Bomber Brewing Helles & Gretel Lager Review
The Bomber Brewing Company has brewed up a traditional Helles Lager which is called the Helles & Gretel. This beer is the official beer of “An East Van Panto”, a local play of the classic story Hansel and Gretel. From the bomber bottle the beer pours as a golden colour topped with one finger of lacing head. From the beer comes an aroma of grass, malt, citrus and a classic, German style hop tone. Tasting the beer a fairly light body gives way to the citrus-malt notes along side a pleasant mid-hop bitterness. The finish is light but a slight lingering of hop bitterness leaves the palate asking for more. Follow the trail of crumbs to your local liquor store and pick up a bottle of this delicious Lager before it is too late.
