Draft at mad mex on McKnight. Pours golden with a thin white head. Nice floral note on the nose. Had definite hop bite on the tongue. Very forward on the palate but it finishes very clean and crisp. Lovely example of style.

Wonderful pale yellow, big white head on top. Nice, grassy flavors, some solid pale barley flavor, the saaz provides that clean and crisp hop with some spiciness. Great pils.

Tap a WOB. Light yellow pour with a thick white head. Huge floral, citrus hop aroma. Nice crisp hop taste with a big noble hop earthiness and citrus touch. A really great use of a great noble hop.

Tap, at brewery. Slightly hazy gold body with one finger frothy white head that left great lacing. The nose is bursting with fresh grassy Saaz, some bready pils malt, just amazingly fresh. The flavor is great, plenty of Saaz, soft pils malt, nice lingering but crisp finish. Light bodied with great carbonation. Just really refreshing and clean. Best of the braumeisters I’ve had.

Enjoyed on tap several times at The Federal, Durham. When the worst summer heat since WWII exacts its merciless toll on you, a beer like this is the ticket. I’ve enjoyed several of Victory’s pils offerings, and this dry, delectable beast might be the finest of them. Raw and roiling golden pour, with an invitingly dry nose. Mouthfeel is abundant and enjoyable. Some citrus notes emerge amidst the Saaz to give the flavor some depth and complexity, and there’s just a hint of malt backing too. Really tremendous, something I’ll always get when I see it on the board.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.
Appearance: Delicately hazed, light yellow body with a sudsy, white head fed by sporadic streams of effervescence.
Smell: Whiff smelling modestly of German pilsner malts paired with Saaz notes imparting hints of flowers, cut lemon, and soap suds.
Taste: Pilsner malts, minimally sweet, along with a touch of soda crackers. Small pop of fresh florals on the tongue. Then, a bit of lemon and very subtle spiciness. The hop bitterness remains for the dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: While I was initially interested in the isolation of Saaz and Saaz alone, by the time I’d reached the halfway point in the pint, I was bored to tears. One-dimensional for me, so I’d say stick to the standard Prima Pils.
