I took a quick picture of the can, because taking a picture of the beer after it was poured into a glass just wasn't on my mind that day. I can tell you though that it appears a thin, golden yellow straw colour. It looks like every other watered down brew, and that's why I wasn't so excited to show a picture of it. However, one thing I've learned is to not judge a brew by its colour.
|Coal Harbour Brewing Company - 311 Helles Lager|
On scent, I get hints of a little hops, that are slightly floral. Yes, a hops scent in a Helles Lager. Maybe some malt too? Not too sure, but it's quite pale so it could be anything.
The first sip reveals a thin, smooth, low carbonated, easy drinking beer. However, it's still got enough flavour to make me want another sip. This is pretty much exactly what I needed on that day. It's a solid, affordable Helles Lager, that isn't going to break your bank. It's sold chilled in an 8-pack for around $15. Overall, it's your choice whether you want a boring econo-lager, or this one for the same price.
I give the 311 Helles Lager a stress-relieving 8.0 / 10
