Heller High Water is a Pale (hell) straw coloured Bavarian Lager. Brewed with German malts, German noble hops and a genuine Munich yeast. High Water is a classic example of the session beers enjoyed in Bavarian beer gardens. Our seasonal offering has a clean malt flavour with a slight hop presence, perfectly balanced for Summer quaffing. Come Heller High Water, you will enjoy this beer. The Story While paddling down the Ottawa River (aka the Kichesippi), you will enter into a set of rapids know as Lower McCoy’s close to the town of Beachburg. Just to the right of the rapids is a metal ruler bolted to a large rock that displays to paddlers whether they are about to experience High Water or not.

Liquide doré pâle, avec une mousse blanche cotonneuse à grosses bulles, très mince. Le nez est presque purement de céréales blondes ce qui suppose un produit bien fait pour ce style. La bouche est sèche, un peu plus sucrée que prévue, mais les céréales explosent, des notes terreuses, un peu épicées, un peu de pain, le tout sans subtilité mais assemblé de façon irréprochable. Haute buvabilité il va sans dire. Très bien faite pour ce style.

473 ml can from the LCBO. Pours a nice golden colour with a generous white head. Aroma is grain. That’s about it. Taste is malt, grain. Decent lager.

TheJester (2130) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
473 mL can. Not-quite transparent gold with a decent white head. Grainy, grassy aroma with some yeast in there as well. Malty flavour. Sweetish. Not getting much else. Soft carbonation. Okay.

LCBO can. Hits the style, but still yellow fizzy stuff. Mild bitterness. Decent drinkability. Bit much carbonation.

Pours a crystal clear straw colour, with a lively white head. Aroma includes notes of griny malts, and grassy hops. Tasting noted include sweet malts, grass, tannins, and some fruity esters. Not bad, body is a little light but this is an ok Helles.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Pale golden pour with a touch of haze and a bit of white head. The nose is softly hoppy and a little bit spicy. Some soft lemony herbal spice aroma. Fresh and really well balanced. Bready malt. I’m shocked at how good this is.

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Can: Poured a pale yellow color Helles with a medium size white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of unrefined grainy malt with light cereal notes. Taste is also dominated by cereal notes with unrefined grainy notes. Light butter and herbal notes can also be detected. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Malt bill is not clean enough for my taste.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2977) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest.  It pours a crystal clear light gold. An earthy bready aroma with some soft hop notes. Medium bodied, bready earthy, crisp finish, solid malts and light hops. A top knotch lager. This hit the spot & provided a welcome break from all the hoppy beers. A clean well-made lager.
