COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Citrus and floral aromas mingle with spice in this single hopped pilsner. Flavors of bread and grain are balanced with a pleasant bitterness, finishing with crisp and mildly spicy notes.

Brewed in the USA....... Pours a golden color with a nice medium foamy white head. Aroma of lemons, straw and hops. The taste has some floral notes, a hint of grass, lemons and malts. The mouthfeel is wonderful, crisp clean and extremely refreshing. This is the best pilsener that i’ve had so far. Another fantastic job from the crew at Victory.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2009 On tap at brewpub. The star of the show. An absolutely perfect pils. Notes of hay and lemon. A smooth brew that brings new meaning to the term drinkability. Finishes dry, leaving you wanting more. So upset that the brewery does not allow growler fills of this!!

On tap at the brewpub. listed as CBC Saphir Pils. Crystal clear gold with a thick white head. Nice grassy nose, some lemony notes, grainy. Crisp body - just right - excellent lace rings. Mildly sweet grain smothered in grassy hop and some citrus. Excellent!

Pours a clear yellow with a nice head, good looking pils... Dry noble hop aroma with notes of grass, and mild fruitiness... Easy drinking nice pils with a dry taste and mild fruit notes... Easier drinking than the prima pils, reminds me a bit of Stoudts Pils in flavor profile...

Golden color with a nice pillowy head. Aroma is biscuity with some sharp citrus and floral hops poking through. Flavor has some nice breadiness and fresh floral and citrus hops that really rock the tastebuds. Probably the best pils I’ve ever had.

Half Liter at Victory. Pours a nice clear gold with good carbonation and a great lasting pure white head- great lace. Aroma is a great balance between fresh doughy pils malts (a bit more malt than prima, hallertauer, tettnang, harvest, or any of their other pilsners) with a great herbal and lightly floral hop kick- extremely fresh and very pronounced spicy hop character all around. Flavor has more doughiness, tons of fresh pilsner malt, good backbone for the hops- spicy, lightly herbal and floral just beautifully fresh. Ridiculously crisp finish with lingering fresh bread, and a great hop bite which isn’t too assertive. Excellent pilsner from Victory- might be my new favorite from them.

Sample from Brewpub. Pale gold pour with a fruity nose. Fruity and perfumy flavor, but not in a bad way…like a bouquet of spring flowers. A mild hoppiness was present with a grassy hay flavor and a moderate level of sweetness. Easy drinking and quite delicious, honestly. The best of the new beers at Victory.

On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy light gold body topped by a diminishing white head. Smells of lemon and herbal hops. Taste is herbal, floral, lemon, and a touch of white pepper. Quite a tasty pils.
