COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tuppers’ Hop Pocket Pils is made via a complex hopping schedule which includes dry hopping for weeks over whole-flower Saaz and Mt. Hood hops. Also used are Saaz, Mittelfruh, Spalt and Mt. Hood in the kettle. The beer is bottled and keg conditioned which provides very fine carbonation and a fine head.

Bottle from Cavie. Light, hazy pour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet, light citrus, and maybe some minty smells. Taste is light fruit, spicy, grain, and a little twang in the finish.

Bottle. Pale golden, slightly cloudy. Aroma is a little musty. Finish starts slow, becomes bitter then coats the mouth. Overall this pretty good, but not my choice of style.

Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Pours a beautiful cloudy light amber, with a big fluffy, foamy white head that forms some mountainous peaks. Sweet bread malt, light and honeyed, with minimal floral/herbal hopping. Smells inviting, though I expected a little more hoppiness. The hops present themselves a bit more in the taste, finishing with a bitter, grassy twinge. The sweetness is still front and center--more than I’d like in a pils--but it’s not overbearing and the whole thing is refreshing. There are some buttery toffee flavors in there as well that are a bit unexpected. Pretty big body for the style with some big, fluffy carbonatoin. All in all a tasty, refreshing beer, but I’d like to see the sweetness dialed back a bit.

1/15/11. 12oz bottle. Slightly unclear golden pour with a small off-white head that fades and laces in chunky spots. Biting aroma of pilsner malt, lemon peel, and grassy hops. Nice malty, pilsner flavor with touches of apple, lemon peel, and lingering bitterness. Nice!

PorterPounder (5360) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Trade from drowland - thanks! Murky light orange, soft white head, but of lacing. Some cake mix and yeast in the aroma. Flavor has a nice Saaz induced hoppy bite, a bit of honey sweetness, some yeastiness, finishes with some cereal-like graininess. Mouthfeel has a bit of creaminess to it. Not bad at all.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2011
12oz bottle fresh from the brewery. Wow, I had no idea this was rated so high as a pils (#3 at the time). I honestly had hoped it was a landbier; no worries though because this rocked. Huge flavor for the style with some lingering bitterness. This is not a timid, watery offering. well done.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Pours cloudy, golden w/ rocky white head and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, tropical fruit (pineapple), yogurt, dough and flowers. Avg carbonation, crisp/med body. Some nice malts giving it a biscuity backbone w/ light, fruity sweetness. Hops balance nicely & dry the finish, bringing in some herbal and spice notes. Very good pilsner, plenty of complexity. Not really a thirst-quencher, but very satisfying.

Big thanks to GT2 for this one. 12oz bottle pours hazy golden/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is very malty, slight hops, caramel, bready yeast, and fig. Nice full rounded pilsener flavor, flavors of yeast, hops, with a slight spice. Nice Pils!

Pours cloudy yellow in my tumbler with a creamy white head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is bready malt, with a slight yeasty character. Body is thin, and a little lifeless. Flavor is much the same. Slight bready malt, with a yeasty bite. almost reminds me of a hefeweizen.

This pours a slightly murky gold color with a thick head on top. There’s some light lacing on the glass. Very malty in the aroma; pils malt, bread, caramel, and a bit of grass and herbal notes follow. The flavor is better than the aroma. Sweet bready malt is here with a little cream corn and grainy herbal notes but it gets crisp and dry in the finish with quite a bit of bitter grassy hops. As this warms, it reminds me a little of Prima Pils, which I didn’t initially see the comparison. Perhaps not as clean as I’d like but this is a pretty solid Pils.
