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.

Not a big fan of the style and this one is pretty overwhelming. Needs more balancing malts.

This is a darn good beer. Big white head on a clear, straw colored brew. Floral hops immediately evident in the nose. Quite clean and (mysteriously) more fruity than the ale. Possibly a little more well-rounded than the ale. Hop flavor and bitterness abundant. Finishes dry and bitter. Very different and pleasant - especially for the hophead!

Frothy-white-big head. Light, hazy-golden color. Smooth and bitter; rather fruity. Apples maybe? Bitterness lingers in a lovely way.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2001
Quite good, but tastes in many ways like a slighty watered-down version of the ale. Still quite aggressively hoppy.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 12, 2001
A very impressive piece of brewing, this rare example of a keller Pils is one of the finest example of a domestic-brewed Pilsner. Fresh, clean, smooth: everything you could want in a lager. A joy to drink.

Good pils, but a little too bitter for the style.

Very impressive smell!
