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.

Very bright, clear, golden straw pour. Big white head with a lot of carbonation. Classic lager aroma with a bit of additional hop earthiness. Very bready aroma. A lot of complex flavor for a beer so light. The malty breadiness is the biggest component of the flavor. Mild earthiness from hops. Finishes pretty dry and bitter. ---Rated via iPhone

7/10/2014. From can. Golden yellow with a white head. Fresh hoppy aromas, grain, hay, spice. Good malt balance with hops very present all the way. Pretty good stuff.

ttutony (634) - 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.

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

This one really surprised me a crisp mildly bitter pils that is right on for the style. Taste like it came straight from germany
