Inspired by the revolutionary lagers of Munich, Pete’s Wicked Helles Lager perfectly balances malt sweetness with a clean hop finish.

Not bad. This has a definite lite flavor followed by a very strong and lingering hop finish.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 5, 2009
12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a slightly frothy white head that faded quickly. The smell was grainy with a little bit of hoppiness in there. The flavor was quite weak with a little bit of spicy hops but not much else. A very weak Petes.

nearbeer (4929) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2007
This was a good, highly available beer. Didn’t realize it wasn’t available anymore. Smooth and balanced with a clear golden appearance. Slightly hoppier than most Helles, but that is probably what made it good.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle on sale. Lager glass. Light malts, and very light hops. Smells like a light Helles. Sweet taste, a little sweeter than I expected. What is up with this brewery is every beer supposed to be a little sweet. Like someone poured a sugar packet in each beer. Lite hoppy notes and those are very light. Lots of carbonation. Once again Petes wicked releases a boring and overly sweet beer.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2006
12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy golden colour, thin white head. Sweet, fresh grainy aroma, pale malt, slightly worty with touches of honey sweetness. A bit too sweet actually, but otherwise quite good. Toasty finish with a kiss of noble hop flavour.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Pours decent enough-- cloudy, golden yellow, nice head. Taste initially is of the more malty slant, then the beer transistions rather abrubtly to a more hop-tinged taste. I’d like to try this on tap. A little flat, but not bad.

BeerandBlues2 (12198) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Pours cloudy golden orange with tiny suspended particles and a small off-white, mostly diminishing and leaving spotty lacing. Faint light bread aroma with a yeasty body and hoppy nose. Initial flavor is sweet yeast and then a sour hop finish with a lingering effect. The palate is light and fizzy with a buttery smoothness.
