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.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 Thanks, erice! Growler from Whole Foods Fair Lakes, VA. Pours a transparent yellow with big white head. Aroma has lots of herbal hoppiness. Taste has some yeast, is very dry, herbal, grassy bitterness, the Saaz hops are fantastic. Finish is crisp and bitter, a fantastic pilsner.

Growler from Fair Lakes Whole Foods. Clear golden pour with a thin fluffy white head. Grassy hop aroma with notes of cereal malt. A little bit of citrus. Mildly sweet malt flavor. Bitter hoppy finish. Nice easy to drink pils.

Pours gold with a white head. Smells earthy and of straw and dry pilsner malt. Tastes of wildflowers and sweet with a perfumy finish.

Dogbrick (14387) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Grassy hops aroma with light malt underneath. Light to bedium body with flavors of yeast, grass, hops and malt. The finish is earthy malt and yeast with a mild hops flavor left over. Above average overall.

JaBier (8445) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2009
12oz bottle. Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Lager yeast aroma with some malt and barely any hop notes. Malty and lagery flavor with some crisp hop in the finish.

Taste of the first batch back at the WBF VIP tent. Unfiltered. Damn good. Hazy light orange/golden pour. Floral hops. Crisp and tasty. Can’t wait for the bottles to return.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2010 Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 12/28/10

Aroma: The nose has some floral hops, spice, yeast, and grass
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is floral and grassy mostly, with a biscuity malt presence as well
Palate: It has a nice crisp light-medium body, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: Wow, I haven’t had a Tuppers beer in years. Yes, their beers did resurfaced a while back, after a pretty long hiatus, but for some reason I haven’t had one since they started brewing them at St. George, so this one clearly needed a re-rate. Anyway, I enjoyed this one. Much better then my old notes would have indicated, and more toward what I thought I remembered of this beer. A re-rate was truly needed here.

Location: Having lived in VA/MD/DC region for a long time I use to drink this one pretty regularly, and I didn’t realize it had been retired, which explains why I haven’t seen it in a while....

Overall Impression: Looking back on an old rating I had no comments but the score, so I’ll just score it for now. I do remember thinking it was a pretty nice one for it’s style, but not much else about it. (3.2)

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle, #400 Hazy yellow pour with huge head. Light pilsy aroma and flavor. Pretty bad. I literally didn’t finish it with dinner at a restaurant. Avoid this one!

3.5
Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Shared by Bill: Light yellow pour with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is grainy, with fresh lemon citrus. Very malty backbone here, but surprisingly bitter and full-flavored for the style. This is a pilsner for people who drink IPAs.

3.6
CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Pours from 12 oz bottle a lovely, hazy straw color. Aroma of hops, malts, biscuity yeast and straw. Flavour of malts, yeast a bit of hops and citrus. Extremely smooth and tasteful beer. An excellent pils!
