Tap at RNH. Poured as the Victory braumeister Schwarz Pils. Pours a very deep woody amber (not black or schwartz at all), clear, good lasting dense off beige head. Aroma is intense spicy german hops, fresh grassy spice, herbal notes and almost sweet flowery hops with good full bready malts, pils, and light burnt toast with touch of sweetness- no roast, no chocolate to cover the hops. Flavor is similar- big bready pils malt, light carapils, slight vienna breadiness, toast, and huge fresh green german hops, zesty and spicy near the end- with a great balanced malt-hop finish yet still incredibly drinkable. Firm yet crisp. Awesome stuff. Best beer of the year so far.

From a growler picked up at the brewery... into a pilz glass. Pours a really nice auburn brown. Tons of fluffy head and accompanying lacing. Aroma of grass and more grass. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Nothing like a schwartzbier but spot on for a pilsner. Great crisp grassy and light hoppy taste. It’s got some bite/zing to the taste and aftertaste. The dark malt is slightly noticeable in that there’s a very mild smokey flavor but it works well with the hops for some reason. Overall, an awesome pilsner... yet another in a long line by Victory.

dark brown, thin cream head and ring. Dusty earth nose, heavy hay, light chocolate and roast. Victory pils flavor has lightly green cocoa and pine up front, mid of light roast, finish a bit sweet, not enough grain though small bubbled carbonation, soft yet spritzy and on point.

Chestnut brown pour, beutiful foamy head and great lacing. Flavor was some dark roasted malted flavor with a slight fruity zing. Funky noble hop flavor. This really worked for me. Kudos to Victory...worth the trip to the brewpub.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Crisp malty nose, lots of crackery malts, light honey, a touch of biscuit, and grassy hops. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lots of grassy-lemon drop hops, firm biscuit malts. Very nice.

Draft. Pours an orange body with a white cream good head retention. Malty up front with light coco notes but quickly softened by a grass y noble hop tone. A bit spicy in terms of the hoppy grass tones and some bitter resinous oily tones. A hint of citrus and sharp finish. Delicious.

nimbleprop (4536) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Growler pours a watery, opaque black with some creamy, white head. Nose is nice, fruit, malt, chocolate, plum. Flavor is malty, brown sugar, chocolate, grass, a little vegetal. Dry finish. Insanely drinkable.

Growler thanks to MrChopin. Deep brown pour. Nose and flavor bring beautiful dry roast, scallions, green hops, and spicy noble character. Gorgeous attenuation. Delicious.

1st rating brand new beer, tap at Victory. Pours beautifal dark brown with a stable creamy head. Nose is a little smokey and quite sweet. Taste is smoky roasty, malty and pretty damn interesting.

A: Pours an amber transparent color with a thin frothy white cap. This beer is supposed to be a hybrid of sorts, so the color is not meant to be "to-style" S: Lots of German yeast notes, grain, wheat, a urinal-cake phenolic-like note, and light earthy hops that make it floral. Not terribly complex, but very inviting T: The hops give a solid bitterness, grainy, earthy, wheaty, and very smooth. Everything works well together, including the yeast. Not necessarily to-style, but very good MF/D: Smooth feel to it despite the kind of prickly carbonation, the finish is of light grain and wheat. Body is lighter
