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!

Pours yellow with a creamy white head. Grainy aroma with a little hoppiness. The flavor is crisp and clean with a pils malt profile and a subltle hop spiciness. Smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Nice refreshing lager.

weihenweizen (3083) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2013
Chilled 12 oz. aluminum can brought to the tasting by Josh, poured into a weizen glass. Pours slightly hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is nice grain, but the taste is really grainy. This was the kick off for the tasting and probably should have rated lower because the taste is bland, but the aroma I thought was good.

JStax (5039) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2013
12 ounce can. Pours a pale gold with no head. Smells grainy and soapy. The taste is a continuation of the soap, but moves on to a bready finish. Very light.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Can from Funky Buddha in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into a snifter. A beautiful yellow, light gold color with a thick white head. Good lace. The nose is a somewhat floral, citrus, maltiness with a slight bread feature. The taste was surprisingly heavier than expected. The full body (for the style) was malty, floral, citrus and bread. It finished slightly bitter. Certainly a good beer for hot, sunny South Florida Summers.

This one poured a clear bright yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was light grass, some earth, light grain, adn cracker. Flavor was mainly cracker, light dough and refreshing german hops. Very nice for the style.

pineypower (3049) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Can from Total Wine Tampa. Pours a well carbonated golden color with a small lively head. Aroma is of cereal malts, cracker, biscuit and light grassy bitterness. Taste is slightly watery, lots of sweet cereal malts, grain, bread crusts, mild bitterness in there also. Definitely a good gateway craft.
