Citrus and floral aromas mingle with spice in this single hopped pilsner. Flavors of bread and grain are balanced with a pleasant bitterness, finishing with crisp and mildly spicy notes.

On Tap at BitterCreek Alehouse Basic pale soft malt flavors pils. Not as interesting or as good as their others. Still balanced and good.

[ keg ][ 6oz ][ @Victory as "CBC Saphir" ][ $2 ][ mini flute ][ 04.30.16 ]
transparent gold, 0 effervescence, oily white cap. More dough less ester than tettnanger. Bitter victory pils grains in nose, bringing me back. Dusty bitter front palate, tons of grass and hay rusticity, low sweetness. Still muted but way better than the CBC tettnanger.

PhillyCraft (5736) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Tap at pour house, Clearish gold shade, well carbonated, nice malt grain and light flower hop. A touch bitter, really balanced and well done crisp Pilsner. Victory needs to make more of this and less of their hoppy offerings.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Pours a clear pale yellow with a large, creamy white head...lively...nixe retention and lacing. Aroma has a nice balance between slightly sweet grains/cereal and mild grassy/spicy hops. Flavor or follows suit...nice hops character that has just a hint of melon and rind to go with grassy/spicy noble hop - like characteristics. Mouthfeel is full and silky with a dry rindy/spicy/minerally finish. Another awesome Victory pils.

Scouser (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Pours a nice gold colour with a little white head and lacing. Earthy, belgiumy aroma, with citrus tones, even hints of lavender. Begins malty, has a floral citrus hop in the middle, again hints of lavender. finishes dry almost nutty. I like this beer a lot. Nice easy drink.

callmemickey (4251) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
A: Clear golden-orange, moderate white head good lacing S: Nice european floral hops, light citrus notes.. T: Floral hops come through at the beginning, good citrus hints... nicely balanced with the malt base M: Smooth, crisp, light bite at the finish. Medium-light body. O: Easy drinking. I prefer the Saphir pills over the Hallertau pils. Nice addition to the lineup at Victory
