3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[ keg ][ 6oz ][ @Victory as "CBC Saphir" ][ $2 ][ mini flute ][ 04.30.16 ]
transparent gold, 0 effervescence, oily white cap. More dough less ester than tettnanger. Bitter victory pils grains in nose, bringing me back. Dusty bitter front palate, tons of grass and hay rusticity, low sweetness. Still muted but way better than the CBC tettnanger.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at pour house, Clearish gold shade, well carbonated, nice malt grain and light flower hop. A touch bitter, really balanced and well done crisp Pilsner. Victory needs to make more of this and less of their hoppy offerings.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a large, creamy white head...lively...nixe retention and lacing. Aroma has a nice balance between slightly sweet grains/cereal and mild grassy/spicy hops. Flavor or follows suit...nice hops character that has just a hint of melon and rind to go with grassy/spicy noble hop - like characteristics. Mouthfeel is full and silky with a dry rindy/spicy/minerally finish. Another awesome Victory pils.

Pours a nice gold colour with a little white head and lacing. Earthy, belgiumy aroma, with citrus tones, even hints of lavender. Begins malty, has a floral citrus hop in the middle, again hints of lavender. finishes dry almost nutty. I like this beer a lot. Nice easy drink.

T: Floral hops come through at the beginning, good citrus hints... nicely balanced with the malt base
M: Smooth, crisp, light bite at the finish. Medium-light body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Bottleworks. Something odd about this beer. Nose has something earthy or fecal to it. Not entirely pleasant. otherwise much as expected, earthy, spicy, above-average hoppiness, round, classic, slightly butery palate. Okay, not as exceptional as I had expected.
