The hop variety “Callista” from Hallertau is named after our light but incorruptible Session Lager. The tropical-fruity taste tantalizes everyone and creates desire for more. That’s Hop’n’Roll! Before the drinker’s eyes, this inviting session lager shimmers with a brilliant honey-blond color as bubbles rise to the surface to produce fine white foam.
As the bouquet diffuses towards the nose, it’s as if a crate of tropical fruit has been placed in an Alpine meadow at midsummer: Mango, passionfruit, mandarin, orange blossoms and freshly mown grass fill the air above the glass. Taking a drink, gustatory and tactile waves wash over the palate in a veritable bacchanalia of pure fruit and exhilarating, prickly effervescence, this conveyed in a light, lively body. Among the colorful panorama of aromas and flavors, mangos and ripe gooseberries rise to the surface and converge on the drinker’s palate where, as they recede, a hint of hops and malty sweetness lingers.
