4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This one poured a bright goldeny yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma was of citrsuy and grasy hops, very fresh smelling, and light grain and cracker. Flavor was similar, very bright, even light tropical notes, but still towards the noble kind with great light doughy character. Another awesome german beer by victory.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour clear bright yellow with a tight white head. Nose has a moderate grain bill, a solid amount if hops. Bright grain, clean, soapy hop and a fair bit of citrus. Taste is well balanced, deep grain complexity, light bread and dough, strong citrus hop with a light herbal note. Strong carbonation with a nice light body and fairly clean dry finish.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at rrbf. This was definitely one of my favorite beers of the fest. It definitely stood out at a fest full of ba stouts and wild/sour beers. But it also stood out because it is a pilsner made by Victory brewing company, one of the best lager producing breweries in the country. Whatever this new hop is—it works beautifully in this beer. Super dry and crisp and utterly drinkable.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Transparent gold almost yellow, heavily effervescent with thin soft white head that lasts, less puffy than standard victory lager. Muted grain nose is dominated by spicy saaz. Biting flavor, strong enough grains to combat the stinging grass and fresh pine hop onslaught mid before a light playdoh and lemon sweetness overtakes the everlasting grain finish, very dry. Palate crisp, recharging without stinging. Awesome stuff, as always.

Crystal clear golden yellow body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Shows a nice blend of grass, spice and lemon zest. Light to medium bodied, lively carbonation, crisp, refreshingly bitter finish. Incredibly fresh--as expected from a Victory pils.
