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!

thegreenrooster (4031) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a nice biscuit/bready malt with some grass. Flavor is a little on the sweeter side. Thick sweet malts to start then it almost redeems it self with a nice a nice citrusy hop. It’s not bad and I kinda liked it the more I had, it was just a bit so sweet for the style.

Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pretty good beer. Poured at a good temperature with a nice size, foamy, off-white head that didn't last and no lace. Color is a slightly hazy yellow amber. Aroma is a bit faint, but has malt, hop,grain, spice. Flavor's like nose, carbonic tang in front, then malt, hop, hint of sweet. Body is good, carbonation a tad sharp. Finish is like flavor, a little short, and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. A hazy, yellow-golden beer with a minimal-sized off-white head. Grassy, fruity nose with some notes of grainy malts. It’s medium bodied, semi-dry and with a soft carbonation. A bit too sweet I think, but with an appropriate level of fruityness and malts. Some bitterness in the far back. Citrus too, all the way, also in the aroma. Well, it’s drinkable and sort of quenching, but it’s too sweet I think. 140111

Light golden, foamy head. Crisp hop nose is lightly floral. Malts comes to the fore in the flavor, grainy, a touch tart/sourish at the finish with a notable lack of hops at the end. I feel like it is not as dry as I want it. Still a decent lager. Not sure why they feel the need to emphasize that there are no peppers or spices in the beer. I didn’t expect there to be.
