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!

Thanks to tastybeer for giving me a new rate from the south. This is a prototypical lawnmower beer made better by the packaging. Change the name on the label and it would still be just as good. Buy one the next time you are in Florida and find out yourself.

Aroma / Appearance - A golden carbonated base bubbles like a good fresh cola. Light grains, rye toast, and wheat hang in the air. This is smooth and gentle like an ideal lawnmower beer.

Flavor / Palate - The creamy mouthfeel is bright with life. Golden crisps, lemon extract, and wheat carry into a dry bitter finish. The drinkable factor of this would make it trivial to knock back at least three or four after a day’s work in the yard. Some breweries can take a note from the success of lighter styles like this.

smaynard6000 (642) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz can. Pours a golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is mostly grain. Crisp somewhat sweet lager with malted grain notes. Light bodied and easy to drink. Exactly as advertised- a quaffable lager for the hot summer season, not much in the way of complexity here.

Sample from 355 ml. can. Slightly hazy golden colour with a small, white head. Sweet aroma with floral and earthy hops, pale malts and grasses. Taste is light sweet. Light to medium body, thinner texture. Short, light bitter finish. Nice Helles, albeit there are better German versions around.
