Our newest year round beer. A true German Helles brewed with five American hops. Crisp and refreshing Helles beer meets pleasant citrus hop character from Citra, Simcoe, Cluster, Centennial, and Chinook hops.

Frozer (118) - Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours light golden yellow with white head which dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Slight hop smell overpowered by biscuit aroma. Light bodied, not very much bitterness or maltyness. Tastes more like a bmc pilsner. The 5 hops are not an ample flavor.

Pours a beautiful gold with a big white head and lots of effervescence. Nose is lightly of hops. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is of lightly roasted grains balance well with various hops. A good tasting straight forward beer, leaning toward a pale ale style. Pairs well with turkey club on marble rye.

5/24/2014: Leinenkugel’s Hoppin’ Helles... Floral hop aroma with a bit of light biscuit malt. Flavor is hoppy, but not overly assertive and sems to be a blend of traditional spice and floral hops along with some melon and some citrus. The maltiness is a bit dryand biscuity which isn’t necessarily enough differentiation to call this out as a Helles rather than just another Pale Ale. overall, it’s light and refreshing and good enough for a warm, breezy day while lounging around the yard. 12 fl. oz. bottle (5.5% alc./vol.; AUG1114). Rating #159 for this beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear, medium gold color with a billowing white head that reduces rather quickly into a thin blanket. Loose, sudsy lacing along the glass. Aroma has a fair bit of malty sweetness up front with citrus hops soon to follow. Flavor is crisp and clean with a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Easy drinking.

12 oz bottle- Pours slightly hazy golden with a one finger head that reduces leaving a nice pillowy white head and layered lace. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy grapefruit, somewhat floral. The taste is very floral, moderate hops, mellow bitter finish. Better than most Leinenkugel beers.

jake65 (2613) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle: An assertive pour yields a monster of a bone colored head atop a sparkling golden body. Tons of bubbles. At first, the nose is fairly hoppy with florals and pine. It settles a bit and becomes a little more malty sweet. A little corn syrup. Taste is lightly earthy, florals, grain, and corn syrup. Crisp enough of a finish to get past a little more sweetness than I care for. Lingering finish of corn syrup and grain. Meh.

poisoneddwarf (1710) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 18, 2014
12 oz bottle, expired two and a half weeks ago. Aroma is doughy, creamed corn, cotton candy, grassy. Pours clear old gold with a medium fluffy white head with excellent retention; leaves some lace. Taste starts out lightly sweet before turning pleasantly bitter with nice earthy, grassy hop character. Highly carbonated, creamy mouthfeel, medium body. Excellent. Probably the most impressive beer I’ve ever had from these guys.
