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.

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.

rgf001 (277) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Spicy hop, noble like but not as smooth with a bit of pils bready malt aroma. Cloudy with nice head. Firm but astringent and grassy hop flavor. Malt flavor is simple. Noticeable palate astringency. Bitter finish and aftertaste.

Can at home from Blutt59 although I see from JRedmond rate below I probably had at the FF tasting at Pauls but I dumped most all those ratings due to being drunk and not rating properly. Golden pour grainy nose. Tastes of grains, lemons, peppercorn, yeast, bready. Nice crisp slightly sweet. Nice

[2015 Backlog] Can at the FF tasting at Paul’s. Pours a hazy orange body with thick white head and decent lacing. Nose is citrus fruits - oranges, grapefruit, honey and light melon. Clean biscuity malts. Mouthfeel is light bodied with notes of fresh grassy hop profile, light melon, orange slices, clean pale malt and a clean bitterness.

Clear golden with fizzy white head. Earthy, grassy aroma. Malty up front with a slightly bitter finish. Nice hoppy Pils.

phaleslu (8215) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2015
12 oz. can from arminjewell- thanks, Armin! Pours a barely cloudy bright pale gold with a big white head that leaves heavy lace and settles unevenly. Notes of straw, pale and crackery and pils malts, grass, and a hint of a spicy, salty thing that seems like chicken broth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean mouthfeel. Good pils with enough of a hint of uniqueness to set it apart.

Haslinger (901) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Not going to lie. I bought this beer solely because of a professor I had called Hans who was the MAN. His family fled Germany to Bolivia by way of Switzerland during WWII and accumulated great wealth along the way. There is more to that story than he was telling us, of that I am sure but I digress from rating this beer which is quite amazing. And made in Texas, so double down on the awesome. We’ve got a winner. Hoppy yet guzzably light. Slightly sweet in the finish with no lingering hops bitterness. An amazing beer named after an amazing man. PROST

Rated based on notes taken 1 Sep 2012 -- This is an Okay pilsner. Clean and well crafted. But nothing to keep me coming back for more.

AndresTM (423) - Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Sourdough bread, grassy hops, earthy notes, lime, lemongrass, pepper, and cereal in the nose. The mouthfeel is runny, with a thin body and lots of gas. The taste is bitter, with a citrusy tart and very subtle malty sweetness. Malty flavors of saltines and bread crust are overpowered by a dry, earthy, citrusy zest that rounds it all out nicely. Very crisp.
