3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours yellow like a Pilsner should... I only drink pilsners when only macros are available, but I WILL drink this one again. After reading a few other reviews, TheHoff said it tastes like Model, and I agree... It does kind of taste like Modelo, but that was good, too.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Bottle. Pour a light golden color with a substantial long lasting white head. Excellent lacing. It carries a light grainy aroma with subtle hops. The initial flavor has a faint, sweet maltiness and closes with a dry, somewhat bitter finish. This is a light bodied pilsner that is refreshing and quite drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light and hoppy floral aroma which is quite pleasant. Yellow, slightly hazy appearance with a decent size white head. There’s a nice hop bitterness for a pilsner. Medium-bodied and lively, should be equally enjoyable for pilsner and ipa drinkers alike.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pils pours a nice golden hazy color with a small head. The nose is slightly herbal and of robust hops. Flavors of tangerine,grapefruit peel, and finishes clean and crisp. Great pils!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (bomber) poured into a tumbler (not the best way to enjoy it, I know). Pours a golden yellow with a frothy head which diminishes to a light ring of foam. Aroma of dry hops, way more intense than I could’ve imagined. Very, very floral for a pils. Light malty character. Tastes very bitter for a pils, as some other reviewers mention, to me this brew is more of an APA, even on the brink of being an IPA (the hop character is too dry for that though). Body is light with a thin texture, carbonation is lively. Moderately abrupt, bitter finish. Objectively speaking, this brew is very well done, but this is not what I had in mind when I bought this. Too intense (hoppy/bitter) for a pils. But again, not a bad beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear golden yellow, with one finger of foamy white head. Lots of bubbles flowing through the glass for as long as there’s beer in it. Smell is somewhat faint; earthy and of grassy hops. Taste is similar but much more clear; a very smooth flavor with a crisp finish of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is very thin, with medium carbonation. All around an excellent beer, and one I wouldn’t mind drinking regularly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale but beutiful and just the right amount of bitter hop malt mix for a warm afternoon... no real celebrity hop stand out but a well crafted stand by.

Think I got a bad sixer of this stuff. I just didn’t like it a whole lot. Giving Victory the well deserved benefit of the doubt, I’ve rated high (Yeah I know it doesn’t seem that way but what I got out of the bottle seemed like a macro holland import). I’ll have to re-review this later.
Light golden in color with a nice creamy white head. Sweet hoppyness in the nose bit of mown grass as well. Lots of dry hop flavor with a bit of cardboard taste in the background. Bit of veggie flavor in there also as well as a tartness that runs around the tongue.
