Schloss Hopfenkonig

Schloss Hopfenkonig

There has been commercial brewing at Eggenberg since 1681, with beer made there since at least the 1100s. Eggenberg belonged to a Benedictine monastery and can be found on the border of Salzburg and Passau; a famous Austrian brewery producing an eclectic mix of beers.

The Schloss Hopfenkonig is an attractively bitter German-style pils from Austria. Traditionally the Austrians shied away from copying their German counterparts but in modern times, it’s easy to be influenced by this great German style.

After an extensive lagering period of 12 weeks, we’re left with a lightly golden Hopfenkonig Pils that is very easy to drink. The Saaz hops give a moderately spicy character and solid bitterness that is a great complement to the soft malty sweetness. Smooth and light, this is a truly excellent beer.

    Golden and clear with a nice frothy head. This is everything I would want from a pilsner. Clean, crisp and full of flavour. Very refreshing and goes down a treat. (Posted on 16/05/2017)

  • Average Lager

    Review by Slack Babbath

    It's an OK lager but nothing more. Their is a nice bitterness and it's clearly better than the mass produced lager, however its just not exciting enough to be remarkable. (Posted on 22/03/2017)

  • Good

    Review by Paul

    light and refreshing but lacks flavour. I've had better lager style beers. Not a terrible beer, but easily forgettable. (Posted on 20/02/2017)

  • Not bad

    Review by K3VW

    Pilsners are not my favourite beer style this is a good example of a Pilsner but did not stand out as anything special. (Posted on 27/05/2016)

    Review by Redders

    Pretty average pale lager new country for me though (Posted on 26/04/2016)

  • Move along please...

    Review by Llamaman

    ...Nothing to see here.

    I'll readily admit I'm not usually a pilsner fellow, but gave this a go to see if I could be convinced.
    It has a lot going for it - it lacks the (excessive, in my opinion) carbonation typical of the style and has a nice malty sweetness balanced by spicy hops.
    But it's all very muted and I found it to be a bit bland to be honest. (Posted on 21/04/2016)

    One never knows quite what to expect as descriptions can be misleading. This is exactly as described a refreshing Pilsner, well worth trying. (Posted on 21/02/2016)

  • So Crisp

    Review by rikmartell

    I've never had this before and I can say its up there with the best pilsner I've ever had. Crisp, light and so tasty. Amazing stuff. Great price too. (Posted on 16/02/2016)

  • Order more than just the one

    Review by Richard

    A very easy to drink, smooth and light beer, but certainly doesn\'t lack taste and, at 5.10%, a bit of punch.

    Certainly order more than just the one. (Posted on 20/12/2015)

  • A surprise

    Review by Ity

    In the right setting and the right mood this is a great beer. The kind you could sit outside with and barbecue away an evening. Too bad I only had one bottle. (Posted on 11/04/2015)

    Review by AdyG

    This took me by surprise. Ordered with a mixed bag of beers for first tastings, this light, refreshing, crisp pils was one of the delights of the box. A beer heading for classic status... (Posted on 12/01/2015)

  • My new favourite

    Review by Delaney

    So easy to drink, very smooth and light. I had an open mind when purchasing it, almost expecting to be surprised, but it surpassed my expectations. Will be ordering plenty of these when having a barbecue. (Posted on 08/01/2015)

  • Superb, made me think twice

    Review by Thomas

    The Eggendorf Hoppenkonig is not a beer I would normally have expected to enjoy. I tried it amongst other German be press in a spirit of adventure, being normally a dark beer fan. From the first sip I realised this was a beer of character. It is a spicy tasty and malty light beer. It has to be tried to be believed. A truly excellent beer. The best of the Pilsner style.
