IBU: 17 | ABV: 6.9%
This brew is light in color, but not in body or strength. The Maibock style of beer has a significant hop character with a noticeable alcohol around the same as a traditional Bock. Light amber-colored bock crafted with Wyermann malts and yeast from the Andechs Monastery in Germany for a sweet, malty character with a subtle roasted accent. Medium body and low hop bitterness. The Helles is one of our most famous brews.
Try with spicy food, shellfish, or fried food for an altogether arresting experience. Try with these Pugs classics:
Helles Bock is essentially a synonym for Maibock, the Bavarians' strong, golden lager favored during the brief transition between the long Bavarian winters along the northern edge of the Alps and the equally long, hot summers.
