A traditional German style Helles Lager, using traditional Bavarian lager yeast, continental Pilsner and Munich Malt with a light peppering if spicy, floral and herbal German noble hops. The aroma is lightly floral and herbal with a subtle compliment of bready, sweet malt. The taste is light straw with a stiff white rocky foam.
This Irish craft beer, made with Wicklow water, is a superb example of what Irish brewers are now capable of achieving. This beer proves how wonderful a lager can taste when hand crafted and slowly matured before packaging….the way traditional German lagers are brewed.
