Der Klassiker! 1956 von Leonhard Hofmann kreiert, das erste Bier nach Pilsener Brauart im Aischgrund. Für Liebhaber hopfenbetonter Biere. Sehr dünn gemaischt, um nur die „edlen Stoffe“ aus dem Malz zu ziehen. Kalt vergoren und klassisch kalt gereift. Hellgoldene Farbe mit feinperliger Kohlensäure. Eine Sommerwiese frischer Düfte. Im Antrunk weich und voll (ein Bier, das uns die leeren Hopfenwässer, die lange Zeit gebraut wurden, vergessen lässt), angenehme Rezens, im Nachtrunk erfreut die feine Hopfenbittere den Gaumen! Ein wirklicher, „Aischgründer Klassiker“ entstanden durch traditionelle, handwerkliche Braukunst! Malz: helles Pilsner Gerstenmalz, Hopfen: Hallertauer Nordbrauer, Hallertauer Tradition, Wasser: weiches Brauwasser aus unserem Brunnen, Hefe: untergärige Bierhefe, Stammwürze: 11, 8 %, Alkohol: 4,9 %.

This should be aliased with the other Hopfengold from the brewery. Trade with Culchiem. Thanks. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Nose is straw and metal. Also some rotten notes. Flavor is rough grain, grass and a bit of bread. Medium bodied. Bitter dry finish.

SirRepsol (158) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
from bottle. pours a clear yellow colour with a two-finger rocky white head that quickly fades away. aroma of floral hops and herbs with a slight amount of toasty maltiness and skunkiness in the background. light body, watery mouthfeel and average carbonation. the hopfen gold is characterised by quite a good balance of sweet and bitter notes and a taste that is definitely above that of your average german pilsener. highly drinkable session beer with some grassy and bready flavours and a pleasent bitter aftertaste, but nothing more...
