Helles (pronounced “HELL-us”) is a style of pale bottom fermented beer from Southern Germany that originally was a reaction to the popularity of the pilsner. However, unlike its now commonly bastardised cousin, Helles Focuses on a richness of favour from a malt forward approach resulting in a highly quaffable tasty golden beer.
A straw-coloured bitter which initially seems sweet, but a complex dry, hoppy taste soon predominates.
Probably the best example of the traditional Black Country style of bitter. No better partner to a lunchtime snack!
This dry-hopped pale ale is deliciously refreshing. The nose has hints of pine and honey. Packed full of flavour from citrus-heavy hops with a twist of fresh lime to create a crisp, zesty beer. We serve it cold from the fridge in a straight sided half pint glass and enjoy it on its own, with a spicy Thai curry or a well-stacked chicken burger.
