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

Yellow with a huge white head. Faint hop and malt aroma. Flavor is very clean. With a good balance of hops. Long bitter finish.

I was prepared for disappointment. I have consistently rated Victory products well below other raters here. I was quite pleasantly surprised. Perfect pils appearance, a restrained aroma of wheat bread, dough, and hops. The taste is fantastic. I was prepared to be bowled over by a hop assault, but this is a balanced beer. Solid malt backbone with fresh Saaz leading the charge, with a fantastic hop aftertaste. Very, very well done. Its hard to hide mistakes in a pilsner, and they have nothing to hide here. An impressive beer.

This tasted alright for about 1/4 a second until the hops taste kicked in. Bad smell, too.

pours golden, big white head. perfumy, herby, spicy hop aroma with some mild appley malty hints. the flavour starts clean and sweet malty and then comes the big punch of flowers and hops. amazing bitter finish lingers. I never thoight a pils would knock me on my ass, but this is just gorgeous.

This is an outstanding pilsner. Poured beautiful golden color with nice head that remained for quite some time leaving nice lacing along the way. Crisp full flavor. Definitely at the top of the list for pilsners. If this were available a tad cheaper I'd drink more of it. If you like pilsners, you owe it to yourself to try one, but... Nobody can drink just one!

Crisp, fruity, spicy-noble hop aroma with a hint of apple and caramel. Semi-sweet with a relatively sharp bitter finish that lingers a bit too long at first. As the beer warms it gets a bit smoother (bitterness less sharp, more caramelly/buttery/nutty flavors). Pretty great pilsner. Very enjoyable and refreshing.

I think this is an extremely under-rated beer. I never liked pilsners (or any lagers for that matter) and purposely avoided this brew. Finally, a neighbor coaxed me into trying this superb beer. I've gotta tell you that I think I this as good or better than Hop Devil!

Another high quality brew from Victory. Nice foamy white head, clean crisp malty/hoppy taste. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 2008-07-02. Crisp yellow body with a modest white head that fades. Aroma of grassy straw hops. Similar flavour has lots of grassy noble hops, pleasant bitterness throughout. Crisp average palate. Solid pilsener. 7/3/7/3/14 - 3.4Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo

Nov 2000 - Lots of hops, good for a pilsener (not one of my favourite styles). Would try it again if the opportunity arose. 7/4/5/3/11 - 3.0

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 Well this is the best American made Pilsner style beer that I’ve ever had. Good crisp lager taste and more hops than Bohemian Pilsners. They load the hopback with whole hops to get the remarkable aroma. If you like Pilsners and you like hops, you owe it to yourself to look for this beauty.
