3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2015 Bottle in pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage, Dover NH. Aroma is bready malt with yeasty dough, leather and basement, mild burnt herbs. Appearance is clear pale yellow with greenish tinge (a little urine-like) with persistent but mild sparkle and small head with fair persistence and mild lacing. Taste is medium bitter and sour. Palate is medium bodied with oily texture with lively carbonation and long very dry finish. Overall, an interesting smelling beer with capable other aspects. A good offering for the style.

Had on draft at Tap & Handle. Pilsner malt is in both the aroma and flavor. There is a firm floral hop aroma, fruity, sweet malts, grainy, light bitterness in the finish, honey. This is a tasty beer.

Bottle. Pour is clean gold with a nice white head. Aroma and flavor are so clean and enticing with floral hop notes and light clean malty notes dominating. Also a touch of yeast in there. Love this beer.

Bottle into tulip. Golden. Grassy, malty, bready floral aroma and taste. Something else unique and enticing that I can't identify. Smells and tastes like a lazy late summer afternoon. Great Pilsner.

Pours clear yellow, little head. Aroma grassy, biscuity. Taste is balanced maybe a touch of caramel with hops behind. A good clean lager.

Classic American craft lager, I assume this was a bold reaction against the culture of bland mass-marketed pale lagers at the time. Bottle bought at GBBF and consumed at home. Medium sized, yellowish white, regularly shaped head, colour a deep and bright yellow golden, clear with quiet sparkling. Lovely American hops aroma, impressions of lemon zest, starfruit, yellow grapefruit, field flowers, fresh cucumber, hint of pine resin, unripe pineapple, even a touch of lavender, white bread. Crisp, clean onset, minerally fizz but refined, smooth honeyish malt sweetishness, touch bready, shifting to a relatively long hoppy finish, very aromatic with delicate citrus peel and flower notes, very subtle salty edge but most of all deeply bittering and drying the throat in a non-agressive, elegant way. Must have been one of the first ’IPLs’ (India pale lager), the kind of ’boutique Pilseners’ delicately hopped with IPA hops and thus making a statement that pale lager is able to achieve great finesse as well. Lovely, almost ’feminin’ kind of graciousness, this is the kind of pale lagers that should be a lot more on the foreground in craft beer culture.

Tap@gallows. Yellow golden, clear. Light old bready pils malty nose, some honey, herbs. Med light bodied, herby, quite nice wet/bushy hoppy flavour. Bit murky bready, but I like the hops here.

빅토리 브루 - 빅토리 프리마 필스 5.3% ABV 마시기 쉬운 술로 알려진 필스너의 아로마, 바디, 테일의 개성을 모두 증폭시킨 힘있는 필스너. 금주법 시대 이전의 라거-필스너맛& 유추할 수 있는 좋은맥주
확실히 체코 필스너 보다 훨씬 선이 굵고 비트 버거 같은 독일 필스너 보다도 두껍다. IPA좀 그만 수입하고 이거 좀 들여오면 좋겠다. 사츠와 북독일산 홉 사용, 맥주 평론가 마이클 잭슨 아저씨도 좋아하는 맥주.

(Keg at Konttori, Tampere, 20150808) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass and grain, both mild. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was grassy and bitter. A harsh pils.
