Allgäuer Hüttenbier – helles from Bavaria


Today I taste the Bavarian Helles from the private brewery in the foothills of the Alps. Beer is called Allgäuer Hüttenbier.

 

Beer for today tasting I received as a gift, for which I thank and I would recommend for the future 🙂

 

The brewery, which brewed that Helles is named Privatbrauerei Höss der Hirschbräu.
The plant is located in Sonthofen – picturesque town in Bavaria, at the foot of the Alps.

The origins of the brewery dates back to 1657, while in 1859 it is bought by Josef Anton Höss and to this day remains as a private family-owned.

All beers are brewed naturally maintaining the German Beer Purity Law – Reinheitsgebot.
Their dortmunder Hirsch-Gold won the Gold at the World Beer Cups in 2014.

Representative of the same style (helles, dortmunder) is today’s guest on the blog – Allgäuer Hüttenbier.

Allgäuer Hüttenbier is a typical representative of the style helles, but I must admit that it is very tasty.
Malty aroma with a hint of hops.
In taste the sweetness of malt, caramel and honey, hoppy accent. Moderate bitterness and malty finish with a touch of hops.
The beer is very refreshing, extremely drinkable and tasty.
Strangely, even though I’m not a big fan of traditional light, pale lagers, this specialty quickly disappeared and left a good memory.
