Nice lager with quality ingredients. A great beach & summer beer. Worth a few bucks more than adjunct lagers

Better then I anticipated pour is bright yellow and has a tall white head. Aroma is unique tons of yeast and lemon peel. A lite beer but great yeast notes and flavor that I just can finger but it is nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear light golden color with a short white head. Notes of Chardonnay and green apple nose. More close to an ale than a lager in the mouthfeel. A lot balance in the flavors. Banana, green apple, and a little cream.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 Blonde, croustillante hyper aqueuse et sans impact houblonné ni de complexité des malts. Rien de très inspirant.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light yellow, small white head. Faint aroma. Grainy, bready flavour. Light/medium body, but quite harmonic. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
