Der Hallertauer Hopfentrunk Hell erhält seinem Alkoholgehalt von 4,5% vol. wie alle Hornecker Biere von der Gerste, die von den Landwirten und Lagerhäusern aus der näheren Umgebung bezogen und in der eigenen Mälzerei vermälzt wird. Der Hopfen aus der Hallertau, dem größten und bekanntesten Hopfenanbaugebiets Deutschlands, verleiht dem Hallertauer Hopfentrunk Hell seine besondere Würze. Es schmeckt süffig, natürlich und frisch.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 Standard Helles appearance. Aroma is sweet malts, not really hoppy. Taste is flowery, sweet malts, boring Helles, but very drinkable. Finish is too metallic. Nice foamy mouthfeel. I am not sure what to think of this.

This beer has such a beautiful name... Really, "Hallertauer Hopfentrunk Hell." It holds such promise. Sadly the liquid does not deliver. It’s clear pale gold, some sticky foam -- so it look all right. Swirling around the glass throws some sweet wort, garbage-like DMS, and barely any hop into the aroma. Lightly sweet, light acidic tang, very low bitterness. I fear that it’s misleading to put the word "hopfen" in the name. Lately I’ve been enjoying some subtle, boring-ish beers but this is below consideration.

0,5 l bottle. Also from kappldav123. Thanks a lot! Clear, golden, white head. Looks like expected. Malty with fruity hints on the nose. Taste is malt, grainy, little bit metallic, citrus background. Increasing bitterness. More taste than a standard Helles, but still a Helles.

Many thanks to kappldav123 for this bottle! Smooth and malty beginning. Not too deep, not too hoppy. Standart Helles with not much flavour. Highly drinkable though but boring with hints of grain and only a few malty hints. No long aftertaste, nearly no bitterness.

Bottle looks very simple, almost like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, modest hoppy-dry, grasy, light sourish. Background a bit metallically. All in all quite mild, but not washy, but the hoppy notes could be more intense. Average.

bottle picked up in bayreuth. pale golden with a modest head; simple hay and bread dough aroma; light bitterness, not sure where what merited the use of ’hopfen’ in the title

Bottle:Pale golden to golden, a bit unclear, some tiny floaties visible, stable creamy mid-sized White head with a Little lace; mainly sweetish-grainy nose with subdued medical hops and a tinge of metal; light bitter-sweet flavour, nearly watery - but a bit adstringent; metallic traces - again - in the dry bitter finish. No, no glory...

Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en fris. Een goed bier.

So hopfig, wie ich es mir gewünscht hatte, war es dann wohl doch nicht. Dafür etwas Stroh, ein wenig Butter, etwas Getreide. Ganz ok.

Bottle from Pivnizub - many thanks! The beer pours out in a clear light golden colour with thin body and low head. Aroma of mild hops and acid. Taste of light hops, acid, citrus, leaves and straw. Thin and acid finish.
