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!

Pours hazy golden with a medium sized white head. Smells lightly grainy with a hint of hops. Taste is subtle, refreshing, hint of citrus. Light-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Cigar City Hotter than Helles Lager finishes with a soft grainy sweetness.

4oz draft pour at Rustico Ballston. This beer poured a totally clear, orange color with a small white foamy head. Aroma was notes of grain, a little bit of yeast, some earthy hop character. Flavor was bready - lots of yeast, malts, grain. Nothing crazy in this one, but a damn tasty Helles - normally I gag a bit on this style as being heavy and too sweet. On the money.

Marheb (3384) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 Blonde, croustillante hyper aqueuse et sans impact houblonné ni de complexité des malts. Rien de très inspirant.

zimbo (772) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
Horrendous artifical confected quality. Why not just take a dump in the brewing kettle and call it ’shit hot’? No no no. Defeats the whole purpose of this type of beer.

Light yellow, small white head. Faint aroma. Grainy, bready flavour. Light/medium body, but quite harmonic. Nice.

Bamsen78 (4529) - 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.

MiP (14519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Can. Mild citric aroma. Cloudy golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is mildly bready, faintly citric. Has a good bready mouthfeel. Low to medium bitterness.

TXBadger (2006) - 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.
