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.

>> Celebrating my 8,400th beer review on ratebeer. This was the best beer (well, so far) of my Interstate 10 mega road trip. Excellent low haze honey straw pour with thick white foam. Nose is beautiful honeydew, fresh honey biscuit and dark butter. Good webby lacing. Nose adds fresh real orange, honeydew, cantaloupe. Juicy, super clean taste with awesomely rich buttermilk biscuit and browned butter. Powerful balancing grassy hops. Long grassy bitterness with sourdough and a mildly lactic palate, encompassing mouthfeel. So good. Better and better as it goes down.

Fresh can I picked up in Austin a couple weeks back. Can’t believe I’m giving a TX pilsener a 4, but loved this. Clear yellow, with thin persistent head. Amazing lemon and grass nose. Light biscuit, awesome delicate but very present hops, super clean finish.

Pours a clear golden color, fluffy white head, lots of lacing. Aroma was a typical pilsner/lager with straw, hay, earth, and yeast. Taste followed suit, but also had some nice hoppy bitterness in it as well. Kind of a nice refreshing and lighter beer. Got this as an extra in a trade. Not bad at all.

pours a hazy goldenrod with a slightly green hue. excellent head retention and some wispy lacing. very green, vegetal aroma with notes of green bell pepper, some lemon, and hay. taste has a nice hop bite with more peppers and olives. finish is bitter and chalky. A decent pilsner with a clear American twist.

kevinator (1845) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Good version of the style. Aroma of lager yeast, grainy malts and spice. Light yellow color with a thin head. Light and clean palate with strong carbonation. This tasted like a pilsner with a slightly spicy hop bite. Refreshing and easy to drink.

Tap. Hazy straw, medium creamy white head, great lacing. Aroma is faint straw, hay, grain. Flavor follows, light light sweet, light bitter, grassy. Medium body, lingering bitter finish. Decent.

ttutony (830) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Light malty aroma with some floral and herbal hops notes. Really spot on for the pilsner style, light malt flavor with a very pleasant hop bitterness that brings spice and floral notes to the forefront. Excellent for the summer.

Real Ale brews one of the better pilsners in the US market. The aroma is rich and inviting and the carbonation not too heavy. The body is heavy to my idea of what a pilsner body should be but much closer to a true European brew than most and the brewers have achieved balance between malt and hop and hit the proper spicy note with the hop blend. The finish lingers. A good brew to sip all summer.
