From our Brewmaster, Charles: “Light and delicate, this traditional Munich style lager goes down smooth and easy. A bit less hoppy than a pilsner, this beer is brewed with Pilsen, and Munich malts, hopped only with Hersbrucker hops.”
By the numbers:
- 13 IBU’s
- 5% ABV
What to expect:
You’ll love how easy our High Point Helles is to drink and enjoy. It’s a well-balanced lager that’s not too hoppy or malty, but has a surprisingly complex overlay of flavors that belies its “middle-of-the-road” first impression. The Munich-style Helles lager is hugely popular in Germany, but it’s poised for an explosion of popularity in the U.S. too.

Some history to sip on: Helles is a traditional German pale lager beer, produced chiefly in Southern Germany, particularly Munich. Helles-style beers typically are full-bodied, mildly sweet, and light-colored, with low bitterness. The beer is clear due to filtration prior to bottling, although some restaurants and breweries do offer an unfiltered version. Munich-style Helles is a yellow beer brewed with bottom-fermenting yeast, bitter hops, and comes in between 4.5 and 6% alcohol by volume. In regions outside of Southern Germany, Helles is regaining popularity, particularly Berlin, where the beer’s traditional image has become trendy. (via Wikipedia)
