I'm blanking on ideas that aren't helles. I have some Omega Bayern I need to revive.

Pils?

Vienna lager?

Other ideas?

is mex lager not vienna lager?

 

maybe i could make a slightly bigger pils but take it off track a little with a mix of vienna and pils.  I also have caramunich but that would start putting me into vienna lager territory I think.

 

maybe a little bit of carapils copper in there too.  might be a nice background note.

Mex lager is not generally a Vienna.  Why not a German pils?  I love the crispness for summer.

I was thinking that but then again I already have a helles which isn't dramatically different.  maybe I should just do it though.

Boy, to me they're a lot different.  A helles is sweet and malty.  A G. pils is light and crisp.

while the ingredients do vary slightly it's mostly the hopping that is different to me.  both are pretty light and refreshing.

 

my typical pils is often just pils and then pretty heavily hopped.

 

my helles is mostly pils with a little bit of munich and not as heavily hopped (although I tend to take it a little too far :lol:)

I don't know the yeast they may use but I've always liked Sam Adam's Summer beer which I've seen out this past weekend. I'd imagine the Bayern would work well in something like that. I pick up a hint of citrus in it but nothing that jumps to the foreground. Great beer.

Summer Ale?

"Samuel AdamsĀ® Summer Ale is an American wheat ale. This summer seasonal uses malted wheat, lemon zest and Grains of Paradise, a rare pepper from Africa first used as a brewing spice in the 13th century, to create a crisp taste, spicy flavor and medium body."

Sounds perfect then. I've never been particularly fond of wheat beers but that one gets me.
