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!

Bamsen78 (5010) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Can. Pours clear pale straw with airy white head. Clear aroma of skunk and yeast, with notes of hops. Refreshing, citric flavour, with notes of malt and hops. Bitter aftertaste. Easily drinkable, butbquite well balanced. It is clear right from the first sip that it is not a European Helles but it is OK nonetheless.

TXBadger (2496) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal and bread on the nose, follow onto the palate. Light body on this, easy to drink. Pretty straight forward, good for a hot day.

Bacterial (2811) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pour from a can. Yellow. White head, which disappeared quickly. A touch of corn in the nose. Tastes like a lager meant for those people that buy beer from the big three. Decent, but an odd aftertaste.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2014
12oz can, thanks to Mike L. Canned on 12/18/2013. Mostly clear golden color. Made slightly hazy with lots of particles in the body. Thin off-white head. Couple loose bits and short ropes of lace. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Medium body. Lightly slick. Good bready malt, light bit of citrus hop. Moderate sweet taste. Very lightly peppery. A solid, easy-drinking helles.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2014
What really stands out aboiut this beer is the thick sticky mouthfeel. IT definitely goes down smooth, sweet corn and a little sharpenss from the hops. But it is a really full bodied light helles, too.
