UPDATED: JUL 19, 2005 bottle-it has been 3 years since i had this beer. Well, i had to lower the ratings since this botte wasnít that good really. pours a golden yellow hue with a foamy white head. Ohh no, this beer has diacytl. Since when did a victory beer have the big D? Its not overbearing, but its definately there. Some notes of bell pepper, malty sweetness, lemon and spicy german hops and yeast. Malty flavors with some notes of butter from the big D. long hoppy finish with lingering diacytl. Man, i have become very sensitive to that stuff. The body of this beer is one of the best in the style. full and rich! some nice herbal notes come out as it warms.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2003 Pours slightly cloudy and golden in color. Has a monsterous and explosive head that slowly descends leaving nice lace behind. Aroma is Hoppy, floral, maybe slightly sour. Flavor started off a bit sour (lemon), middle had some nice hops and spice to it, end was very dry, slightly bitter.

Typical Victory product. Tasty, well made, and hoppy as hell. nice golden color with cloud white head. Big hoppy, floral aroma. Incredibly hoppy taste for a pilsener which I enjoyed thoroughly. Dry, bitter finish.

Another good Victory Brewing product.
Smells good. The bottle I just opened
almost sounded like a champagne bottle
upon opening. Highly carbonated and pours
the biggest head of any brew I have seen.
Wonderful hop, kinda spicy flavor with a dry
finish. Very good pils.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2010 Spicy, grassy hops on a soft cereal carpet...Dry feel of hay accompanied by a light herbal note and an eagerness to try more...This is a superbly efficient trip to Bavaria...

This stuff is great. Sharp, crisp, and hoppy. Probably the best pilsner not actually from the Czech Republic.

I dig the cloudiness compared to other pilsners. Definitely the best pilsner Iíve had. Not skunked out. Has a lemony flavor. Good all around.
