Belgian pale ale.
Kasteel Hoppy is a blond ale of high fermentation, with a bitterness of 45 EBU. Strictly selected, Belgian hops are essential for the hoppy, spicy aroma, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Not too impressive Belgian Ale. Bought it for the "hoppy" aroma but it’s nothing really interesting.

Bottle at PaterMarcus. Pours golden colour, minimal white head disappears quickly. Aroma of hay, floral, grass, citrus. Taste is very bitter with medium carbonation. Alcohol feels a bit stronger than 6,5.

Pours a large white head with light hoppy aromas. Hazy gold colored body. Medium carbonation and bitterness. Light barley. Suitable with fat cheese for example. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (8320) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle, shared with my wife and Sandra M. Hazy light yellow body, lasting lacy white head. Mild grassy hop aroma and character, fruity undertones, light sweet pale malts. I liked the complexity of their tripel better, but this is nice for what it is.

750ml brown bottle with cork. Bright yellow colour, very full white head. Good thick glass coating lacing. Nose has lemon and grass, trace yeasty. Yaste has dryish malt with grass and lemon hops. Lemon and grassy aftertaste, pretty dry, bitterness is modest. Light in body with medium carbonation. A decent Belgian pale ale, refreshing.

Not quite as hoppy as the name indicates. Pretty basic blond, with extra hops added. Not much body. Refreshing beer. Not bad, but not likely to become one of my favourites

Scheveningen 05-10-2015 Wat een tegenvaller tov ander bier van kasteel. Weinig tot geen geur. Neigt meer naar een pils. Erg flauwe waterige smaak en qua bitterheid ook slap. Kortom heel erg matig.

750ml caged and corked bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a generous white head that settles down to some spotty lacing. Aroma is a little spicy with some light fruit. Taste is a light spicy hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Quite hoppy for a Belgian style ale, but not hoppy compared to American pale ales. A fairly well balanced ale, that is a little thin in body. Just OK, nothing special.
