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!

What really stands out aboiut this beer is the thick sticky mouthfeel. IT definitely goes down smooth, sweet corn and a little sharpenss from the hops. But it is a really full bodied light helles, too.

ThirstyBird (2997) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Pours a yellow gold with a fizzy white head that leaves the scene. The smell is toasted malt, biscuity, light sweetness. The taste is toasted malt, biscuity, a dry finish. The body is light+ with carbonation that is a bit course. In Germany, this would be middle of the road at best.

GenDV138 (7699) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Can poured into a tulip-style goblet. Canned sometime in December 2013, date is a bit smudged but possibly December 13 or 18. Pours a clear straw yellow with some light floaters, about half a finger of off-white head that fades quickly. Aromas of lime, yeast, herbs, floral notes, light citrus, a little apple or pear. Tasting notes of lemon/lime citrus, yeast, floral and herbal notes. Light body with a dry finish. Pretty good for the style.

Poured from a tap. Clear light yellow color. Medium white frothy head. Slight bread like smell. Nutty sour bread like flavor with a light transition. Still not a lager fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
12 oz. can, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out light grains and some very subtle herbal notes. Flavour is quite fruity for the style, with some tropical fruits (passionfruit, pineapple and citrus), some light grainy notes, and dry herbal notes. Very refreshing and drinkable. Solid stuff for the style.

onceblind (10569) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Clear golden with a thin foamy cap. Nose is crackery and biscuity, somewhat bland. Smooth flavor of toasted biscuit and lagery blonde malts, semi sweet, and and a wee touch of corn. Not shabby.

Can. Pours clear gold with frothy off-white head. Aroma is toasted and cereal malts, butterscotch, floral notes, and light citrus. Flavor is dry malts, light toast, lager yeast, light fruit esters, and faint hops; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
