Extra Hop® is produced once or twice a year, usually in the spring.
It is a German Pilsener produced by way of decoction, lighter than Tipopils (4.8 against 5.2% alcohol by volume), with 11 Plato degrees. It is drier, more bitter and fragrant. Since it is matured in barrels, it has all the time and ideal conditions for perfect decantation of the yeast, and is therefore quite limpid. People who are used to Tipopils will think much has been lost with the yeast. Extra Hop® does not have the typical thickness of unfiltered, yeasty beers. Nevertheless, it offers a lot to people willing to take the time to become more familiar with it. Like other Pilseners, it is a simple beer that is evaluated according to just a few characteristics: bitterness, body (a hint of malt), hoppy aroma (quantity, quality and persistence) and, most importantly, the harmony between these three factors.

Draught @ Brewery tap, Birrificio Italiano, Lurago Marinone (CO), Italy. Wow what a pilsner .... Light unclear medium yellow color with a average, frothy, excellent lacing, fully lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, heavy hoppy, grass, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long long duration, and a very nice dry finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. THIS IS THE BEST TASTING PILSNER I HAVE TASTED - Well made Agostino. ;o)) (081107)
