Foam / Aroma

With its delectably aromatic bouquet and finely latticed foam, one is hardly aware that the beer does not contain alcohol.

Flavor / Color

Along with its sunny gold disposition, its pleasantly aromatic hop note, light bitterness and drinkability make this beer the perfect refreshment on a hot day.

Remarks

Particularly at the beer garden or on a hot summer’s day at the lake, our non-alcoholic Original Helles pairs well with simple meals or a hearty salad – a refreshing alternative anytime. The fermentation process is not halted early, but rather the beer is allowed to fully mature. Only afterwards is the alcohol removed by means of a process developed with the Technical University of Munich-Weihenstephan, the same one used for our non-alcoholic wheat beer.
