11/11/11. On tap. Clear golden pour with a nice fluffy off-white head that cuts but laces plenty. Grassy, hoppy aroma with a touch of cat pee, lemon peel, and a bit of grainy malts. Nice pilsner flavor as well with grainy pilsner malts, spicy, grassy hops, and undertones of citrus and green hoppy leafiness. Nice!

Tallahassee, Fl - on tap - Fermentation Lounge. Light gold pour, snow white head, decent lacing. Lemony, sour aroma, slightly odd. Flavor is very dry, grainy, with some slightly sour vinegary notes, hint of citrusy bitterness with some malty buttery notes to balance it out. Crisp,dry mouthfeel. Not what I expected.

Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is full of hops. Citrus, light floral and fruit, some grass, and a touch of biscuit. Flavor has plenty of those fresh citrus hops, floral notes, too. Background biscuity malt lingers. Crisp lightly dry finish. Very nice hoppy pilsner.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Victory. Up on the tap list as being 5.0% abv and on their menu as 5.5%. So... Pours with a big, rocky off-white head poofing out of the becher. Nose is fresh melon, cantaloupe, pineapple, orange juice, orange blossom. Taste is crisp, doughy, quenching, full crackery malt and that typical Victory pils profile. Bitter orange and mild soapy hops. Not as intense as the Braumeister Pils but feels fresher and fruity. Not as bitter or soapy as the Braumeister. Awesome stuff.

transparent gold, thick lasting large bubbled white head, considerable lacing. Grass and citrus nose, very refreshing and soft, moderate dough. Flavor more bitter, grass, dough, and again considerable citrus, refreshing. Lively but un-distracting carbonation. Another Victory lager that’s easy to drink, amazingly flavorful, and has a wonderful malt character.

Victory does pilsners. Good stuff. Hugely floral hoppy. Light pour, nice bouquet of aromas. Just well done. I know these things aren’t hugely popular, bit this is a must try if you visit.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a small wispy white head. Very bready pils malt nose with some light hops, a touch of light sulphur. The flavor is nicely hoppy and fresh with a moderate bitterness level. Bready and doughy malt base. Nicely grassy and with that light hint of sulphur that works really well. Light bodied, a touch clingy and doughy with perfect fine fizzy carbonation. Very nice.

On draft at Taproom in PB. Wow, this is a Pils?!? Color is golden with a slight haze and no head to speak of. Okay, I get the pilsner character in the aroma, toasty, lightly grainy malts with a hint of soap but a brash, citrus hop profile that also features herbal hints. Flavor also betrays the pilsner pedigree, aligning with the characteristics described earlier, hops dominate though, with an orange and grapefruit juiciness. Palate is light to medium in body, with assertively prickly carbonation. Overall an enjoyable and briskly refreshing brew.
