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.

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Alko Helsinki. Appearance is pale and clear with a head. Aroma has yeast and caramel. Taste has also some caramel, but this is also dry from the hops. Is a Belgian Pale Ale or just imitation of Duvel? Doesn’t really matter.

janubio (727) - SPAIN - AUG 23, 2016
Golden colour, with a big head that fades soon, keeping a layer and some lace. Aroma is fruity, some banana and citrus, and moderately hoppy. Medium body, great carbonation. Taste is fruity, banana, spicy notes. Not as bitter as aone would expect from "hoppy", more on the sweet side. Not exactly the best Kasteel.

Psytron (1949) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Smell of grass, malt. Hazy golden colour, very high white head. Aroma of yeast, grass, paper, some overripe fruit in finish. Starts off as a papery lager, ends as a heavily yeasty belgian strong with grassy notes. Seriously imbalanced. Starts bitter, finishes sweet.

Muzzleloader (34) - FINLAND - JUL 30, 2016
33cl bottle from Alko. Pours bit cloudy bright yellow with dense frothy white head. Typical Belgian nose. Crispy semi-dry, bit of tangy sourness in the end. Not so hoppy, but nice balance though.

Marstonlad (768) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy straw yellow with a big frothy head - beautiful. The aroma features citrus fruitiness, grapefruit and apple - also some grainy maltiness in the background. Similar to saisons. Taste is light sweet initially, later becoming more bitter and sour. Hoppiness stays moderate despite the name; pale maltiness supports hops neatly. Flavours of grass, grain, herbs and lemon. Not much spiciness. The palate is medium-bodied and smooth, low to average in carbonation. Fairly malty in retrospect for an ale this pale.

mauritsio (774) - FINLAND - JUL 24, 2016
