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!

Aroma is wheaty and full, but not stale. Has a nice sweetness. Color is yellow with a sizable head consisting of white large bubbles. Taste is wheat and bitter, with some light doughyness. Has a little sour edge too. Not too watery and not too thick in the palate, but maybe a little too filling - perhaps too much so to enjoy as a light summer beer.

Ferris (6216) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2015
Draft - Light sweet grains. Clear gold with a decent white head. Sweet grains with the slightest heat. Not enough in my opinion.

hotstuff (4341) - Indiana, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Rated on 5-03-2013 (Can) When poured, this beer has a large very fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, pale yellow transparent body, slow rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is bready, malt, crisp, hops, and spicy. The flavor is semi-sweet, bready, malt, and light spice. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a light-medium bodied beer. This is a quaffable session beer.

HighlanderOne (1037) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Poured from can. Sweet bread aroma. Golden with barely any head. Tasting sweet malt / honey balanced with dry lager hops. Clean, dry feel. Nice beer. Will have to try on a hot day.

Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a cloudy yellow orange color with a head that fades. Slightly hot flavor toward the end. Interesting

A very light style done exceptionally well. Very delicate. No hops. Another winner from Cigar City.

nasmith003 (130) - Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Lack of aroma (could be the glass) with a pale yellow color. Balanced malt and hops give way to a hop bite reminiscent of a Czech pilsner. Finishes clean.

Listigovers (385) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Nice pour and aroma, light berry scent over lagery grains. Pours with a puffy white head and a clear rich gold. Light to medium bodied, lightly sparkling character, grainy flavour, not too light, refreshing.

bellco33 (401) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Poured from can into pint glass: Pours golden with a one finger white head. Aroma is corn, champagne, grass. Taste is more of the same with a nice sweetness to be expected with this beer, and a little bitter finish on the back end. Light body, medium carbonation, nice beer for it’s style.
