3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught: Very slight floral hop aroma. You could barely smell anything it was so faint. Poured golden in color with a medium-sized, rocky, white head that lasted pretty much throughout. Very good lacing. Hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is quite bitter. Tastes hoppy with Pils malts, hops, and a fruit I cannot identify, but with a earthy horseblanket and funk backbone. Light to medium body. Sticky texture. Lively carbonation. Short, bitter finish. Overall, fresh and tasty, but quite earthy. A nice way to get into this style of Lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Tria. Advertised on the menu as "VICTORY BRAUMEISTER SESSION PILS" with 4.7% ABV. Hazy straw color, with a moderate sized off-white head. Very subdued malt aroma with mild hops and some grassy notes. Crisp, floral hop flavor with some honey and fruit; i got a slight hint of raspberry jam along with the hops. Finish is a bit earthy. Overall, very drinkable. It really hit the spot on a hot Philly evening.

Golden color - aroma is bready with some pleasant citrus notes. Taste was heavy on the citrus with a nice pils malt and subtle Saaz hop flavor. Still prefer the fresh hop version, but I still say Victory makes the best Pilses in the US.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Hop Devil Grill - Lightly hazed gold, fizzy white head. Bready nose warms to further notes of lemon rind, citrus, and hints of pepper. Well balanced between the lemon zest, light yeast, and peppered citrus. LIght to medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry fruity finish. Could pound these all day...

I’m pretty sure this is the braumeister that I tried, and not the harvest pils. anyway very light in colour, body was good, had a nice hop to it towards the end and a bit of a citrus bite.

Draft at HDG. Cloudy yellow with a small but durable head. Aroma is nice sweet malts with Saaz. Nice and bready taste with a nice, dry finish. This is an awesome brew and IMHO a tad better then Prima.
