Stöhrs Helles

Adler-Bräu Stettfelder Hell is a typical malty Helles with a clean finish. It's well-made but not their best beer by a long shot.

Raab Helles

Raab Helles is an effervescent example of the style with balanced grainy palate and a clean semi-dry, semi-bitter finish.

Düll Krautheimer Helles Lagerbier

Düll Krautheimer Helles Lagerbier is a balanced malty example of the style with their signature white pepper in both the nose and palate but it blends in better in this lighter simpler beer than some of their heavier entries.

Bruderherz Mia Lager

Bruderherz Mia Lager is an unfiltered Craft Beer take on a traditional Helles, with fair hopping and a lingering semi-dry, semi-bitter finish.

Wettelsheimer Hell on tap

Wettelsheimer Hell is a lovely balanced Helles with malty/grainy palate and a clean, semi-dry finish.


Forstquell-Gold is a refreshingly dry fruity unfiltered Helles with a clean, semi-dry semi-bitter finish that just says more.

Haubrauerei Altstadt's Sommerbier is their summer Craft Beer offering with a citrusy palate and lingering semi-dry, semi-bitter finish.

Hausbrauerei Altstadthof Das Helle/Kellerbier

Haubrauerei Altstadt's Kellerbier is likely their former Das Helle renamed to cash in on the new popularity of Kellerbiers but it's a nice enough one with a grainy element and a semi-dry, semi-bitter finish.

BroBier Helles on tap

BroBier Helles is quite hoppy and dry for the style but will appeal to Craft Beer enthusiasts seeking out something outside the traditional in Bamberg.

Fischer (Wieseth) Das Helle on tap

Fischer Das Helle is a gorgeous beer with a balanced palate featuring more hops than most in the style. The semi-dry, semi-bitter finish is moreish. On tap at Gasthaus Sindel Buckel in Feuchtwangen.
