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

Bottle - Has a nice yellow, amber color. My first thought - this is great tasting beer. Though it is from a bottle, it reminds me of the quality Pils you get in the pubs in Parague. Great, great hop aroma. My only complaint is that the head dissipated quickly.

This is a great pilsener from the time you pour it out to the last drop that smacks your mouth. Great color and head with a wonderful balance of hops and malt.

Very nice on this hot day in San diego. Lively carbonation, crisp, malty, and well hopped. I like this a lot. I didn't care for the beer I drank in Prague, and I drank a lot. This is fuller, stronger in alcahol, and tastes better in almost every way

One of the better "slight to style" Pils I've tried. Bursting with Hops and definately well balanced malt v. hops. My problem is with the carbonation. Way too carbonated. Overall, one of my favorite pilsners and would drink often if they lightened up on the CO2.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Pours with a deep golden body topped by a medium thick white lasting head with a good amount of lace left on the glass. The aroma is slightly sweet yet sour with grassy hop note and a touch of malt. Bitter slightly sweet flavor with grassy hop notes and a strong bitter finish. Dry and light bodied.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2003 Really a stand out pilsener, this one! Its average appearance lulls you into a sense of complacency before a nice lemon/citrus notes in the aroma and a great hop character in the flavor, leading to a very dry and full finish convince you that this is no ordinary pils. Really a superior example from a somewhat underappreciated style and, in my opinion, one of Victory's better brews!

Sampled at the Peoria International Beer Festival. I've never really found a pilsener that I liked, that is until I tried this. Profound hop aroma and flavor, smooth texture. Piney and sappy undertones. Very pleasing.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2003 Straw golden in color. What an aroma: the beautiful smell of hops. An excellent Pilsner. Someone shoudl send a couple cases of this over to Miller so those bozo's can taste a "real" pilsner, and maybe they will stop advertising Miller Lite as one! Re-rate: just had the draught version. No real difference: both are excellent!!!

For a pilsner, this destroys the myth that only the Germans and their Eastern European cousins understand this often complex style of beer. Thick and rich palate. Crisp clean flavor and not overly hopped like many American brewers lean toward. Delicious golden color. It screams for a warm spring or summer day. For pilseners, this is one of the best. Not a hint of skunk!

Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. Pilseners are not my favorite style. This tasted like any othe German pilseners
