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 may well be a perfect beer. From the bottle to the glass, it screams ’drink me’. There is a floral/spicy mouthwatering aroma. Wonderful. And the taste is pilsner perfection. A beautiful meld of hops and clean malt flavor. This beer is a must-have.

My second favorite beer to drink. My first is Vicotory’s Hellerbock. There is nothing more refreshing than drinking a tall cold Prima on a hot humid North East summer day.

Build like the classic pilseners of Pilzen! Great summer beer with excellent color and balance of hops. Excellent from the tap, still good from the bottle.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 Pours light golden color with a head. Crisp and herbable aroma. The flavor is awesome; very crisp, spicy (from the hops), clean and dry finish. One of the best pilsner I ever had. Really enjoy it.

Aroma: This is in fact a pilsner, weird cause it smells like an amazing IPA! Huge citrus hops on the nose, like a bouquet of freshly picked backyard hops thrown into one of those fizzy yellow beers we’re all supposed to dislike. Very impressive! Appearance: A nice pale straw to golden color with tons of CO2 bubbles fighting their way up the glass to escape. The head is maintaining a sturdy two finger height despite my best efforts to restrain it to fit in my favorite pils glass. A very nice champagne looking pils. Taste: Wow hops! This beer should be its own style IPP because I don’t know if you can have this much hop character, at least the huge fruity hop kind, in a pils. After the blast of hop flavor a very pleasant malt accent comes through lending a bit of rich and delicately sweet flavor to balance all those alpha acids. Then the beer hops your face off again. Palate: Light and spritzy on the palate due to the great acidity and carbonation. This lager is very light in body and left my mouth very refreshed and yearning for another sip. Overall: The best pils I’ve ever had, ever. This beer has so much character and flavor it could be overwhelming to find it in a pils but the balance of flavors comes together to create on extremely hoppy and satisfying lager!

Superbe bière blonde, très bonne saveur de houblon, goût très spécial jamais vu ailleurs. Dégucté à la brasserie Victory en Pennsylvanie.

Bottle. Hazy straw yellow pour, white bubbly head. Aroma of crisp grassy hops, faint bit of must in the malt, citrus rind/light fruit. Flavors of dry malt with a decent bit of grapefruit/citrus rind come into play, a slight earthiness/must is apparent as well. Light bubbly body, crisp/bitter/malty throughout with a dry lingering bitter finish. Overall, this is one of my top three session beers: it’s bright and crisp and overall just a very satisfying brew that I drink regularly all year round. This coupled with a very fair price point makes it a hard beer to beat. Most definitely my favorite summer brew as well as my favorite pilsener. I don’t see what there is to not love about this beer.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 The most delicious beer I’ve ever tasted! Wonderfully hoppy, bitter, and crisp flavor that is not too heavy, nor spiced.

This is my favorite pilsner. That being said this is best fresh and cold, as most pilsners probably are. Over hopped for the style but welcome by me. Delicious. Solid malt and hopped like a generous pale ale.
