"Hopfenkonig has a crisp, clean dry, hoppy nose and aromatic flavours."

henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2007
Super clear golden body, foamy white head, fine lacing; Small not pleasant very sugary wort like aroma, special with a very little grass; Big carbonation in soft thin sugary body with actually a very, very little hopfen bitterness; A very little very plain hopfen bitterness in finish with metallic mineral aromas. Hopfenkonig what?, terrible and super boring beer.

Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2007
Bouteille. Couleur or-pâle, mousse s’estompe pour garder un lacet, mais laisse de belles traces sur le verre. Arôme très grains, gazon, houblons floraux. Goût de grains, très houblon floral, définitivement saaz, douce amertume, belle finale sèche, bien atténuée. Légèrement mince, effervescence modérée à forte. Je trouve qu’elle est sous-évaluée ici, c’est une très bonne pils selon moi.

This is one of the better pilsners that I have had. Nice malt flavor to it that wasn’t overbearing but wasn’t absent either like some of the other pilsners that I have had. Crisp finish with some hoppy flavors. The aftertaste was wonderful. Hard to describe but you can tell that this is a time-perfected recipe. The glass that I got with it (pictured) is made of crystal which really set this one off with some style points too!

I think I got this at the LCBO in Ottawa and I remember it being an assertive well done pils. Page 412 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 259 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

GregClow (3215) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle from the importer. Light golden-yellow with a large, snow white head. Given the green bottle, I was expecting some skunk in the aroma, but it was actually quite clean and fresh, with soft malt and sharp herbal hop notes. Thin, crisp body. Flavour starts quite sweet, reminding me a bit of marshmallows, some notes of orange and honey, and a quick, herbal finish. A bit sweeter than I like from a pils, but otherwise, this is a pretty decent beer.

Quevillon (2928) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2007
Bouteille de 33 cl verte. Blonde claire, pas pire collet avec de la dentelle. Arome d’houblon moufette, un peu métalique. Goût passable d’houblon sec et faiblement sucré.

SilkTork (5565) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. Crisp forced carbonation and a noticeable dry dusty bite in the finish. Salt lingers. Malt is fairly clean, with some biscuit notes. This is a dry, almost harsh beer. There’s nothing wrong with it, and for those who count a high level of bitterness to be a sign of quality, the hop extract used here will certainly persuade them they are dealing with a first class brew. I liked it. It’s clean, refreshing and has some flavour. 10 months to go before the BBE date, so fairly fresh - which may account for the hop bite.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle - A golden colored beer. Thin head. A refreshing, moderately malty beer. A bit mild without much bite.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a light clear gold with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma is somewhat sugary sweet and grainy with a hint of hops -- thankfully it doesn’t seem to be skunky but I still don’t care much for it. Mild flavour, also sugary sweet with grain, hops, some cloying honey and a bitter finish. Light bodied. I didn’t care for this at all, quite disappointing.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2006
Grassy nose, some hops, pale yellow, small white head. Malt flavour has a mineralness to it, slight hops, light bodied, nicely bitter. Average, I hoped for better from this Brewery.
