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.”
