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 good clean and crisp beer. but after i read the description i expected a little more kick. i’m not a big fan of pilsners. They seem to lack some flavor i expect in beer. but if this is yer thing you might like this one.

Bottled. This beer was a cloudy golden color with a white head that left some nice lacing behind. It had a skunky smell, but luckily it didn't carry over to the taste. Lots of hops which overshadows the malt taste. The hops also linger in the finish. Kinda IPA'ish with the hop bitterness, not that I'm complaining. Once I got past the initial skunk aroma, the beer was quite good. I probably received a bad bottle, since nobody else here mentions the skunky aroma. I will try this again!

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.

I liked the smell and presentation of this beer but i wasnt ready for its foresty flavours that followed. Honestly it almost tasted like pinecones. But it was a different beer.

Light hazy froth poured out of a cold bottle. Floral hoppy zest followed by spritzy Pils character . Bitter as per a Pilsener. I like more sweetness and less bitter in my beer. AMong the best pils i've had though .

I was disappointed in this beer. I was looking for more noble hop flavor and aroma. It had a grapefruit aroma and flavor that reminded me more of cascade and chinook hops. I was expecting a crsip german or czech style hop in this beer. To be fair this beer was getting towads the end of it's date code. I will have to try another one that is fresh and not as old.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 Clear straw yellow color with big pure white head. Aroma was faint, touches of honey and spicey hops, a touch of sweetness. Flavor is somewhat bland, with a bit of malt noted upfront, and a spicey hop character, slightly sweet finish.

Hazy (from being served too cold) golden color with white foamy head. Decent hop aroma of spices, mildly floral. Light body with plenty of carbonation gives full mouthfeel. Bitter flavor of pepper and grapefruit, slight malt taste is non-remarkable. Hops stand out from beginning to end with lasting finish. This beer is thirst quenching, but not as dry as advertised. I'm just not a pilsener fan.
