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.

Assertively hopped...Way to go VBC! This is a masterpiece of a pilsner! It's a perfectly refreshing compliment to a warm summer day spent outdoors.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2003 Yellow/gold color with a huge frothy head like a root beer float. Easily one of the best Pilseners I've had. Smooth, more hops than average, and the dry finish is nice.

Pours a rich golden hue with frothy white head. Strong smell of floral hoppiness accompanied by a faint spicyness. Crisp, clean combination of malt and hops with the hops delivering a dry, bitter finish. Goes down smooth. Excellent!

Rack up another triumph for the folks at Victory Brewing, this was the best pilsener I've ever had. Very smooth yet full of taste. Amazing mixture of malt and banana I believe.

easily the best pilsner i've ever had. Average pilsener color and aroma, but a great smooth flavor that was very drinkable and very complex at the same time... definately a keeper
