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.

Bottle and draught (at Suomenlinnan). Head is mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a note of pepper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Having been in Franconia for three weeks prior, this had big shoes to fill. But I’ll be damned if it wasn’t up to the task. Bright, fresh, balanced, clean, and ridiculously quaffable...it’s hard to ask more of a pilsner. And 4.2% abv??? Seriously? Fantastic.

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).
