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.

0,5 l bottle from local supermarket. Nice yellow colour with bubbles, head OK but not great. First I tasted some fruits and after that came the hops. Not too much for those who can’t stand really dry pils. Quite nice and easy to drink but not without some taste.

Suomenlinna jatkaa laatuoluiden linjalla Seth Lagerin jälkeen myös Pilsillä. Kyseessä kirkas, kullankeltainen olut paksulla valkoisella vaahdolla, joka jättää hieman pitsiä. Tuoksu maltainen ja voinen, mutta aavistuksen liian köykäinen. Maku sen sijaan on mainio. Voinen makeus on vahvasti esillä ja yllättäen toimii kokonaisuudessa loistavasti humalan tuoman katkeruuden vastatessa jälkimausta. Todella toimiva pils!

Hyvä peruspilsneri. Nopeasti livahti kurkusta alas. Tasapainoinen ja raikas kebabin kaveri.

Moebbels (728) - FINLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Ppirs just short of a clear golden yellow body with a frothy, well lasting white head. Nose has notes of hay, some florals and touch of honey. Taste is dry with a nice bitter finish, a little metallic note as well. Lively carbonation and light but not watery palate. Quite nice and refreshing, decent bitterness and some aroma hops that separate this from the basic light lager. Palate is surprisingly good as well despite the low ABV.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2015
(Bottle, Oak Barrel, Helsinki Airport, 26 May 2015) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fresh nose with notes of bread, grass, hay and grainy malt. Malty taste with bread, hay, grass, a touch of peaches, some vanilla and a balanced grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Fresh and tasty pilsener. Quite enjoyable.

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.
