Pale gold color, hazy. Lots of bubbles rising. Nice bright fluffy head. Leaves a good amount of lacing behind.

Fresh lemony aroma. Lots of hops. There some sweet malts, but mostly hops.

Starts off very hoppy, mostly lemony, spicy and grassy hops. Sweet pale malts in the background, slight honey. Clean-bitter finish. Body is light and crisp, carbonation is very active.

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.

Pours a very pale yellow color with a thin white head that quickly disappeared. The aroma is nice and grassy with a hint of lemon and grain. It tastes pretty much the same with grassy hops and a hint of lemon and grain, really not much else, but very nice in aroma and taste. The beer is medium bodied with a good amount of light carbonation and a dry finish.

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!

A – The color of the beer is a soft gold with a light haze to it. There is a nice stream of bubbles as well. The head is white and frothy with excellent retention and build. The head leaves plenty of sticky lacing.

S – The nose is semi bitter with hints of grains and a nice twist of lemon towards the end.

T – Taste is bitter..but more floral than anything. Lemon comes through mixed in with all sorts of grains. There is a dry wheat character that seems to stick around almost to the end. It’s a very natural taste.

M – The mouth feel is pretty damn smooth and crisp. Goes down nicely with tingly carbonation.

O – No complaints at all on this one. Every aspect of this beer is top notch. Great example of the style. I’m very happy to be able to get my hands on this on.
