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

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2003
Very clear golden yellow body, mild carbonation, and tight pure white head that gradually caved and left some loose lacing. Fresh grassy European hop aroma with some nice pepper as well. Nice even bitterness with hints of butter, honey, salt, ginger spice, and pepper. A great pils.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2015 Re-rate from bottle. Pale golden, big bubbles, lacing foam. Fresh grassy and citric hop nose. Medium light body, sparkly, Very pleasant and fresh. 6 3 8 3 14 A bit soapy aroma. Low head, straw golden. Flavor is a pleasant hop composition based on citrussy notes. Lightish.

(This might get a certain credit from me in being the longest I've misplaced a rating which I can thank my dad for) Light straw color. Nice sharp hop attack. First sip comes across as being very light bodied, um, like a pils? Thinking the depiction of a hop cone on the bottle is very appropriate. Reminds me of a beer I had in Germany (not a pils) and that makes me think back to a drive to the airport in Munich just as the sun was rising, heading past fields that had all the poles and wires in anticipation of the hops. And now I'm tasting fine hops and thinking - thank you Britt.

bu11zeye (12314) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 (Bottle) Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Has a citrus aroma and a descent citrus flavor. Good pilsener.

DYCSoccer17 (3498) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Pours golden transparent with a robust frothy white head. Aroma is of citrus and yeast. Start is very bitter which smooths and then finished with a bitter aftertaste. Average. A disappointment from Victory.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2003
I'm not a huge pilsner fan, but this is good stuff. Nice yellow, with pure white head that didn't last. Citrus and hop arome is thin and almost burning. Starts with a smooth clean hop flavor that fades to a lemon bitterness that increases through out the finish. Very dry with no lingering after taste. Good with hot wings

eczematic (1322) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 2, 2003
very nicely made, does nothing wrong. very nicely structured on the palate. gives you heaps of hop flavour first up - herbs + pine (hallertau & Northern brewer?) - then grainy, honeyish malt sweetness, then long, late accelerating bitterness, leaving a grassy hop tingle behind. a bit more malt presence wouldn't go astray but this is a very classy beer.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 2, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Clear straw yellow color with big pure white head. Aroma was faint, touches of honey and spicey hops, a touch of sweetness. Flavor is somewhat bland, with a bit of malt noted upfront, and a spicey hop character, slightly sweet finish.

Volgon is telling me that i would like this a lot more if it was a burningly hot day. it's not a burningly hot day. it's a stunningly cold day. i even saw some snow falling. it had the appearance of fresh Bud. the aroma was a little different, but i didn't much care for it. it had a wincing flavor with a mild and somewhat ok aftertaste. There's a crappy chain of supermarkets around here called Victory. i bet there's a connection.

(Bottle) Thin, quick-dissipating, white head and golden body. Flavour is slightly lemon. Good hop showing. Nice citrus finish.
