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!

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.

ThirstyBird (1672) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 25, 2014
Pours a yellow gold with a fizzy white head that leaves the scene. The smell is toasted malt, biscuity, light sweetness. The taste is toasted malt, biscuity, a dry finish. The body is light+ with carbonation that is a bit course. In Germany, this would be middle of the road at best.

Tasting notes of lemon/lime citrus, yeast, floral and herbal notes. Light body with a dry finish. Pretty good for the style.

mcberko (6882) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
12 oz. can, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out light grains and some very subtle herbal notes. Flavour is quite fruity for the style, with some tropical fruits (passionfruit, pineapple and citrus), some light grainy notes, and dry herbal notes. Very refreshing and drinkable. Solid stuff for the style.
