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!

Tasting Notes

Light gold in color with aromas of grain, hay and honey. Flavor has a pronounced malty backbone with hay and honey balanced by noble hops. Finishes refreshing.
