All about helles lager

What is a helles lager?

Helles lager is a German-style lager with malt accents that balance the sweetness of the malt with a bit of bitterness. “Helles,” is german for “bright,” hence the name of this type of lager. It was originally brewed around Munich in the late 19th century in an effort to compete with popular Czech pilsners of the time. It's a bit of a rounder bodied lager then other light lagers, and has a touch of sweetness that tends to balance out the spicy German hop flavor.

How to serve

Helles lagers pair well with many foods, as they are very versatile beers. However, this style beer was made to be a refreshment, making it ideal on hot days. These beers have a relatively low ABV, making them the perfect “lawnmower” beer. Helles lagers have a soft and bready character, making them great compliments to lighter dishes like salads and shellfish.
