Why so punny? “Helles” is German for “light colored.” Hotter Than Helles is more than just a (very) silly pun; it perfectly reflects the nature of this beer. A lager meant to be consumed when it’s truly hotter than helles outside. So there are no peppers or spices in this beer!

Can, thanks Brian! Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is hops, malt, and grain. Flavor is malt, yeast, and hops. Medium body, and a longer finish than expected. This is nice and refreshing, wish it was available locally.

Thanks for muling it up Ron! Not too bad for a lager. Thirst quenching brew for a blazing hot day.

Slightly hazy light golden color with a head that quickly drops to the rim, only a couple of dots of lace. Taste is wheat and light spices (but not coriander) that add a little honey and brown grass through the palate. Bittering is minimal. Light and quite drinkable.

Can (12 oz). From Chris, thanks! Clear yellow with a huge frothy white head and nice lacing. Aroma of cereals, light spices, bread-like notes and light honey. Taste is of cereals, light spices (more than in aroma) and light honeyed malt. Crisp and clean. Light body. Good carbonation. Interesting Helles. Refreshing and drinkable.

Drinking it from a can on the beach. A nice change from other typical beach beers. I taste the hops, but not in an unpleasant way for a hot summer day. Not too bad.

Phish Lot Beer #3. Pours a lovely pale pear color. Scent is of lemons and grain. Carbonated well. This beer seems similar to a lager only with a slightly maltier finish. Enjoyable on a hot afternoon in an amphitheater parking lot. Can - Grassroots Natural Market - Jacksonville, FL

Can. 06/13/13. Thin white head, big bubbles dissipates fast. CO2 rises at a lively rate. Vibrant yellow body, slight haze. Lemon, sweet pils, low doughy undertone. Grainy, lively CO2, dry backend, lingers with a faint sweetness. Hint of noble hops (earthy) flavors stay on palate. Easy to drink, flavor is pronounced for style, yet still on the drinkability side.
