Like a deluxe Lowenbrau! Very delicious and perfect in the summer! Slightly smooth and golden in a pint.

4/1/2005 - Had this slow poured for me at the Victory brewpub. Iím not normally a pilsner guy, but this was fantastic. Thick creamy head, and very smooth (you gotta do the slow pour). Unfiltered beautiful golden color. Very smooth. The best of all the Victory brews I had. Re-review 2/22/2006 - On draft at the brewery. Apparantly, they have changed the hops in this brew since my last sampling. Also, I didnít have the "slow pour" this time and I have to knock my previous 4.4 down significantly. The new Saaz hops add a really funkyness to the brew that I wasnít crazy about (but did make it quite unique). The beer is also much less smooth (maybe due to non-slow pour). This beer has gone from great to average. Blah

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.

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.

From tap a nice golden pour with a fair amount of head. Nice bitter pilsner taste with a quick finish.

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...

On tap at Hop Devil. Spicy, saaz aroma, chewy butter cookie malts. Cloudy pour. Taste has a big bite to it, mostly from the saaz, lots of biscuit, very dry.

Iím 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.
