[kafka.output] Do I need to give filebeat DESCRIBE access to __consumer_offsets

Hi, we are securing our kafka cluster but are seeing this in logs like every 10 minutes.

[2018-03-19 11:16:32,622] INFO Principal = User:ANONYMOUS is Denied Operation = Describe from host = on resource = Topic:__consumer_offsets (kafka.authorizer.logger)

I have tracked this down this to filebeat so my question is if DESCRIBE access to this topic is required? Everything seems to be working properly but I want to make sure.
