Lorenzo Dabove "Kuaska": Beautiful to look at (it can have a luscious white, creamy head) and taste, Tipopils is quite well-balanced. It has an inviting aroma of malt, fresh hops, banana and yeast, and a dry flavor characterized by an irresistible "bitterness" that turns into a persistent and pleasant bitterish aftertaste. It is the perfect beer to drink in only two moments of the day: at meals and between meals! Tipopils is a "Pilsner" style beer produced by way of infusion, with approximately 5.2% alcohol by volume (15.8 Plato degrees). It has a rather dry, hoppy flavor. After a rather long primary fermentation, it undergoes a short maturation phase of about 2 weeks.

Water: with a total hardness of approximately 30 French degrees;

Hops: four types are used. A very bitter Hallertauer Magnum is used for the first addition, then a Hallertauer Perle of average aromaticity and bitterness is used for the second addition. Hallertauer Hersbrucker and Hallertauer Saaz (rich in essential oils), which are used for the third and last addition, have the important task of releasing the finer aromas of the hops to the wort. More Saaz hops are added before maturation and when the liquid has cooled, which releases a subtle grassy aroma of hops;
Malt: Pilsener malt and a hint of caramel malt (for color) from Germany and France;

Alc./Vol.: 5.0
Plato: 15.8
