Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a small, creamy, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of straw, grass, toasted dough, citrus fruits, skunk, and a bit of floral hoppiness. Taste of more toast, toffee, citrus fruits, lemongrass, toffee, and light bitterness in the finish.

PhillyCraft (5236) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2016
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.

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.

callmemickey (4148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
A: Clear golden-orange, moderate white head good lacing S: Nice european floral hops, light citrus notes.. 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. O: Easy drinking. I prefer the Saphir pills over the Hallertau pils. Nice addition to the lineup at Victory

Blonde, crisp carbonation, spritely with a light, lacey head. Neutral hoppy, on the floaral side. European hop flavor, bittered honey. Crisp, refreshing, generally not my style, but another well-crafted, commendable pilsener from Victory.
