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.
