Light Lager

Pale lager, lager “hell”, lager or simply “Helles” (lit. pale) - this type of beer is the third most popular beer in Germany, after Pils and wheat beer. Pale lager from Franconia is mostly brewed in the region of Upper Franconia. Due to its low alcohol content, which averages between 4.5 and 5.6 percent, the Helles is a real thirst quencher. It’s particularly tasty at a drinking temperature between seven and nine degrees Celsius as it then unfolds its full-bodied, quaffable aroma, its subtle hop note and slight sweetness. In Germany, pale lager beer is usually served in the classic glass called “Willibecher” (tallish and semi-slim “Becher” with a slight flare in the most upper portion of the glass), which also applies to the pale lager beers from Franconia.

Why pale beer is called “Helles” and the pale lager is called “Lager Hell”

The reason for the naming is twofold. Firstly, because of its pale golden yellow colour. Before bottling, the beer is filtered thoroughly so that it’s not only pale but also ends up clear in the bottle and glass. As opposed to the Pils, the “Helles” is less hoppy and therefore tastes only slightly bitter. Secondly, the term pale lager, or short “Lager”, derives from the way its produced and - as the name suggests - stored. The pale lager is considered a bottom-fermented “Vollbier” (lit. full beer), which is brewed at a low temperature, and must be stored in a cool place. In the past, the golden yellow drink used to be stored in wooden barrels in large, cool cellars in Franconia. Nowadays modern cooling technology ensures that Lager is available all year round.

Where the pale lager originated

“Helles” was first introduced on the market in 1894 by the SPATEN brewery from Munich at a time when dark beers were predominant and to provide a hoppy counterpart to the Bohemian Pilsner. However, this new beer type was not very well received by the north German beer market. The situation was different in Munich, southern Germany, and Franconia. Here, the light lager beer was the predominant type of beer in the 19th century and still is. As opposed to past times, the light lager beer mostly has an original wort between 10 and 12 percent only nowadays. But perhaps that is precisely the reason why the “Helles” has somehow become a “staple food” in southern Germany. This is exemplified not least by the large selection in our online shop.
