COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hell’s Half Mile is a German style Helles Lager that is pale gold with a creamy white head. Helles is German for bright. Hell’s Half Mile has an appealing grainy aroma with a slightly sweet malty flavor yet perfectly balanced with traditional noble hop characteristics. Don’t let the light color fool you! This full bodied beer is complex and refreshing!

bottle - Pours hazy yellow-gold with a small white head. It has a mild cereal malt aroma. The flavor is moderately sweet and very straightforward. It’s light bodied and refreshing. Decent.

Bottle. Pours a dark golden. Tiny white head. No lacing. Sweet aroma. Flavor is somewhat bitter cereal. Medium bodied. Ok, but not memorable.

Golden yellow with a poor excuse for a head – fading and gone. Aroma is sweet and grassy along with cereal grains and noble hops. Taste is of grains, lemon, mild noble hops and semi-sweet pale malt. Body is sudsy and oily with a peppery finish.

12 oz. Nothing much good to say about this one. I hade Michelob Shock Top last night and it was 3 times the beer this was. Nuff said

12 oz bottle. Pours just a touch on the pale side of golden, lightly hazy, with a white head. Honey biscuit aroma. Flavor is also pretty biscuity with honey, slightly toasty, with caramel hints. Simple, but tasty.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours a dark straw color with almost no head. Aroma is cereal. Taste is similar to budweiser or any other lager. Not very good.

Onslow (1130) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Brew is medium orange amber with a thin layer of head, even with an agressive pour. Head quickly disappates. Aroma of grain. Taste is light malts at the start ending with a mixed bitter and sour hoppiness - you can really feel the sour on the sides of your tongue. A bit of off-flavor adjunct or whatever throughout the swallow. It is indeed complex but not as pleasant as I’d like. Had a heck of a time opening the second bottle only to find that it had two caps on it - I don’t recall that ever happening before and I’ve opened more than a few bottles in my day. So in that respect - a unique experience with this brew. But no extra points awarded.

Bottle from corner store. Poured a straw colour with a very small head. Very pleasant aroma of hops but the taste and aftertyaste were very jice. A decent brew to try again on a hot day.
