Hans Pils pours to a straw color with a slight haze and a nice head of foam that doesn’t hold up for long, but does offer some good lacing. The nose is unmistakably pilsner, with a scent that combines bread, earthy/grassy notes, fruit, and a touch of bitterness.
Tasting this beer again reveals its pilsner origins. The flavor combines pale malts, lightly toasted/bready notes, some earthy/spicy hops, yeast, a touch of fruit, and grains. The flavor profile is a little more bitter than other pilsners, but certainly not too bitter and it still keeps itself in- line with what one would expect for this style.
Hans Pils has a bubbly body, pleasant mouthfeel, and crispness. The bitter sensations and somewhat sour flavor could surprise some people at first, especially those who are used to plain ol’ American style, mass produced pseudo pilsners. But the overall flavor is tasty and memorable. Add everything together and you have a very respectable effort that can compete with the better American pilsners.

Appearance: Hazy straw yellow color. Hard to say what the head looks like since the bartender did an awful job pouring it. All that's left is a thin ring of white lace.
Smell: Light grainy malt and distinctive flowery/spicy noble hops. Clean, no fruity esters, no diacetyl.
Taste: Dry from start to finish. Crisp with a long-lasting bitterness from the noble hops that lasts into the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation. Low bodied.
Overall: Crisp, clean, refreshing beer that prominently features noble German hop bitterness. Loses big points in the appearance for lack of a head (maybe due to bartender error), and the hazyness. It also looses out a tad in the mouthfeel department. Still, it's a phenomenal summer beer, and at 5.3% ABV you can toss back 2 or 3 without becoming inebriated.

3.2/5 rDev -17.7%
Drank on tap at the Flying Saucer in Addison.
The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grassy and earthy hops with some flowery notes. The flavor is grapes and biscuit malt but it is very bitter. The bitterness is well above what I expect in a pilsener and detracts from the overall flavor of the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The bitterness in this beer needs to be toned way down before I can enjoy it.
