Throwback Thursday: The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery Mecklenburger Helles Lager

This review was originally posted on August 29th, 2016.The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery, one of the oldest in Charlotte, has brought back a beer that they once brewed in their earlier days. This Mecklenburger Helles Lager, 4.9% ABV, is brewing brewed again. The word Helles mean bright, light, or pale in German. Mecklenburger pour a bright pale yellow golden color with a one and a half snow white head that fizzy away rather quick in to small lacing. The aroma is crisp and clean with the faintest hop note and a slightly malted note. Mecklenburger has a refreshingly crisp taste that will take the heat out of a summer day with light malt notes and very faint light hop flavor. This beer is very easy drinking. The mouth feel is light and crisp, with a smooth finish that leads up to an aftertaste that is semi-sweet and cracker like. The flavors on this Helles Lager is not so bold, but they are good. I say this is an A. Mecklenburger is one that you can sit for a few hours and have many. Watch you favorite sport with a few mecklenburgers or call your friends have a party with a case of Mecklenburger. It’s even good after yard work. I highly recommend drinking The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery Mecklenburger Helles Lager. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
