Sampled at le Mondial de la bière 2005. Pours a clear golden color. Appealing aroma of saaz hops with malt and citrus. Good flavor of saaz hops with malt and citrus. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Very enjoyable pilsner.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured an ultra-light, ginger-ale-yellow with an average sized, fast, white head. A skunky start faded quickly to mustiness over grainy malt aromas. A quick-drinker, this was thoroughly light & bitter with a mildly sweet finish. A damn fine beer to drink over a hot barbecue.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with lots fo carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is grainy and slightly bitter. Flavor is typical of German pilseners and somewhat crisp. Could be a little tighter, but it did taste wonderfully fresh compared to the good German pilseners I have had here.
Draught. Little more bitter and fresher flavor even still. Draught is the way this beer should be consumed!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Aroma is lemon, grassy, and a touch of spice. Pours a transparent yellow with a white head that is somewhat quickly diminishing. Lemony and grassy up front with a light-moderate hop finish. Even with the hops it’s still a pilsner and I just can’t get into the style. Yes it’s one of the better pilsners, but nothing fantastic in my opinion. For those that are a fan of the style, probably quite the find.

Gold with slightly greenish tint. NIce graininess with a little malt sweetness. This stuff is dry, hoppy, with plenty of noble spiciness. This is good pils.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2005 Golden lager with a white head that fades to lace.First smell is corn macro
followed by floral hops.Taste is a pleasing hop bittererness that really is refreshing.Its a light tasting minimal malt brew but has enough hops to keep it interesting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
okay....wow....is this the same beer that everyone else has tried? this is by no means a wonderful beer, or has any potential to be a beer in such a catergory....golden brown body that is somewhat transparent and similar to a miller high life....aroma is indistinct and is only of wheat and florals....flavor is of a light macro as well, with a touch of flowery hops...nothing special by any standards

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very pale gold with a thin snow white head. Not much head retention but some persistent lace. Fizzy but not overly so. Smells of grassy pale malt. Nice hop aromas, floral and citrus in the nose.
Taste is grassy and with a crisp, bitter hops finish. Floral and hints of grapefruit in the flavor profile. While crisp, the malt is actually a bit sticky in the mouth. I would like the mouth to be a bit more crisp and the stickiness to be muted but this is a damn tasty pilsener anyway. Really smooth and very drinkable. Oh how refreshing this beer is on a warm Georgia afternoon and oh how bitter I will be when this six-pack is gone and there is no more Victory of any kind to be found in this state.
