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.

Poured into my Konigsbacher pilsener glass: light yellow with a full white head. Streaming carbonation. Tettnang hop aroma reminds me of some of the best German pilsners without the skunkiness one might find there. Crisp flavor, bitter finish. This is an outstanding beer. I enjoy a pilsner once in a while and this is very good.

Real Ale’s Hans Pils has a thin, stark-white head and a very hazy, yellow-golden appearance, with some streaming bubbles and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet bread and light malt. Taste is of prominent, grassy hops and sweet, floury biscuit. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Hans Pils finishes crisp, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. This is great beer! RJT

Clear gold with a nice white head. Aroma of grass, grain, and light citrus. Very hop forward; quite bitter for the style. Light bodied.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Sample at Flying Saucer in Austin. Pours a clear pale yellow color with rising bubbles and a medium white head that evaporates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of herbal hops and malt. Light, crisp body with flavors of mildly spiced hops, malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is lightly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent all around.

Poured up a clear gold with a very nice head that dropped to a thin head that held on. Smells of hops and slight grain. Didn’t expect much since I am not a big fan of pilsners but the taste kind of suprised me. Has a really nice spicy hop flavor that would rival some of the IPA’s I have been drinking lately. Small grainish taste in the background but has nice clean finish. Enjoyed this 6 pack while kicked back in the pool. Really went well on this hot summer day.

I didn’t like this as much as most.. great aroma - malty grass and light citrus - even a creamy aroma somehow. piss pale color. Flavor is hops hops and bitter hops - too many and too much for my liking un balanced.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Hazy yellow gold in color with an average white head. Aroma is of floral hops, light mint, and lemon. Taste is of grass, heavy lemon, malt, floral. When this stuff is fresh, it is quite good.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, luminescent gold with a high, even head. Nose is apple, citrus, whole-grain bread. Hops punch on the front, then a honeyed sweetness followed by a touch more hops on the close. Incredibly well-balanced. I could drink a lot of this beer.
