In my opinion there should be no beer category called “light”! The word implies nothing of value in either taste or drinking pleasure. Letzter Wunsch Helles however bursts with flavour!
In medieval times small beer or table beer was the everyday quencher, drank throughout the day while working the in the fields and at the supper table, instead of water. Even the children in the orphanages were allowed a pint each of small beer per day to supplement their diet because of it’s obvious nutritional value.
The beers must have been tasty in those days because the most frequent “Letzter Wunsch” (Last Wish) if you were to be sent to loose your head on the chopping block, was a large mug of BEER!
Letzter Wunsch is mashed, boiled, fermented, cold matured, filtered and packed as a full fledged beer of only 2.5% ABV. At no stage is the final beer diluted with water to a lower alcohol percentage, as is the commercial practise when producing (not brewing!) light beers. Pure barley malt, a hefty dose of Crystal malt for caramel sweetness, much more than a kiss of three hop varieties, yeast and soft water from Draymans own borehole supply, makes up the unique recipe in the style of a Munich Helles.
Letzter Wunsch is a beer ”fully brewed” to only 2.5% ABV, without any water dilution as is the commercial practise for light beers. It reflects the true art in German brewing tradition of creating malty, hoppy beers, of full flavour, without the headache of high alcohol.
