A: Pours a perfectly clear copper/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Some light sticky lace is left behind.
S: Up front is spicy yeast. Floral and citrus hops are in full force. Bread and biscuit balances everything out. Very nice.
T: Follows the nose. Lots of spice and yeast. There is a large assault of citrus hops up front. Flowery and grassy hops as well. Again, plenty bread and biscuit for balance. Nuanced and enjoyable. This is very nice.
M/D: A medium body. Pretty much perfectly crisp, dry and refreshing. Very easy to drink. My pint is gone in no time, and I would have no problem quaffing a few.

Well done Real Ale. This is very enjoyable. Nuanced and subtle, just like a good lager should be. Some recurring themes, but well earned. An excellent lager, and highly recommend.

Brought to me in a shaker pint glass a lightly hazed, yellow color with a sticky coating of white foam.

Grainy, lightly malted nose with a mild grass and herb hops. Clean and very fresh smelling.

Lots of hop bitterness and leafy hop flavor. Good pilsner here, I think this one could hang with some of the better versions from PA I have had recently. Mouthfeel is good, not thin at all and pretty full flavored. I could certainly drink alot of this one.

3/29..poured from a can. Clear gold, active bubbles. Sticky white foam. Clear pilsy nose, very light. German pils taste and a firm bitter. Light citrus pokes through. Simple but good.

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!
