COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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 was a pilsener. This beer easily stretches the definition of what a pilsener can be. The aroma could have been stronger and unfortunately the golden color dosen’t entice. It was just about as clear as one can get though. Has a great balance between smooth, sweet maltiness up front and the hops bitterness at the end. I can see myself repeatedly drinking this.

Bottle poured to glass. Pours bright yello with a fine haze and a small white, rocky head. Lighty toasted pale malt grain aroma and flavor. Crisp hops to the nose. Slightly sweet and acidic taste with quick mellow bitter after.

Ahhh in my mind everything that a pilsner should embody, Light in body but a delicate malty sweetness balanced by a hop spicyness. SAd I only have a six pack of this that will be slowly enjoyed, is it true that a gas station in Maine has better selection than our government controlled liquor stores? Why yes it is, damn NB LC.

Draught. Appears a light golden yellow. Perfectly clear with a small quickly dissipating head. Aroma is of malt and grassy/spicy/floral noble-ish hops with a bit of mild fruit. Flavor is doughy/malty sweet with plenty of earthy/citrussy hops to balance. Bitterness is moderate. Moderate fruity ester profile which is unusual for a lager. Body is fuller than expected from a pils and quite smooth. Great lager, with lots of hops.

I’m not usualy into pilsner or any beer this light, but this was good. Kinda like a Pilsner/IPA mix. Good light flavor, tasty hops. Victory beers rule.

12 oz bottle. Poured slightly hazy. Aroma of hops. Dry and slightly crisp. I just returned from Germany so maybe I was a little spoiled but I expected more from this beer. It was good but not as great as I had heard.

I am not a pilsner guy, so I apologize for the downgrade of a pretty solid beer. Beer pours clear, medium gold colored with a small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing head. The aroma is surprisingly malty with moderate notes of slightly husky toasted grain, toasted bread; Hoppy with moderate notes of resin/pine. The flavor is lightly sweet, moderate bitterness that grows heavy, finish is shorter—lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Nets out a touch watery. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.
