COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: 2 row German pale malt; Czech Saaz, German Northern Brewer hops.
Heaps o’ hops are hiding under the full, frothy head of this elegant Pils. All German malt subtleties linger beneath a long dry finish of this classy quencher. One of Michael Jackson’s 500 Classic Brews

I'm not a huge pilsner fan, but this is good stuff. Nice yellow, with pure white head that didn't last. Citrus and hop arome is thin and almost burning. Starts with a smooth clean hop flavor that fades to a lemon bitterness that increases through out the finish. Very dry with no lingering after taste. Good with hot wings

very nicely made, does nothing wrong. very nicely structured on the palate. gives you heaps of hop flavour first up - herbs + pine (hallertau & Northern brewer?) - then grainy, honeyish malt sweetness, then long, late accelerating bitterness, leaving a grassy hop tingle behind. a bit more malt presence wouldn't go astray but this is a very classy beer.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Clear straw yellow color with big pure white head. Aroma was faint, touches of honey and spicey hops, a touch of sweetness. Flavor is somewhat bland, with a bit of malt noted upfront, and a spicey hop character, slightly sweet finish.

Volgon is telling me that i would like this a lot more if it was a burningly hot day. it's not a burningly hot day. it's a stunningly cold day. i even saw some snow falling. it had the appearance of fresh Bud. the aroma was a little different, but i didn't much care for it. it had a wincing flavor with a mild and somewhat ok aftertaste. There's a crappy chain of supermarkets around here called Victory. i bet there's a connection.

(Bottle) Thin, quick-dissipating, white head and golden body. Flavour is slightly lemon. Good hop showing. Nice citrus finish.

Uninspired…Sketchy aroma, light yellow coloring with a nice head. Overly bitter and slightly off balance. Not bad, but I expected better.

Golden colour with nice frothy head. Dry malt aroma with some german hops. Dry bitterness coming from Saaz hops (?)which lingers pleasantly. A classic pils.

Pilseners. Not my favorite style, but this one was good. Victory just takes a style of beer and runs away with it. I love these guys. Great reproduction of a pils. Slight lingering pils bitterness was nice. Pils!

I was disappointed in this beer. I was looking for more noble hop flavor and aroma. It had a grapefruit aroma and flavor that reminded me more of cascade and chinook hops. I was expecting a crsip german or czech style hop in this beer. To be fair this beer was getting towads the end of it's date code. I will have to try another one that is fresh and not as old.

Clear golden color with a brilliantly white head. Aroma of bread and hops. Smooth and dry on the palate with a gentle carbonation. A nice balance of malt and hop flavors. Good stuff!
