COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
100% Saaz hops and floor-malted Bohemian pils malts faceoff to pack this all-Czech lager with a flavorful punch you would not expect from a brew with only 4.7% abv. Light and crisp, yet slightly herbal in its hoppiness, this extremely drinkable and delicious brew is sure to light the lamp.

Transfer from BA review on 8-12-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden straw color with a fizzy one finger white head. The head fades rather rapidly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a mix of some biscuit and a bit of lemon and earthiness. Along with these smells are some lighter notes of grain and some caramel sweetness. Taste – The taste starts out with a blend of a biscuit malt and a bit of caramel sweetness. As the taste advances a small amount of a pear and apricot fruit flavor join the taste sweetening the brew ever so slightly with a little bit of a grapefruit hop coming along to balance out the aforementioned increase in sweetness. A tiny bit of a yeast and spice and some grassy hop join the flavors at the end to leave a clean and crisp taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the thinner side overall with a carbonation level that was average to slightly above average. Both were quite appropriate for the style and made for a rather refreshing brew overall. Overall – Quite easy drinking and rather refreshing. Nothing too out of the ordinary but nice none the less.

I thot this was the best of the 4 samples I tasted at the bocktown, one mug of on tap fun each. thn head and clear almost lemon yellow. smell is clean and fresh, not bad but sterile. decent fresh taste. easy to like, gentleman. friendly overall, good beer experience. slight bitter bite but you can only perceive it near the end. I liked that.

Tmoney99 (11075) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Draft. Poured a clear pale color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral hop and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

b3shine (5829) - Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with white head. Smells doughy and lightly hoppy. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, with a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Pours a fuzzy yellow with limited head hat quickly dissipates. Tastes is solid and hits the spot in a hot day. Fine lager, but could use more hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (6946) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2013
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear yellow color. Thin white head. Few loose splotches of lace. Good clean bready aroma, lightly peppery, no off-flavors. Satisfying, but not intrusive amount of hops. Light hint of lemon citrus. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Slightly dry in the finish. Light to medium body. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Tasty, well-done pilsener. Victory knows pilseners. This is up to their standard.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Lightest gold, totally transparent, head dies like Smaragd but more effervescent. Light bubblegum esters at beginning of nose, oily pine c notes. flavor starts estery, but warmth dries it, more grass and victory grain husks through short finish. Lighty resinous for victory, lacking in richness of their best lagers, reminiscent of prima with a stronger, more resinous hop finish.
