Munchner Helles
This beer should be perceived as having low bitterness. It is a medium-bodied, malt-emphasized beer; with malt character often balanced with low levels of yeast produced sulfur compounds. Certain renditions of this beer style approach a perceivable level of hop flavor and character but it is essentially balanced with malt character to retain its style identity. Malt character is sometimes bread-like yet always reminiscent of freshly and very lightly toasted malted barley. There should not be any caramel character. Color is light straw to golden. Fruity esters and diacetyl should not be perceived. There should be no chill haze.
OG: 1.044-1.050
FG: 1.008-1.012
Alcohol by Weight: 3.8-4.4%
IBU: 18-25
Color SRM: 4-5.5
