Tap Handle #373: Anheuser-Busch - Burnin' Helles

Tap size:  7.25"
Rarity:  Rare
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

This is the last of the Anheuser-Busch's "you choose it, we'll brew it" tap handles that I've profiled (the other taps were Devil's Hop Yard and Mule Kick). Burnin' Helles was brewed for Ohio when residents chose it over Racer Snake Red (an all-malt American amber) and Old Eyepopper (a Dunkel brewed with caramel and chocolate malts and Bavarian hops). The tap is a little on the small side, but the colors are beautiful and the label is a metallic green and red. It features a mug of frothy beer with hops wrapped around it and flames coming up from the base. The only thing that bothers me is the clearly visible slip lines from the mold running down the side of the tap.

Burnin Helles is a rich and malty Bock-style lager that is tempting as it showcases the finest domestic malts and the best hand-picked Bavarian Hallertau hops. It’s a true salute to more than 200 years of Ohio’s proud brewing tradition, and the beer was created and brewed in 2006 by a small team of local employees at the Columbus, Ohio, brewery, to be sold only in Ohio. This beer will appeal to those who have “a bit of a devil in you.” Weighted average on is 2.71 out of 5.
