It smells like p***y, but maybe thats just my fingers ’cause this beer will get it for you... Not only does it enhance your reproductive desirability to the opposite sex, but these pils actually tastes good too! I am expecting desirable results and my partner is overcome with multiple sucsessful excitements already before! - Rick Perry "Almost perfect" - BeerZack

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is exactly what I want. A refreshing beer with great hop flavor. The beer is pale golden in color, it’s cloudy and pours with a nice one inch pure white foam head. The natural carbonation holds a good head. The aroma is crisp, clean malt and earthen mineral, with some grassy, sweet-tingey hops. The taste is refreshing, medium-full, mineral, and deliciously bitter. The finish is decidedly bitter. The beer is non-skuny as most good pilseners are in the US since they must be imported. The beer has a quick, refreshing bite, and exhibits beautiful carbonation in the glass. It leaves an intricate lacing on the glass as you draw it down... always a good sign. This beer is going to make August in Texas rock! Hans’ Pils may have just unseated Urquell and Heineken as my favorite pilsener beers, and the best part... it’s brewed right here in my own back yard. I hope Real Ale bottles this great beverage.

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.

One of the best seasonals in Texas. Wonderful hop aroma with a solid pils malt background flavor is refreshing with a solid hop flavor and bitterness. Very refreshing in the hot Texas summer.

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!

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.

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.

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
