COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

12 oz can...Beautiful hazy lemon color along with doughy lemon flavors and a clean dry finish...this Florida lager beats the Helles out of its German counterparts.

Draft. Pours golden/orange with pillowy head, maintains good lacing. Grass and lemon notes, with a bit of grain. Has an unpleasant and distinctly metallic flavor... imagine if I had this again with no metallic flavor I would really like it.

From a 12 oz can at Avon NC. Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with a sight white head. Aroma of bread dough and lemon follow through to the flavor. Some biscuit notes in there as well. Cirsp clean finish with just a hint of tartness.

Can from GOT, shared with Stanley Eisen. Pours a nice cheddar orange with a nose of doughy malt and light floral hops. Flavor Is a cascade of biscuits and grassy hops in a pile of light lemon water. Decent mouthfeel. Love the name of this beer.

bubbleflubber (2015) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2013
On tap at the Winter Warmer 2012, this pours golden with a wispy head that leaves similar lace. The nose is of grains and light vegetal notes. Flavors are substantial, of grains, lemons and mixed citrus with a clean finish. Substantial yet not cloying nor heavy. Really great Helles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Floback (539) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Sixer from Total Wine. Pours golden under a thumbnail of pillowy white head with good retention. Aroma of soapy yeast. Grains, crisp green apple, subtle banana, aftertaste of biscuit. High carbonation and light body. Refreshing, easy drinking brew.

Sammy (9450) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
Enjoyed at the CC Tasting Room. Light yellow with a large head. Tatsy, both sweet and sour. Like a dirty blonde, with a chile pepper finish. OK drinkability.

arkurzynski (1771) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Can thanks to beernads. Hazy yellow pour. Sweet aroma of lemon citrus, graham cracker, wet pale malt, and hay. Flavor is relatively sweet cracker malt and lemon drops and mild bitterness. Actually very drinkable and decent, but a little sweet.
