Augustiner Lagerbier Hell is a refreshing long stored beer that’s mild, sparkling and relatively light. This classic Bavarian lager has fresh and fruity lemon notes giving it a pleasing citrusy flavour. Like most German beers, it’s best served cold and is brewed in accordance with the German purity laws, meaning it’s been made with just water, barley and hops. A long secondary fermentation makes for a lightly hoppy finish and an overall crisp, smooth flavour.
Helles or Hell beer is a type of German pale lager that is typically produced in the south of Germany. The word “hell” in German can be translated as bright, light or pale in English. These beers are usually full-bodied, and light in colour. They are slightly sweet with a low level of bitterness when compared to other beers. A filtering process that happens before bottling means that these beers are usually clear, although some establishments have been known to serve unfiltered versions.
