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!

Session lager. Largely inoffensive in taste, a good beer perhaps to keep around when non-beer geek friends are over. Fairly flavorful for what it is, and I’m picking up a whiff of spice over what is otherwise all malt. However, my guess is CC keeps this around to have a full line of beers, not so much to appeal to aficionados. For what it aspires to be, tho, it’s solid.

Nice yellow pour. Smells like honey and lemons. Taste is sweet and grassy. Nice sweet honey finish.

12oz can, yellow & red. Pours yellow color, white foam. Aroma of hay\straw, pale malts. Medium dryness. Rich flavor of barley malt. Very well balanced. Straw character, mild hops. So far, pairs well with sushi. (3716)

Very inoffensive brew, which is exactly what you want on a hot summer day. Think of a generic macro brew without the off flavors, and maybe slightly less carbonation.

12 ounce can. Thanks Sean! Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and citrus. Taste is malt, grain, lemon, and a bit of grass. Nice!

12 oz can. Pours a hazy straw color with a thin white ring. Sweet malty aroma with cereal and grains. Taste at first is of sweet malts and cereal and then there is a nice spicy tingle of hops. Good carbonation. A little thin. Pretty refreshing. Should be awesome for those hotter than hell summer days that are coming.

Very pale yellow color with a small white rim of foam for a head. Nose of old lemon rinds. Some cracker and English muffin notes, with water, lemon rind and a faint tangy orange flavor. Tastes like beer...

Née le 7 mars 2013, cette bière jaune et voilée montre une tête blanche légèrement fuyante. Son nez, sous cette chaleur écrasante, me semble approprié. Il y a des notes légèrement citronnées, des notes de grains frais et de bons craquelins qui se mêlent à l’air salin de la place. Sur les papilles, la bière se montre agréable avec ses malts pâles et ses notes houblonnées faiblement mordantes mais bien vivantes. Légère sur le palais, cette bière me semble justement nerveuse. La finale est très intéressante mais courte sur des notes sèches et épicées. Une lager définitivement fraîche qui montre un profil malté adorable.
