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

Draught at Churchkey. Very light body, well balanced, but overall an uninteresting and rather ordinary beer.

The hop on the label says it all -- prepare to be bombarded by the aroma and flavor of that yummy ingredient. Victory can call it a pils if it wants (and based on how it made the beer, it probably should), but the hoppiness is APA all the way. Good stuff!!

Bottle @ Ølfestival, Valby, 2009.
Pours lightly hazy golden with a nice, creamy, white head. Aroma has grain, grassy hops and light citric. Highish carbonation, super dry mouthfeel. Flavour is fresh, good hops character and soft dryness. Some sugary sweetness as well. Good pilsner.

Christian (11092) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009

12 oz bottle-pours a thin white foamy head. Color is clear yellow-light gold. Aroma is usual pilsner or lager-grain&yeast? Taste has initial ____toasty? note. Good flavor, mild, nice carbonation. Nice finish.

bhensonb (11047) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Aroma of grassy hop supported by a light malt. Pale golden color with a frothy white head that leaves shards of lacing. Slightly less than medium bodied, something of a floral and fruit hop, and the malt tends to be dominated by the hop. The finish is relatively dry and the bitter is moderate. Not quite my concept of a pilsener (floral?), but generally in line with the style. It is a mouth pleaser. It is just excellent with string cheese!

Leighton (10960) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle and Draught, many times at many places. This has got to be one of the best Pilseners. Pours a clear, light yellow with a modest, fizzy white head. Great aroma of straw, floral hops and mild malts. Flavor has light sweetness, but some very crisp, grassy hops. Light in body with fine, quenching carbonation. Finishes with some sweetness, but lots of dryness and hops. Excellent.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Clear golden color with a fluffy white head. Excellent nose of floral and spicy hops along with biscuit and bready malts. A touch of yeast with some light esters. Plenty of citrus peel and even a light earthiness. The flavor is crisp and dry. Nice cracker and biscuit malt notes balanced by the citrus zest, floral, and spicy hop flavors. A touch more bitter than you’d normally expect from a pilsener, though. Very clean and well balanced.
