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

Yellow, big fizzy head. Very fruity, yeasty and sweet aroma. The body has a substantial amount of malt and smacks of American hops. There is an overwhelming amount of carbo in here and the excellent flavors that are lying beneath can’t quite escape. Too bad, i loved what was going on, but I couldn’t get past the carbo.

Very hoppy. The finish is bitter. I think the appearance is perfect.

Golden clear color. I was expecting a traditional pilsner, but the fruit overtones was surprising. Tart tastes of green apples, and spice. Good complex hops and a clean texture.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Light hazy yellow body with a quickly vanishing foamy head. Green apple notes in the nose along with clean citrusy hops. Green apple is present on the tastebuds, with a finish that is all hops. The sweet malts that do come through as it warms are fresh and sweeet, but overwhelmed and hidden by the big hops. Very good pils.

light gold with a nice white head (typical). Nice hop/bitterness to this.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 8, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2005 bottle-it has been 3 years since i had this beer. Well, i had to lower the ratings since this botte wasn’t that good really. pours a golden yellow hue with a foamy white head. Ohh no, this beer has diacytl. Since when did a victory beer have the big D? Its not overbearing, but its definately there. Some notes of bell pepper, malty sweetness, lemon and spicy german hops and yeast. Malty flavors with some notes of butter from the big D. long hoppy finish with lingering diacytl. Man, i have become very sensitive to that stuff. The body of this beer is one of the best in the style. full and rich! some nice herbal notes come out as it warms.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2003 Pours slightly cloudy and golden in color. Has a monsterous and explosive head that slowly descends leaving nice lace behind. Aroma is Hoppy, floral, maybe slightly sour. Flavor started off a bit sour (lemon), middle had some nice hops and spice to it, end was very dry, slightly bitter.

Typical Victory product. Tasty, well made, and hoppy as hell. nice golden color with cloud white head. Big hoppy, floral aroma. Incredibly hoppy taste for a pilsener which I enjoyed thoroughly. Dry, bitter finish.
