AKTIENBRAUEREI KAUFBEUREN LEICHTES HELLES

Aktien Leichtes Helles. This is one of Bavaria's hidden gems.

It's alcohol level is, at 5%, a bit higher than most of its Helles ilk, but that doesn't hurt it.

It's as you see here, with a beautiful golden colour and a healthy head, though the latter doesn't survive the journey down the glass.

That barely matters, though, because this is all about the mouthfeel, as much as the taste of the beer.

Yeah, it has a beautiful balance of malt and yeast and even a nice hoppy bitter finish. It also has a touch of sweetness to it, along with some herb that I couldn't quite identify. But it's fabulous.

What's more fabulous is that the lovely buttery mouthfeel and relatively low carbonation that leaves you smiling at its aftertaste for a couple of seconds before your tongue suddenly feels all clean again.

It's one of the best of its kind and would be awesome either for sampling or a session. Grab it if you can.

 

9/10
