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 nice beer. Not really much like a Pilsner. In a tasting with some colleagues it beat Pilsner Urquel stone cold dead, but not sure how it would have done against a real Pilsner Urquel draft in Berlin or Prague a dozen years ago. This seems to be as far from real Pilsner as the stuff that Urquel and Budvar sell in the US now, but in the other direction. If I had to pick I would choose this one, but it is a bit overhopped for the type.

pours a clear but ordinary legal-pad yellow (if legal pads were clear that is, but things legal are seldom clear); the head graced my glass briefly with a wispy yin and yang symbol; pretty, but as thin as my chances of dating angelina jolie. i honestly wasn’t dazzled by the aroma at first, but i kept at it, sniffing and swirling ’till i was lightheaded. finally i opened a goose island pils AND a gordon biersch pils to taste beside it. suddenly, it all became clear: this one has subtlety and elegance, it’s more sweetly yet delicately perfumy than the rivals, (tho the goose island is a close second). clean, with d’anjou pear, swiss cheese, and dry white wine aromas. a very smooth, full tongue bitterness just slightly edges out the staid malts and minimal sweetness. the snap of those saaz hops is remeniscent of the old pilsner urquell. and hey, after finishing those three beers, my chances with angelina suddenly seem much brighter. hic.

Clean, crisp, hoppy, all the things I’ve come to expect from well made American craft Pilseners in general and Victory specifically. Big white head, firm body and a suitably bitter finish.

One of the better pilseners that I’ve had. Nice finish.

Sweet bread and sugar pops cereal(?) in the nose. Crisp tiny bubbles. Very smooth and drinkable, slighty bitter finish.

Huge hop nose and flavor. The hops are floral, herbal, pine and spruce by turns and the finish long and bitter. At the right temperature, the malt comes out and actually enhances the wonderful hop experience. Very similar to Tupper Hop Pocket. Both outstanding.

Yummy....great Pilsner from Victory. Pours a golden yellow color with a large white head. Thirst quenching indeed, this one goes down smooth. Re Rate: I just got some more of this and it is fantastic. I had to bump up the aroma and flavor points because I had it rated too low.

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!
