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.

Rack up another triumph for the folks at Victory Brewing, this was the best pilsener I've ever had. Very smooth yet full of taste. Amazing mixture of malt and banana I believe.

Another high quality brew from Victory. Nice foamy white head, clean crisp malty/hoppy taste. Good stuff.

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!

about as good as the style is going to earn from me, plenty of bitter hoppiness, nice bright yellow color and pleasant carbonation. I'd drink these as summer sustenance very easily

hoppy and piney. thin. bitterness in the finish reminds me of tea that's been steeped for too long. it's refreshing and easy to drink. best consumed with chips.

Smells pilsy. Looks pilsy. "Heaps o’ hops?" How about "Smattering of Saaz?" Must admit that the creamy (dangerously smooth finishing) mouthfeel of this brew is the only thing keeping it away from the pee-water brews most ratebeerians detest. Okay warm-weather session, for swilling while jumping off a pontoon boat, but I wouldn’t try to muscle this past any serious northern-latitude drinker in the middle months of winter.

Alefest ’05 - Good solid beer for this style. Fuller flavor than most pilsners. Try their Hop Devil for an even better experience.

Bottled. Pale yellow. Airy, lemony nose. Thin body. Citrus, vanilla and metal flavour. Reminiscent to Jämtlands President. True micro brew but more of a German Style than Czech.

Light yellow. White head. Light flowery hop aroma. Mouth drying. Very high hop flavour. Like a double hopped Pilsener.
