Tucher Helles Hefeweizen

Type: pale wheat beer
Origin: Nurnburg, Germany
Price: $2.29 per 0.5 L

Ah, feels good to be back. Many of you have probably noticed I haven't posted for a month because I have been out of town quite a bit. I have a decent stockpile of scheduled posts coming up, so you can stop holding your breath (or balls, whatever tickles your fancy). I bought a few Tucher's at BevMo! over a month ago, and I am just now popping the helles hefe open. The website for this is the first to talk about the health benefits of a specific beer, saying that this is "A traditional, high fermented Bavarian yeast beer specialty with an accentuated wheat beer flavour and high vitamin B contents." The rest of their description is "Natural yeast cloudiness due to top fermentation. A sparkling refreshing and thirstquenching product!" I love how simple they are, because its only $2.29, so what the fuck do you honestly expect, a douchey BeerAdvocate review? With those prices, they can only afford a webmaster that was self taught through Angelfire web-templates. Just buy the damn beer. The beer is pretty decent. It is as if they took a cheap lager (say Heineken or maybe slightly lighter Amstel Light) and mixed it with a full flavored hefeweizen (say Franzikaner). Adjust the ratio to 75% Heineken and 25% Franz, and this is the bastard child that arrives.
