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

A very well crafted pilsener. I really enjoyed the fresh tasting hop notes, and the beautiful golden color and rocky head.

Wow, One of the best Pils I have ever tasted. A beautiful balance of superior hops and malt. Very crisp and refreshing. Great Job.

While I’m not a fan of pils, this rendition is solid. Pale golden color. Pours with a big foamy white head. Flowery, bright, hoppy nose. Light and crisp on the palate. Medium hoppy, crisp, bitters taste. Seems a bit one-dimensional, still a good choice for those seeking a light and refreshing beer. Good BBQ beer.

Great pils...there’s a great hop bite to this one. Well balanced with a strong bitter finish.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2006 Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Quite yeasty/unrefined. Not a very good example IMHO.

This was a pilsener. This beer easily stretches the definition of what a pilsener can be. The aroma could have been stronger and unfortunately the golden color dosen’t entice. It was just about as clear as one can get though. Has a great balance between smooth, sweet maltiness up front and the hops bitterness at the end. I can see myself repeatedly drinking this.

Lovely floral hoppy aroma and pure pils color. The flavor when right out of the fridge has an astringent quality. When it warms up a bit it loses the astringency, but also some of the flavor. There’s definitely a strong hoppiness, but it’s not quite the quality I seek. Good, but not great.

The hop on the label says it all -- prepare to be bombarded by the aroma and flavor of that yummy ingredient. Victory can call it a pils if it wants (and based on how it made the beer, it probably should), but the hoppiness is APA all the way. Good stuff!!

Bottle. Wow! A huge frothy white head on a bubbly golden pilsner. A wonderful crisp and dry beer with enough hops to make it kick. Stands above other beers in this style.
