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

Poured a light gold topped with a nice foamy head with very nice retention.Slight grassy aroma that was overpowered by citrus.Everything I’ve heard about this beer had my hopes high for a really great pilsner but I was sadly disappointed.Taste was much too bitter and tangy .kinda like orange juice.Sorry .but there are much better pilsners out there.

I drink this all the time, but never bothered to rate it before, inching my way to 100, I figure why not. Anyway it has a saaz aroma right off the bat and pours out a golden yellowish color with a big fluffy white head. It has a nice pilsner taste, not at all skunky like other main-stream pilsners. Nice and smooth, wonderful beer for any occasion.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 Pours a golden yellow hue with a large frothy white head. Aromas of slight pine, hops and citrus. Flavors are fairly hopped, yet balanced with flavors of pine, mint, and a little lemon. This is probably the best pilsner known to man kind and is probably in my top 50.

This is a great pilsener (I’m enjoying this reminder) ... smooth, delicate, slightly sweet. The ending is rather bland and leaves it somewhat short. Overall though another offering from Victory that gets two thumbs up ... they’re not way up though which means there is some room for slight improvements.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Poured a murky yellow with a huge frothy white head that left a thick lacing on the glass. The aroma is rather citrusy and floral, with a subtle sweetness to it. The taste is unique. Very little sweetness, but with a citrus fruit character with a very very dry and hoppy finish. Complex enough, but probably not my preferred style.

Cloudy white lasting head on top of a golden coloured brew. Sticky lacing as well. Floral, fruity aroma, citrusy orange, with a prominent spiciness as well. Nice balance of flavour between malt and hops. Malty sweetness up front with a hint of light caramel. Spicy hop flavour and a nice lingering bitterness. Quality stuff... wish I had some more.

pours a nice yellow, Good head. Callisic finish. A great Pils, I am luck to have a great Beer MECCA like Andy’s in bogota to get all these great brews on tap, with an ever changing selection.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Pours a "lemon-yellow" with a small/medium white head that stays around. Aroma is citrus and a little bit of hops. Flavor is actually "malty", was expecting hops. Palate is good, overall a nice beer. Thanks goes to Springs Licker for this tasty brew! :)

Been looking for a bottle of this for a long time. Many people have remarked how such and such gourmet Pilsner "tastes like a Pils should." I won’t say that, but I will say this is an unique impression of a Pils that is much more than valid. The hops are well woven in, keeping the beer up without being heavy. Nice spit-cream surface to the beer that remained throughout the drinking of it. Looked enticing.

Crisp pils with fruit, lemony citrus. Like a fruit wine. Good straightforward pils, for a change. Good hops. Wasn’t very popular, but I appreciated for the style. Aah refreshing! Smooth, not much to look at. Thanks Mr_kimchee for the sample.
