Ninkasi Helles Belles (355ml Bottle)
Helles Belles is a traditional German-style lager brewed with premium pilsner malt and bittered with Hallertau hops. Originally brewed for the Oregon Brewers Festival, Helles (meaning light) is straw yellow in color, bright, and crisp. So for those about to rock, Ninkasi proudly presents Helles Belles!
These two styles are closely related, the former hailing from Dortmund and the latter from Bavaria. Both are slightly strong (5.0-5.6%), malt-accented pale lagers. The cookie-like or bready maltiness should be very much in evidence in a traditional example. These beers are clean and easy to drink in quantity. Some Dortmunders made in Denmark and the Netherlands are stronger.
