While Montana Helles Lager is Bayern Brewing's latest addition to the great lineup of authentic German-style lagers, it is not exactly a new beer style. In Bavaria, you usually order a light beer (the word helles means "light" or "bright" in German) or Dunkel ("dark"); unless you want a wheat (weizen) beer, usually offered regular or dark. Montana Helles Lager is Bayern's version of a Bavarian staple lager beer. Light in color, this lager is decoction-brewed, giving it a full body and cold-fermented for the ultimate in smoothness. Using Hallertauer Magnum as the primary hops and Tettnang for aroma (both imported from Germany), it is well-balanced with a total of 25 IBUs. With a 5.6% ABV, Montana Helles Lager lives up to the quality and deliciousness you expect from Bayern Brewing and is available year-round in Western Montana.
