Pilsner may be better known, but the everyday beer of Bavaria is pilsner's cousin, Hellesbier. The German word "hell" seems to evoke perdition, but simply means "pale". The Helles style is a golden all-malt lager that emphasizes malt character over hop bitterness and aroma. Brooklyner Keller Helles is truly old-school; the word "keller" means "cellar" and denotes a beer that is unfiltered and super-fresh. Our brewmaster has spent many fine afternoons drinking Hellesbier in Munich's beer gardens and decided to bring you an authentic flavor that's rarely seen in the United States. Fermented and then lagered for weeks at very cold temperatures, Keller Helles has a pale gold color, a haze of German lager yeast, a fresh malty/yeasty aroma, a lilt of floral hops and a dry clean finish. It tastes like a summer day, and a very nice one at that. It's great with fresh goat cheeses, seafood, and just about anything that tastes good at a barbecue.

    On draft at the Half Moon. Pour was clear golden color, ample carabonation bubbles, good initial thick head, nice rings of lacing. The aroma was quite nice, grainy, pilsy malts, sweet grains, dry smell from the carbonation. The flavor followed suit, a malty sweet pils base, touch of grassy hops although not quite firm enough (more malty than a pilsner or even a traditional helles), faintly sweet, finishing clean. A touch more hops, and we've got ourselves something quite nice going on here! Pretty solid within its class, though!
