COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of our first anniversary, we give you a new twist on an old favorite with Special Hell: a Helles brewed with 100% Weyermann’s famous floor-malted Bohemian Pilsner Malt from Bamberg Germany, using techniques that are centuries old, to obtain the highest quality malt from the highest quality barley. Decoction mashing allows for a deep malt character and creamy, bready texture that is truly unique. Fermented using Andechs Bavarian lager yeast, and hopped with the use of 3 Noble hops: Hallertau, Hersbrucker, and Tettnang--all imported from Germany. Thanks to those who made the first year great, and those who will make the second year even better--and prefer their lagers crafty!

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2013
On tap in the brewery’s tap room, and dispensed to a house pint glass, showing a bright & clear, deeper golden color than the Heavenly’s, but with less presence to a head that was modest, soft white, and quickly diminishing, and lacing that was light and spotty. A distinct lager scent was present in the aroma, with light yeast, a hint of hop spiciness, and a touch of Pils malt corniness. The taste started with a subtle sweetness, was light to medium in body, and well carbonated to successfully propel the smooth malt and the moderate, lightly lingering, hop bitterness into a finish that was crisp & clean. Fuller in body & character than the Heavenly, but just as sessionable!
