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.

A little better than I expected. Impressive head, and a cloudy pour that was ok, except for the dark specks suspended in the glass. Probably would have given it a 4 aside from that. Aroma is a bit musty with hops and quite earthy on the tail end. Taste is decent, nice hops and a decent bite. I will definitely put this on my list of beers to try again - this one may not be the freshest, I did buy it a few months back.

12oz bottle, unknown date, my magic beer decoder ring was unable to solve the mystery code printed on the case, but this delivery was from Tupper’s July debut in Georgia. Pours very hazy with a yellow/gold/orange color progression. Starts with a fluffy and foamy two finger white head that leaves some clumpy rings of lacing that hang around forever, and holds a light but foamy cap and ring. A very nice looking beer. Aroma is citrus, oranges, lemons, earthy, floral, spicy hops, yeast, and a little musty. Moderate strength. Flavor is very hoppy, very nice spicy hops, earthy, floral, and some citrus, with good bitterness, some lightly sweet bready malt is there as well, wonderful hoppy, bitter, scrubbing finish. Huge flavor overall for the style, I can see why this costs a little more than other craft pils, this stuff is loaded. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick, good carbonation. Incredibly drinkable beer, delicious, and is the best of the 3 new pilsners I’ve tried today, even beating out the impressive Southampton Keller Pils.

Butters (4062) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Shared thanks to austin. Pours a clear light amber with large khaki foamy head. Nose of homebrew hop tea. Flavor is barely noble hops, more of an earthy woodsy hop and some faint biscuit. Not at all what I think of a pils, but very good. Kinda awesome like prima pils, but not quite as good.

ganache (6111) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle. Pale/pils malt nose, light dust and chalk, great noble hop nose, very light mineral tone. Beautiful rich golden body, transparent with tons of carb and pillowy sudsy head. Taste is bone dry and very bitter, a very hoppy bite with strong mineral bite and a medium/light metallic aftertaste. Some great stony, sharp notes, touch of oil, body seems full, actually. A very good, somewhat unpredictable pils.

Drake (14358) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grassy, slightly resiny hops with a big earthy and slightly mineral quality. The taste is big green, grassy hops with some pale malts. A faint bit of dry toastiness as well. Medium bodied. Nice pilsner. Opened 6/7/10.

Serving: Draft at the Nova Brewfest.
It pours a clear, light gold color with a foamy, white head. The nose is a balance of slightly floral hops and a bit of malt. The flavor has a nice balance of spicy hops and pale malt that adds both a touch of sweetness and body. Light to medium body with average carbonation leading to a medium, bitter finish. This is a tasty and refreshing brew that is highly sessionable.

I might give this the nod as the best keller weisse that i’ve ever had, saying best pilsner may be stretching it but maybe not. Impressive!

One of the better tasting pilsners I’ve had. Nose and taste of doughy breads and citrus. Rated 5/12/04

Not sure how I forgot to rate this, but this actually works out well now that they’ve switch brewers thanks to the evil that is AB. Glad to see this beer is still world class... Big grassy, floral Saaz nose, doughy/cracker malts, light honey, touch of citrus. The taste is dry, lightly bitter, lots of fresh cut grass, some lemon, touch of herbs; malts are very crisp cracker, some dusty yeast, but still it’s a pretty clean beer. Moderate carbonation, soft body with lingering bitter finish. One of the best pilsners in the US with no doubt.
