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

Good pilsner. Sufficient maltiness, with pronounced hops, but certainly not too bitter or over the top. Has the classic pilsner smell to it. Sadly, it is a pilsner and is probably incapable of getting a high rating from me.

This was a very good pilsener. The taste was full of hops and refreshing, and this is definitely a beer I will try again.

This was a little more then average pilsner due to its bigger bite and flavor. Color was a cloudy yellow, no head, just some light fizzy bubbles on the top. Light minimal lacing in spots. Smell was a bit bitter from a fresh hop and some sweet maltyness. You could tell it was gonna have some bite just from the smell. Which it had, some favorable hop bite and bitterness, not bad, could've been smoother for a pilsner. I liked it more as it went along. Its a pretty decent pilsner and quite drinkable. The bite is right, but a little much for a pilsner in my book.

Clear golden color with a thick white head. The aroma was strong...pepper, hops, sweat sock, herbs, flowers. The flavor was equally substantial...pepper, tons of hops...cigarette ashes, herbs. Crisp, tight feel...dry finish. This is certainly the best pilsner I've ever had...or could ever imagine.

This is a very good pilsner...clean and crisp. Nice golden color with lots and lots of hops!! Yet again another wonderfully crafted beer from Victory! Keep the Victory beers coming!

Very strong aroma of hops. Gold and cloudy like a wheat beer. Crisp bitter taste with lots of hops and some clove. Thin. I like a pilsener, but I can't find what everyone is enjoying so much in this beer.

Straw colored with fresh hop aroma. Clean, bitter refreshing taste. Hop heaven. Strikingly good pilsner.

For me, this is a true pilsner. A beautiful head and a somewhat cloudy body. Everytime I have this beer the first sip is never quite like the rest. The hops really stand out in this beer. Bag the wheat beers, and drink this all summer.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 Enjoy by 11-21-05.It seems after doing some pilsner soul searching, I find that this pils reminds me way too much of a heady heineken or something.Tupper’s Hop Pocket Pils is king along with the Troegs Sunshine Pils.Don’t get me wrong now,I Love Victory! Just not my favorite pils~
