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.

Pours straw yellow with a large white head. Smells earthy and spicy. Taste is quite bitter for a pilsner, but has the classic earthy hop notes. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and active mouth-carbonation, Real Ale Hans’ Pils finishes with a lingering earthy spice.

Poured from a can driven up from Austin. In an Eku tulip glass it’s straw gold with large head and lace. Aroma of grassy hops, fresh bread dough, hay. Flavors of straw and floral hops, herbal juice, slight kumquat, bitter bruit rind. Overall flavorful and somewhat bold but with significant bitterness.

Again everybody tends to make a big deal about this beer. It’s all hype! Flavor is forgettable. It is too typical. Texas is yet to make a brew I’m proud of. With the exception of Real Ales Sisyphus.

docsteigs (533) - Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Very refreshing lager with stronger than expected bittering profile. Nose is Euro hoppy, pour very nice thick head, beer straw colored and somewhat cloudy. Taste is very bitter pilsner with good malt character. Finish is clean and satisfying.

csbosox (1223) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2013
12oz can served in Spiegelau Pilsner Glass. Light straw color, fluffy and long lasting bone white head. Aroma is quite spicy and floral, with a touch of crackers and seemingly clean fermentation characteristics. Clean, cracker-like flavor with a long, lingering finish that is mildly fruity and quite floral and spicy, once again more hops derived than off-flavors from fermentation. The finish is rather bitter, in fact bracingly bitter, due to the dry finish and simple malt bill. This beer really highlights Tettnang Tettnanger and delivers the hop bitterness and dryness that are the hallmark of a German Pils.

I’ve really liked this brewery, and I am very excited to see a craft pilsner offered for sale in my local supermarket. Appearance is very, very nice. The head was so big I had to wait to pour in the last third of the can, and it lasted quite a while, leaving lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is also very nice, great spiciness and hop aromas, along with the grains and grasses you expect from German pilsners. The taste doesn’t disappoint either. You could almost pull it off as a pale ale if you served it in a white can with no label, it’s that hoppy. And the spiciness from the hops really accents the grains and grassy flavors perfectly. There’s somewhat of a citrusy flavor in the background too, offering a nice complexity to a delicious beer. Body is perfectly pils, light and well carbonated (but not over-carbonated). Awesome job again, RABC. Definitely I will be buying this one a lot in the coming months, as I assume that brewer’s cut altbier will run out sooner or later! As always, support your local breweries, especially when they’re this good!
