Beer #2 (which is currently making me very sleepy) was the Hacker-Pschorr Munich Helles Lager. When most people think "Hacker-Pschorr", they think Weisse. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that either. They make a great weisse beer
. Hacker-Pschorr has a lot of other varieties available, but they will require a bit of looking in order to find them. The Munich Helles Lager is one of those harder to find brews. It has an incredibly vibrant golden hue. It's a beautiful beer color. There isn't much of an aroma aside from a mild, usual "brewed" smell. It's flavor is something like a mixture of sweetness and lightly yeasty "breadiness" (I know that's not a word, but that's the best way to describe it). It's not exactly a light beer, but I wouldn't say it's even a medium as far as body. It's something that even a passive beer drinker would have no problem enjoying. The finish is the most interesting part. The very light hoppy flavor is mild enough that it doesn't hit you as a bitter bite. It's almost fruity. I'd almost go as far as saying that it's got an apple cider-like tang to it. The overall taste is sweet though. The Munich Helles Lager is one of those rare beers that provides a natural sweetness without overpowering you with sugary, gut-rot inducing flavoring. It's another great member of the Hacker-Pschorr family.
