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.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2011
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.

dchmela (2679) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2011
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.

On tap at Birdsall House. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Light grain, crisp hops, slightly earthy hops, somewhat cheesy. Crisp and lightly floral. Really nice hop presence, crisp and grainy. Toast and crackers, nice sweetness. Crisp bitterness. Very nice.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2011
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 Iíve had.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and slight citrusy. Bitter, citrusy and grassy hoppy flavoured. Bitter and dry slight fruity finish.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Aroma of a big bag of lawn clippings, lots of lemon, a touch of fresh baked bread. Very dry taste, lightly bitter, with crisp cracker malts, bright and fresh saaz hops, lovely grass and lemon. Medium/light body with a crisp refreshing finish. Awesome beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2010
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. Iíve enjoyed several of Victoryís 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 thereís just a hint of malt backing too. Really tremendous, something Iíll always get when I see it on the board.

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 Iíd reached the halfway point in the pint, I was bored to tears. One-dimensional for me, so Iíd say stick to the standard Prima Pils.
