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

Definately a strong pilsner. Very hoppy feel gives a great bitterness. The nose is nice and fruity, which leads to the nice citrus flavor makes is memorable. Definately a great pilsner

Hazy yellow-gold hue with a thick bright and white head. Classic saaz bitterness throughout the beer. Full bodyfeel, crisply hoppy, very grassy/earthy characteristics and a clean finish. A pleasure to drink

Citric, fruity, lightly grassy aromas, along with some faint yeast, how unusual is yeast aroma in a pils... Appealing dynamic golden yellow color, some fine haze. Carbonation and head are most impressive and the lacing is also very nice. Flavor is nicely balanced between the light but bodifying German pilsner malts and the fresh-tasting, spicy hops. Finish is on the dry side, and the malt plays its part well here, too, adding a little light, bready sweetness to the drying effect of the hops. Yeah, this is just about the best Pils I ever had. Lots going on here for that style of beer. They may be German ingredients, but they’re in American quantities!

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2002
An exciting pils, with a big sour apple and grapefruit nose. Yellow color with a thin, white head that dissapears comletely. Light, subtle malts are hidden beneath a wealth of hop flavors (grapefruit being dominant). This is one of the best examples of what citric hops taste and smell like. Finish is dry and bitter, and the beer is fairly clean overall. Big body for a pils. Nice.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2002
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 (1907) - 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.

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.
