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.

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.

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.

egajdzis (6130) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2008
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.

On tap at Victory. Pours a translucent golden with a medium bubbly/creamy white head that laced. Aroma was this wonderful floral hops, mixed citrus, grapefruit, bready...and just a great hop aroma...nice. Flavor of juicy noble hops, floral, citrus, bready, cereal grains, lemon and really nice.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2009 On tap at the brewpub. Second best beer of the night after another pilsener that is unamed in the database here. Fresh, grassy aroma. Strikingly clean and mellow body, with a fresh hoppy twang, clean citrus fruits like lemon and orange are in the mix somewhere. Exceptionally balanced and delicious. The hoppier of the two pilseners I sampled tonight at Victory.

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.

Goodgrief (2000) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - NOV 26, 2008
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.

KornDogg (570) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2009
probably the best Pils I have ever had... crisp citrus, spice, hop flavor... very smooth and refreshing... complex compared to many other Pils

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!!

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Easy drinking. Nose of straw and floral hops and light malt. No surprise; taste of malt, floral hops,salty fresh Saaz, and a strongly bitter finish. Appearance and mouth feel about average, as I would expect from a Plis or a lager, but this had a great bitter bite in the finish. And I just had a bottle prepared for the GABF ... and perhaps even a bit better than I remember. Slightly citrus in the bitter bite.
