This is an Ok Pilsner. Straw, bitter, and grassy flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

This I liked. The Braumeister is very similar, though far less bitter. I felt that what this had was more body and flavor, as well as bitterness. I was happy to be able to find another nice session ale from this place. A great beer.

Tap at Victory. Slightly hoppier version of the Braumeister pilsner. I’d put them on par. Both really good for the style, but they’re still pilsners.

This is probably Victory’s most common beer. Not as flashy as HopDevil or Golden Monkey & not as rich as Storm King it can appear unadventurous. Think again because this is one tasty beer. Pour yourself a glass and right away you will see what Bud would be like if it was a good beer. This is a true pilsner.

Pours a golden colour with a big white head. Hops and some citrus in aroma. Smooth taste of malt and a nice hop bitterness. Certainly alot less bitter and lighter than I expected but nicely balanced.

Wow, this was better than I was expecting! A nice golden color with a white head. The smooth, crisp taste of a classic pils with a nice hoppiness to it that most pilseners seem to lack. It is not overpowering or strongly bitter, but takes chances and leaves you happy that you picked this one. My favorite pils so far.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 Bottled: Golden coloured. Hazy. Off white head. Grainy and hayish aroma. Some hops and fruitnotes. Is medium hopped and crisp. Some fruitnotes. Ends on a light bitter and flowery note. This might be a really good beer when fresh, but this is a little too old. Thanks Springslicker for trading. Rerated at a blindtasting by Papsoe 19th.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 Bottle. Clear golden color with a medium sized head. Mild hoppy aroma. Crisp, clean flavor of mild malt and a nice dry hoppy finish. Very refreshing beer. Next time I’m looking for a lighter beer to drink, I think I’ll have another of these.
