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. Pours clear yellow with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of grass, lemon, flour, hops and a note of peach. Flowery Saaz hop flavors with light malt, perfectly balanced. Bit of dryness in the finish, with a delicate but long-lasting linger.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a bit of sediment, large fluffy white head. The nose is lightly hoppy with a bit of bready malt and some light yeastiness. The flavor is lightly bitter with some decent Saaz notes and a soft bready and doughy malt base. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a shortish finish. Decent enough I guess, but not what I remembered from the past.

Had a difficult time locating this on the website, mine was labeled Tupper’s hop pocket pils brewed by Old dominion. Mine says lager beer on it but I know I saw keller someplace on the label but can’t see it now! Nice clean aroma from a bottle dated 010407. Pour is full of sediment. Looks like a hefe. Has a little bit of a candy. Taste is a little sweet, has a almost candy sensation about it. Now I sense it in the smell too, that candy thing in there. Unique finish is not too bad but it could have a few more manners.

Bottle. Pours copper gold with a white head, good retention/some lace. Aroma of floral/grassy hops, biscuit, hay. Taste is spicy saaz and floral hops, buttered biscuit, lager yeast. Palate is creamy, soft, bitter finish. Very interesting.

Capa (1993) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUL 16, 2012
Hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma is floral, grass and hay. Biscuity, floral, grass. Nicely crisp finish. Solid beer and quite the summer refresher.

ROGUE (2096) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JUN 22, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a clear straw color with a thick white head that leaves a slight lace. Big aroma of floral hops, grass, hay. Taste shows a smooth, toasty, biscuity malt backbone. Good hop crispness, lasts through the finnish. Touch of lemon and orange. Taste shows a smooth, toasty, biscuity malt backbone. Good hop crispness, although still a little malty sweet. Touch of lemon and orange. Finishes clean.

This was a go to for a time. I bought up a couple of cases when they stopped production a couple of years ago. Haven’t hap it since production started up again but I remember this being a nice hoppy beer. Very drinkable and enjoyable.
