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

This is my first post so i figured i would rate my favorite beer. This beer took some getting used to, as I didnt particularly like it the first time I tried it. After a few of these, it became very enjoyable. The aroma of the saaz hops are almost overwhelming but that is a good thing. The appearance was outstanding, pour this one in a glass and you will understand. Suprisingly huge overall taste, despite how clear and light it looked. A light whitish head that had a great retention. This is my favorite beer from my favorite brewery. Thanks Victory!!

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2006 Very traditional pilsener, perfectly clear golden color, soft & subtle white head, generous lacing around the glass, lots of abrasive hops in the nose, the hop character all over this beer really smacks you in the face, very hoppy flavors but incredibly smooth & drinkable, very refreshing on a hot day, clean but dry finish, excellent pils

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2007 A great summer beer, lots of hop flavor without the added alcohol of most IPAs Re-rate 5/26/07: World class pilsner, only complaint would be the borderline harsh hoppyness.

I usually do not like a strongly hopped beer, but this one was able to pull it off nicely. The biterness was complex enough to make it very drinkable. Nice crisp taste.

Very nice ’pilsner aroma’, crisp and clear golden color. A spicy flavor, that finishes pleasantly bitter. I was very impressed with this beer, as I tend to enjoy more darker beers, but this one is very nice.

A full smooth bitter flavor with unusually spicy hop flavor and aroma. A very fine brew. There is a refreshing, almost menthol character to the hops that make this brew so unique and enjoyable in the often bland world of pilsners

I’m not a big pilsener drinker, but this one is excellent. Great color & flavor. Victory beer is hard to find here in So. Calif, but this one (along w/ all their others) is worth seeking out.

Mine has only the slightest bit of haze, a nice golden color and perfect two minute white foam. The aroma is half-full but with a lucid display of freshness -- the greener qualities subverting the heavier peppery character. Wee bits of bubblegum in here. The body is a fine medium with medium carbonation and makes a solid delivery platform for crisp, clean and substantial well-balanced lightly sweet malt flavors and hardy hopping. This belches very well. In my humble opinion, among the best of its class.

This is everything I want in a pilsener, golden color, spicy hop aroma, robust bitterness and good finish. Makes me pine for the time I’ve spent in the Czech Republic, beers in the store for 10-15 cents a bottle and 50 cents in the bar. Oh well, I’d fork out the cash for this beer any day. Pity it isn’t distruibuted in Iowa.
