paulaner Münchner Hell

Tasting Notes:
Extra golden with bright white foamy head. Aromas of fresh bread, touch of herb, with a hint of honey. Goes down with a rich full mouth feel, savory, and smooth. A toasty finish balanced with a touch of sweetness.

Food Pairings:
Helles is a great sandwich or pressed Panini beer. Great with delicate fish- sole, plaice, flounder, and turbot. Great with shellfish- clams, crab, and scallops. Excellent with Sushi. Light pasta dishes work well with oil based or creamed sauces.
