This beer pours a nice golden yellow with a huge head even with a conservative pour.laces the glass big time,it almost glows in my pilsner glass.the appearance is the best thing about this beer.from here it goes down hill not much smell to me.the taste is a little strange to me,not bad just something's not right.the best pilsner I have had is noble pilsner from Sam Adams I also like victory prima pils but this one just seems not right.overall I would call this a good beer,it goes down good on a hot day but just falls short IMO .pilsners are such a diverse style that it makes them hard to judge to me some times it seems as if you drink one and ask yourself is this really a pilsner?

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.

Served in a tumbler.
The only Hans I know is a rambunctious ten-year-old who's likely gonna be quite the badass when he grows up. That said, this stuff right here pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light biscuit, grass, flowers, and a twinge of what almost seems like cilantro way in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, the background spiciness now less cilantro-like and more almost lime-peel-like. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a very nice pils, one I could easily see drinking many of in the cruel heas of a Texan summer.

A: A very small, quickly falling bright white head with tiny bubbles that cling to the edge of the glass and dust the top of the beer. A moderatly hazey straw yellow color that darkens in the thickerr part of the pilsner glass.
S: Very light, clean but firm noble hop aroma. Earthy, woody, spicey. Behind the hops is a sweet smelling bready aroma. Simple but effective. Very traditional
T: Firm, but moderate noble hop bitterness that is consistent with the aroma; woody and earthy from begining to end. There is a slight bready sweetness coming from the malt, but it finishes very dry so it comes off much more hop forward then balanced (in a good way). There is a grainyness to the malt aftertaste like most german pilsners. Clean fermentation and a crisp refreshing flavor overall.
M: Moderate carbonation with a light body and lower abv makes this beer very drinkable. A mild mouth drying sensation from the grainyness.
O: Noble hop forward, crisp, refreshing, trad. german pilz. I'm a big fan of this beer and the style in general.

Pours a great 1.5 finger head with great retention. The lacing is perfect. The head never dies.
Smell is a bit grainy of light pilsner malts with some noble hops underneath. A floral aroma is very present . A little bit of fruitiness that is pleasant
Taste is light grains and noble hops. The bitterness is apparent and the malt profile is clean. A fair amount of residual sugar is left to balance things out.
Mouthfeel is great. Crisp with just enough residual sugars.
Overall this is a great example of the style. Other examples of the style are a bit dryer and a little easier on the hops. I'm pleased with this interpretation.
