4.3/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours gold and slightly cloudy with a rocky white head that dissipates into a thin layer of foam, leaving modest lacing.

S - Toasty and bready with a sharp grassy hop bouquet.

T - Toasty malt sweetness is balanced nicely with an assertive hop bite.

M - Medium-bodied with a dry, hoppy finish. Hop bitterness carries over into a pleasant aftertaste.

O - This is a refreshing and flavorful pils that is perfect on a hot Texas day. Solid example of the style and highly recommended.

Serving type: on-tap

4.26/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Straw yellow pour, hazy body, ample carbonation, pure white saliva-like head.
Some grass, malts, cereal barley.
Tastes like a nice creamy pilsner with malt-soaked grains. Well-made. Nothing too distinct, but certainly drinkable and enjoyable.
Mouth feels thick and creamy given the style, refreshingly so & with a very nice citrusy hop bitterness in the aftertaste, but I most enjoy the malt/ grains at play. I can't ask for more here.
Overall, I'd go to this again even if as a sessionable brew. Almost up there with Prima for me (Where Victory's take on the style stands out with a perfectly grassy characteristic, Hans Pils to me has a character defined more by a smooth & tasty-grain type of finish). And this being canned is a plus.

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!
