4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2006 Sampled from growler. I’m starting to realize that a fresh Pilsner is one heck of a beer. After having so many that have been anything less than fresh it is beers like this that are making me enjoy the style more and more. Pours a lightly hazy golden straw with an average foamy white head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of pilsner malts, grains, grass, floral hops and lemon. Flavor is crisp, clean and refreshing...bitter hop presence up front, grass, malts, some grapefruit and grains. Very well done Pilsner.

On tap at Victory. Poured a medium golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of grass with some malts. Tastes of the same. I have to wonder if some of the hoppiness is starting to fade as I found both the aromas and tastes on the mellow side. Creamy body that went down very easy.

Tap. Really good Pilsner. Good golden color, could use more sparkle. Malty taste with some hops as well. The malts are really effective in the taste. This is a spectacular Pilsner in my opinion. Might be my favorite one to date.

A very intriguing beer...on tap at Victory. A Saaz aroma with a nice foamy head and a cloudy straw color. The flavor is well balanced with malt and some hop bitterness, another very intersting brew from victory

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An interesting beer on tap at Victory. Reminiscent of Prima Pils, but less bitter with more fruity esthers coming through. Much grassier as well. Slightly cloudy yellow with thin head. green malts coming through. Not horrible, not great. Decent.

On tap at Victory. Solid pilsner, which is hard for me to say. Usually this style is exceptionally boring, but this one, surprisingly, had quite a bit going on. Good bitterness for a pils.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2004 tap @ Victory. The gal said "they just tapped the keg". Decent white head but fell fairly quick, min lace, clear pale gold color, moderate carbonation. This was a nice pils. Been a long time since I had a good one. Dry, nice bitterness, It had a Hallertauer type hop flavor and bitterness ( Probably Saaz though). Very clean, fresh, and a bit nippy w a pleasant crisp sharpness. Nicely balanced with enough malt to back up the hops. Very refreshing.

On tap at the brewery. Pours pale gold with a medium head. Aroma of malt, hops, some honey. Tastes malty, with some hops, and a nice, honey malt sweetness at the finish, while retaining a smooth, crisp finish. For my money this one is more flavorful than Prima Pils. Nice balance and super complexity.
