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.

Golden; refined hop aroma; biscuity malts underneath honeyish, floral hops (Mt Hood influence); smooth palate, crisp finish. Simple but effective.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2010 6/10/10, 12oz bottle, St. George. Small white head that mostly dissipates atop lightly hazed straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, lemon, bread, some straw, light orange. Taste is medium sweet, lemon/straw/grass, some bread. Light-medium body, fairly smooth, light acidity, fairly drinkable. (6/3/7/4/14)

(12-6-05) Lightly hazed straw with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, hay, apple juice. Taste is moderately sweet, peach, some earthy, apple, honey, fairly mild bite. Watery light-medium body -- limited crispness but nicely drinkable. This is nothing like the beer I remember drinking in the past, and I liked the previous version. (5/3/6/3/11)

(1-3-03) Hazy golden body with minimal head. Aroma is lemony tart, some German and floral hoppiness, and undertone of malt. Taste is German hoppy and lemony, very bitter aftertaste. Medium body and crisp. (6/4/6/4/13)

bhensonb (10340) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Light hop aroma; seems fruity. Brassy gold color with a white head that sticks around. A light apricot or nectarine aroma as the glass approaches the lips. Carbonation is smooth and mild. Starts with sweet fruit. A bit thin bodied. Perhaps both floral and fruit hop. The finish is a bit astringent, and well balanced with light sweet and light bitter. This could pass for a pale ale.

Tmoney99 (10068) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottle. Poured clear amber with a large creamy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Good flowery hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Well balanced hoppy bitter sweet flavor with a moderate bitter finish.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown. Very pale clear yellow, does not look like an unfiltered beer. More weak and watery than a keller ought to be.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 8, 2011
A: This one pours a fairly clear straw color with a finger of white head and some sticky lacing. S: Quite an impressive nose. Lots of hops, surprisingly citrusy, but there’s nice spiciness and floral quality to them as well. Sweet bread and toffee make up the malt component of the beer. T: The flavor is good, but not quite as nice as the nose. Sweet fruits followed by grassy and bitter hops. Quite herbal with minimal earthy qualities to it. A little bit of citrus, particularly of the peel variety. M: Light to medium in body with a moderate carbonation. D: I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. The nose was quite nice, but the flavor wasn’t half bad either.

BeerandBlues2 (9068) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a large, frothy and bubbly white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, meal, cereal, straw), average hops (spicy, earthy, grassy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of peaches. Flavor is heavy malt (grain, meal, cereal, straw), average hops (spicy, earthy, grassy), and light esters (fruity) with notes of dust. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, medium carbonation, with a dry finish. This Pilsener has a nice, sweet malt backbone with adequate spicy and earthy hops to balance.
