On-tap at the Draughthouse in Austin.
Han's Pils pours with a brassy, copper-blonde body that sports a healthy cap of off-white bubbles. Good retention, and the lacing is superb, as the pint glass is coated by thick webs of foam. Grassy aroma, sharp and floral with a sublime balance of Pilsen malt. A bit of bready yeastiness in the background. Really nice so far.
The flavor is everything the aroma promised, and more. Sharp, crisp German hops bite the palate with notes of fresh grass and bitter resin. Hops linger long into the finish like a good IPA, but never are the malts pushed the background, instead balancing nicely with cracker and bleached flour. Uber-clean with no off-flavors. Mouthfeel is superb: light-bodied, well-carbonated, and effortlessly drinkable on a hot Austin day. Han's Pils is easily one of THE best American-made German Pilseners I've come across. Gives Victory's Prima Pils a run for its money.

6 pack for around 10 bucks. The first year they bottled it! Third year as Summer seasonal.
Just higher on the ABV and IBUs than BJCP Guidelines, but I certainly don't mind. This is probably the hoppiest Pils I've ever had.
Bright, hazy, golden yellow with full white head. Excellent head retention. Reminds me of Duvel.
Big nose of freshly cut grass, flowers and cilantro.
Vibrant hop character. Clean and raw.
Big oily mouthfeel wih dry finish. Lingering bitterness.
I really can't find anything wrong with this. Good fix for hop heads, super drinkable. The only Pils I can think of liking more is the Victory Braumeister series. Okay I thought of something wrong with it - it doesn't stay in the glass long enough...it does leave a lotta lacing though.
