A- Pours a hazy lemon color with a 1.5 finger off white head that quickly dissipates. Nice soapy lacing persists.
S- Fruity citrus aroma. Lots of esters. Lemon zest or lemon grass, pineapple, range of tropical juices. Lager malts
T- Fruits indicated from the nose along with a touch of peppery spice up front. Slight grainy notes and buttery lager malts in the finish. Crackers. Smooth and well balanced.
M- Light to mid body. Crisp bite of carbonation. Moderate drinkability for the style. Very refreshing.
O- A wonderful example of the style with a fantastic spicy kick to it. Would love a case of this for floating the river during the summer.

Poured the Hotter than Helles into a pint glass.
A - Pours a cloudy yellow with a finger of white head.
S - Faint malts, and some bitter hops
T - A beer that lacks the flavor of a good Helles. Just a little bread flavor, not much else sadly.
M - Smooth medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation.
O - A little disappointed with this offering from Cigar City, better options out there for the style.
