Weltenburger Urtyp Helles

While we were going on the river boat to the Weltenburger Kloster brewery.  I decided to get a preview of their beers by ordering a one of their Urtyp HellesHelles if you remember is the Bavarian everyday beer, only recently being passed by weissbier as the most popular beer.   I was ultra excited for my first taste of a Weltenburger beer since everyone had been telling me how good they were.

As you can see this beer poured a dazzling pale gold.  You can clearly see the bench on the other side of the table.  By the time the waitress got the beer to me the head had mostly dissipated.  Despite the lightness of the color this beer had an aroma that assaulted the senses, the fresh cut hay that had been rained on almost like the scent of silage for those of you who know what that is.  The taste was crisp slightly hoppy with that fresh cut grass flavor assaulting the palate.  This beer was not bitter at all, just a full bodied and flavored beer that was a great way to get introduced to the Weltenburger beers.
