Farm Table: Helles

Farm Table Series are sessionable beers inspired by tradition and brewed true to a classic style. Farm Table Helles is a brilliant straw-coloured blond lager. A bona fide Bavarian beer garden classic, the Helles style balances a mildly bready, malt-accented flavour with subtle and delicate hops that linger to enjoy.

History & Style

First brewed in the late 1800s, Helles lager was Munich’s answer to the widespread popularity of the Bohemian pilsner. It shares similarities with a pilsner, but dials back the hops in favour of a slight lean toward more malt flavour and mouthfeel.

Tasting Notes

Farm Table Helles pours brilliantly clear straw blond with white foam. Pleasantly mild bread and malt aromas are followed by similar fresh-bread and malt flavours. The finish is clean and satisfying.

Food Pairings

Helles-brined fried chicken, classic fish n’ chips, German-style sausages (such as Bratwurst or Weisswurst) with sharp mustard, soft cheeses like Havarti, fresh mozzarella & curds.
