COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Höpken Pils on pils-tyyppinen lagerolut, joka on väriltään vaaleankeltainen. Vaahto on kauniin valkoinen ja maku kevyt ja kuiva. Vahvasta humaloinnista on aikaansaatu voimakas kitalaen peittävä katkeruus ja hyvin pehmeä jälkimaku. Klassikkoesikuvansa mukaisesti Höpken Pils on valmistettu parhaasta pilsner-maltaasta ja tsekkiläisistä Saaz-humaloista.

Tap at the brewpub. Poured a hazy straw colour with a few bubbles. The aroma is light malt light hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a citrus hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Light bodied with lively carbonation. I wasn’t expecting much but it wasn’t so bad.

500ml bottle, thanks to djoeye for sharing. Pale yellow coloured body, clear. Frothy white head, nice lacework. Juicy malts on the nose. Flavoured with grainy malts, dough and sweet fruits. Distant bittersweet ending. Rather thin on the swallow. Lightly carbonated. Drinkable (Tromsø 19.05.2014).
