August Schell Fort Road Helles

What the brewers say

“Farmed local, the Schell’s Fort Road Helles is made with barley grown within fifteen miles of the brewery on the historic Fort Road. A German pale lager, Fort Road Helles is moderately malty with a bready character. Hints of herbal spices and a balanced hops profile create an easy-drinking beer that is full of flavor.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Spicy and pine hops aroma, light malt sweetness, a touch of toast and floral esters. Mineral notes come in toward the end.”

Flavor: “Bready malt, spicy pine hops flavor, pleasant balancing bitterness that builds into an almost tartness. Still, some bready and caramel notes that are well-balanced with the other flavors. Some might find this a bit sweet for style.”

Overall: “Refreshing. Crisp. Clean. More American than German, but it has spirit.”
