See You In HellesSee You In Helles
Notes: Helles is the German word for light-colored and perfectly describes this lager beer which is full bodied and lightly hopped. Pilsner and aromatic malts combine to give it a light golden color. Just like the Bavarian Helles beers of Munich, it uses the hop varieties of southern Germany. The alcohol content is 4.7%. See you in Helles is the signature beer of Mark Spilker.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden color with a tiny head of fizzy white foam. The head fades rather fast, leaving just a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is strong of a biscuit and bready smell mixed with some aromas of a lighter noble hop smell of some grass and herb. Along with these smells comes some sweeter smells of caramel and a bit of honey.
Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready flavor that has a decent showing of caramel and a bit of herb. As the taste advances the caramel fades a bit with some hints of yeast and more herb come to the tongue. With a little bit of grass and some light toast that comes to the tongue at the very end, one is left with a nice, somewhat crisp, but somewhat more malty taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average side in terms of thickness and chewiness with a carbonation level that is rather average. Overall the feel is pretty good and makes this a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – A nice flavorful lager with a good blend of crisp malt, bread, sweet, and light hop tastes, overall creating a very easy drinking.

A: The beer is relatively clear light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving lots of specks of bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge of the glass, and some lacy rings around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of biscuit and cracker malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of flavors of cracker malts along with fruity notes of white grapes towards the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and rather dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: In some ways, this beer drinks more like a Kölsch than a Munich Helles Lager, particularly with the dryness in the finish.

Modeled after the light lagers of America, the light German counterpart soon flooded Europe with a crisp and refreshing lager taste that was modest but characterful. Snake River goes the German route in making a light lager that uses proper malts, proper hops and without adding unnecessary weight or fatigue.

See You in Helles pours with a brilliantly bright straw color as it catches the eye with glittering carbonation. As a arid honeycomb forms above, its scent drifts across the nose with floral honeysuckle, a spicy tinge of grassiness and a gentle baking bread sweetness. And that same sweetness grazes the tongue with light impressions of honey and wafers.

As the ale develops across the middle palate, the sweetness lifts and the hops turn from floral to citrus. Hints of lemon and apple precede a moderately bitter finish of lemongrass, peppercorn and mint. A late taste of sulfur and hay show a glimpse of yeast and grain in its lowest reduction possible.

Light in body, the racy beer is crisp, clean and offers an utmost refreshing taste on the palate. Effortless in drinkability, the sheer lightness of the beer gives up on any full culinary expression for the sake of refreshment and drinkability. A brief afterglow of grassy hops and cilantro hinge on soapiness as the beer is highly sessionable and swift.

Draft last night at PreFunk Nampa, Polished golden with a foamy white head and great lacing... bright clean maltiness with subtle balanced floral/grassy hoppiness... extremely drinkable... I love a good lager and this is proper.

4's across the board.

Served from a Howler, purchased at Liquor Shed.

It pours a very pale straw yellow with a 1" head of foam and has great lacing.

It has a spicy hop nose that's typical of the style along with some grain.

The taste is more grainy than hoppy. I wish it were the other way around. The hop spice does maintain itself throughout the session but the grain begins to wear on my palate rather quickly.

The body is not a thin as I thought from the first sips, the carbonation is on the fine side. Good mouthfeel.

I'd call it a goodish example of the style but I don't understand why the Howler came at a premium price...$7.99 for 32 oz.
