Cruise Control by Two Roads Brewing Co.​ was judged as a Munich Helles (1D). Bready malt dominates the aroma profile with a mild malt sweetness in the background. The color is a pale gold with exceptional clarity. An off-white head lingers on the surface and edges of the glass. The flavor bears the hallmarks of this style with a grainy-malt sweetness that is not overbearing and well balanced with modest hop bitterness. The water even has a mineral quality suggestive of classic Munich brewing water. Modest herbal and earthy hop flavors add an additional quality to the flavor. The carbonation lends a subtle carbonic bite to the medium-low body of this Helles. There is really nothing to complain about as this is a world-class representation of the Munich Helles style from start to finish. I am finding myself recalling fond memories of a liter of Helles in a Munich biergarten. Grab one of these and allow yourself to be transported to München as well!
