4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
rich transparent gold, darkest of five, braumeister color, homogeneous thin white head on top. More grassy hop in nose than braumeister, less grain more dough, less citric egg. Flavor isn’t quite as full, more hop, grassy, lightest vitamin c issue mid palate, lightly oily over lips, lingering grass and hop oil finish before huge dough emerges with a bit of warmth. Bit of dry paper in end but so fucking delicate, bitter, controlled, flavorful. VICTORY!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks MrChopin. The nose is extremely dank and herbal- tea and marijuana. Grassy citrus peel and caramel malt give way to sage and rosemary, finishing with a hint of orange flesh. Light to medium palate with ample effervescence. Awesome for the style!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler thanks to MrChopin for this one! Clear, classic yellow pils pour with a big frothy head. Nose holds huge tea and noble hop nose, with the flavor bringing more soft floral and herbal notes of oregano and sage. Absolutely superb pils.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler thanks to MrChopin. Pours clear deeper gold with a larger, thick, white head with soapy retention and lace. Nose is thick biscuit, fresh grist, fresh melons, fruity noble hops, mild yellow apples. Taste is oily, quenching, grassy...a bit more body than usual for a Victory Pils with the typical ultra biscuit and grass profile desired. Really nice oil, sugar, grassy hop balance. Great stuff- not too different from the Braumeister series save for the body.

Growler courtesy of MrChopin. Incredibly hoppy and herbal aroma. Grassy and a bit sweet on the nose. Dry and hoppy. Just a touch of sweetness. Hoppy finish. Very herbal and bitter on the end.
