Poured from the can into a Libbey style pilsner glass.

Deep golden lemon, shiny, with a bit of haze to it a little, but with lots of ample rising carbonation and perfectly near spaced bubbles from the bottom. Head is bright white and fluffy at a solid three fingers. Rises with soapy retention and hang a bit with pill and some clingy lace. The body color even has a bit of green hue to it. Nearly perfect looking real impressive.

An extemely clean and very subtle classic nose. Clean malt and crisp sensing with a mild herbality. Good notes of thick bread dough and classic hinting chewy quality. Gets virtually mouthwatering after quite a few snifs.

Palate really sings. First sip fills with a bit of classic bread dough but is a bit hammered down by a controlled crisp effervescence and hop flash. Big huge lemon lime hop flavors in the mid palate, with a good rush. Chewy and crisp with a big classic density, and large almost champagne wash and dryness, but thick honey just a bit with some warmth and time to stay true to pils character.

Great flavorful and tasting pils, this one is a winner.

This is one of the very few German "style" beers that actually tastes exactly like a German beer. It very closely resembles a northern German "herbes" (=bitter) Pils. The closest German beer as a comparison might be Flensburger, also knows as "Bölkstoff", for those of you who love comic books. As a German-American Texan, I love Hans Pils.
