Life On Tap Episode #268 - Garden Grove Brewing and Urban Winery Give 'Em Helles

Dan samples a Helles from Garden Grove Brewing and Urban Winery, Give Em Helles, care of @RVABeerMeister earlier during the pandemic.

Garden Grove Brewing and Urban Winery Give Em Helles

STYLE: Helles
INGREDIENTS: German malt and Hallertau hops
ABV: 5.5% (now 5.2%)
IBU: 19 (now 20)
AVAILABILITY: 12-Ounce Can (Limited)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.

Appearance

Dark gold, crystal clear, and a nice, white head.

Aroma

Floral, orange, and honey notes.

Taste

Balance is great with a slight malt edge. Biscuity and bready elements are full in as well.

Mouthfeel

Dry, balanced mouthfeel, with carbonation not too heavy or light.

Overall

All German ingredients do make a difference. I would love to know their water profile/treatment for this. Easy, sessionable, and would love to have this at any outdoor-based event. German bar food…spaetzle, brats, the whole nine for sure.

Thank you so much to Sterling aka @RVABeerMeister for sharing this during the pandy.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
