COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pilsner is one of the world’s most popular beers and there are many interpretations of this style. The great pilsner beers of Germany, specifically Northern Germany, are the inspiration for our second lager - Hans’ Pils. These beers are known for being hoppier than the average pilsner and ours is no exception. In fact, at 52 IBU’s, it is hoppier than many pale ales. The featured hop in this beer is the spicy and herbal Tettnang Tettnanger hop. German pilsner malt yields a pale golden color and provides the perfect support for our blend of German hops. Our house German yeast strain ferments clean and dry which further adds to the authenticity of Hans’ Pils.

On tap. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head and lacing. It has a malty aroma with a hop background. The flavor is similar, with a light malt taste and earthy hop backbone followed by a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Best by 04MAR14 Canned Pours an off-clear yellow ale with a loose white sheet. Smells nice and juicy with some grain, corn, white grape juice. Flavor is bitter, with some grain, some soil and hay. A little over bittered IMO. Medium on light bodied with hi and tight carb. Decent beer, albeit nothing spectacular - wonder what the beer was like when it won Silver at GABF.

tectactoe (1858) - Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Can: bright sunshine yellow color with a yeast filled cloudiness throughout. Foamy, leathery, cloud-like white head with nice staying power that leaves some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is very nice, sweet grains, fresh baked bread, & some clean yeast notes. Mild DMS. Taste is more fresh grain, lightly sweet pilsner malt, faint bread, lemon zest, & some spicy & leafy Saaz hops leading to a mildly bitter finish. Clean feel, somewhat salty & spicy hop character in the aftertaste. Faint metallic notes. Pretty nice lager all around.
