Helles Lager Bier

Robinsons

4.6% abv

Our Helles is triple hopped; meaning the hops are added in three stages. We begin with a specially selected premium European lager yeast and a mix of classic Bavarian Noble, Hallertau and Mittelfruh hops. We throw in some Perle for a little bittering, then Tettnang and Hersbrucker hops to add character. During fermentation, we add some Saaz for an earthy and floral hint. Finally, the Mandarina Bavaria hop is added to give an extra subtle kick of lemon complexity to the taste and aroma. Sweetness balanced with a light hop bitterness, bright and effervescent, clean and crisp, it’s the epitome of a thirst-quenching lager bier. Expertly crafted, effortlessly smooth.
