Best German Pilsner company. Another great variation. Much heavier body then the previous, if I rmember right. A little smoother at the end with less lingering bitterness.

Beerman6686 (5384) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Poured a crisp clean golden color with a white head. Aroma was of earthy hops, cracker, dough, grass and light orangey character. Flavor similar, noble upfront, clean spicey bitterness, follow by a smooth doughy malt finish. Good, but not as good as the tettnamger.

Very nice pilsener. Great hops, the spalt are definitely original. Light crisp barley finish. Golden pour with OK head. Tap at GBD.

DrSilverworm (8697) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2015
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Leaves some loose bits of lace. Soon fades to virtually nothing. Interesting sort of spicy aroma, just a touch musty. Some breadiness. Some strange sort of ripe apple / pear fruitiness to this. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, with a spicy tingle all throughout. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. A decent pils. Solid, interesting, but I was hoping for a bit more from a Victory specialty.

[ Tap ][ 6oz ][ @Victory ][ $1.50 ][ Mini Pilsner ][ 7/25/14 ]
Listed as Braumeister Spalt @Victory. Transparent straw, effervescent with puffy white head that drops to coating and ring. Dusty grain rules nose, lightly citric with peppery accents, more orange rind sweetness than tettnanger. Biting carbonation at front is muted grains, heavy bitterness merging with toasty mid, heavy bread and crust through light lemon end, tons of toast lingering long in finish, rustic and earthy nuance accented by spritzy carbonation. More hop balance to match tettnanger, lower carbonation, but like tettnanger, grain depth and dryness overwhelmingly delicious.

callmemickey (3697) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Clear golden-straw colored body with a medium sized creamy white head and soapy lacing. Assertive floral notes are complemented by a light grassy character and gentle lemon zest. Light bodied with lively carbonation and a clean, refreshing bitterness in the finish. Another top notch pilsner in the Victory lineup.

DiarmaidBHK (3785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Draft at Tria on 18th. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Nice floral an woody notes on the nose. Big hop flavors of grass and spring flowers on the tongue. Fair amount of bitterness on the finish which is very refreshing. One of the best examples of the style I’ve yet had.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2011
(Sample Date: 9/23/2010 Source:Other) Spicy hop nose with light fruit and malt in the nose. Light golden, cloudy with small white head. Spicy hop flavor with fruit and malt flavor and some spicy yeast character. Moderate bitterness. Finish is mostly dry and moderately bitter.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Growler, Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a small tight bubbled white head. Nice clean hoppy nose with a bready pils malt base, a little grassy. The flavor is nicely bitter with a clean malt base. Light bodied and fizzy with some slight sticky bready malt on the finish. Nice Pils.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Growler Shenandoah Throwdown 2010. Pours a hazed golden blond with a long lasting thin white head- med to low carbonation. Aroma is grassy, earthy, bready light toasted malts, fresh pils, floral and light mint- slight similarity to a mt hood. Flavor is also floral, grassy herbal hops, clean fresh bready pils malt, some mineral, slight green pepper spiciness to the hops, light mint and green- crisp clean smooth finish- so easy drinking. Nice! The original from Jim Bush was even better!
Earlier Rating: 7/26/2009 Total Score: 4.2
Tap at BT for the Victory Promo night, listed as braumeister pils spalt select hops. Pours a very light clean gold with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is a sharp yet clean spalt hops- almost mineral like, green grassy floral and lightly spicy. Flavor is similar- grassy, mineral sharp edge to the hops, floral and definitely fresh as hell with a great clean crisp lean pils bready malt backbone- not as doughy or rich as the hallertauer- almost more mineral and lean and sharper overall. Still awesome.
