Love this offering from Victory. Hoppier than the average Pilsner for sure, but still refreshing. The hop presence is floral and absent of much bitterness at all. Incredible beer to drink on a warm day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes: Poured hazy straw color, with a 1-finger white head. Light lemony aroma with some grass mixed in, pretty much like the stereotypical pilsner. Light body, with a dry finish. Flavor is earthy up front, giving way to lemony citrus and some yeast at the back. Not really a pilsner fan, but pretty good.

5.5% from Sugaya. A clear very pale gold with a thick foamy head. My wife is enjoying it & downing it fast... A clean hop aroma, I am getting a real Saaz vibe from it. The flavor is grassy but bitter, very dry. Kind of one dimensional compared to other top pilsners I have had but still quite good. A nice body, smooth, biscuit, grass, hay then bitter hops. Nice stuff.†

Pours a clear light gold. Has a strong corn and cheese aroma. Taste is simiale to any pilsner but with some wheat and cheese flavor. Interesting beer...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of wheat and bread with a little celery and cheese. A large fizzy white head that lasts. Clear yellow. Medium body with thin texture. The finish is slightly metallic and bitter. A nice refreshing beer when you want something light.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best by October 9th 2013... since thatís five months away, my assumption is that this beer is probably very fresh.
Appearance: It looks like any other pilsener would -- a crystal clear yellow color. As many would affectionately refer to it as, it looks like piss. Not much lacing small white ring on top. Looks pretty ordinary.
Smell: A lot of hay, and also grain. As thereís a big hop on the logo of this beer, I was expecting a pretty nice hop presence, and there *is* one. Itís not so big that it morphs this into some sort of pilsener/IPA hybrid, but itís more than welcome -- especially in the taste.
Taste: Yeah, probably the best pilsener Iíve had. It has that typical flavor youíd expect from a pilsener, but the hops lift it up a little bit. This is the most bitter beer Iíve had from the style, but itís not extreme, which I wouldnít expect. The amount of hops here compliment everything nicely. This is definitely a pilsener for hopheads. The mouthfeel is relatively thin, but has a nice body, given the style. A very good choice for a summer beer.
Not a *super* interesting beer, but itís above average for a pilsener. Iím not nearly as high on this beer as the majority of reviewers, but itís still well worth trying out.

Bottle. Medium yellow with average sized foamy white head. Fresh cut grass, grain, and light herbal bitterness. Light in flavor with just the slightest bitterness to finish. Smooth drinking, just heavier than water with very fine carbonation.
