3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

On tap at the Hop Devil Grill. Cloudy straw yellow with a smooth white head. Light, wheaty lemon nose. Creamy lemon parfait with a nice tang. Lime sneaks in with bready drying. Medium carb, medium light, but eminently drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Issacs with Stegosaurus. Golden Pour with thin white head. Barely any aroma but a mild hop presence is detected(Very Mild) Slight citrus/ floral taste. A little bland and a little thin for my taste but not horrible.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the mellow mushroom in Charlotte. Pours out a murky yellow with a big white head. Smell is very nice of subdued hops and some startchy aroma that was very pleasing. Taste is heavier than expected than expected but still clean. I liked this alot. Mouthfeel is thicker than one would think as well and lets you know that there is something to this beer. Flavor hops and bittering hops come well together and the carbonation seemed just about perfect. Definatley would have this again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the mellow mushroom in Charlotte. Pours out a bright yellow color with a huge thick white head on it. Smell is hops, bread, some wheat? and plenty of malts. Taste is sweet but not as crisp and refreshing as prima pils is. Pretty thick in most ways, interesting, and my first of this style. This would probably be pretty good in the middle of the summer. Not bad

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grassy hopped aroma smells just as it tastes, but with a bready flat flavor beneath the bitterness. Not my favorite style, but certainly a reasonable example thereof.
