Straw color with a white head. Pleasant noble hop aroma. Crisp bitterness on the palate. Medium body. Clean finish. A nice variation on an already great Victory pilsner.

Cloudy straw yellow color with a soapy white head. Aroma of grass, lemon, and hops. Flavor with lemon, grass, and hint of grain and hops. Really nice beer!

Growler from Greens in Columbia. $10 for 64oz of Victory Pils? Yes please.
A. Goes into my Trumer Pils glass a very attractive, clear, (not crystal clear) yellow, with a fine white cap head and lots of active carbonation. Spotty lace, too.
S. Zesty, bitter grassy hops, dry, mineral water, lemon rind, more hop forward than most.
T. Extremely dry, with a dry finish. Bright, grassy green hop flavor with lemon-shock and just the barest hint of grain. A better pils than Prima, but I prefer mine a little wetter and malt characterful.
P. Spot on crisp carbonation, lingering bitter-lite / dry finish. Perhaps the driest Pils I’ve had... drinks very easy though, if you like this sort of thing.
O. A very good American take on a German style; I really dig these single hop Pilsners that Victory is cranking out. Give this one a shot if you can, it’s a fine warm weather beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crystal clear yellow with a white head. Cris earthy hops and a bit of toasted malt in the aroma. Crisp mouth- almost painfully crisp. Very nice. Taste is light but flavorful. Light earthy hops, a touch of malt, more crisp hops, light sweetness in the finish but mostly a medium bitterness. Real nice, really.

Hey Now! A good beer with a nice blend of caramel malts, strong german hop and yeast, all wrapped up with a nice dry finish. Well done.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Capone’s. Served in a mini snifter.
Pour yields a very, very hazy yellow color with a very short head that refuses to rise no matter the number of swirls. The aroma brings some nice Tettnang hops with a bit of grain. Perhaps too much grain. The taste improves with a better hop hit and less straight grainy malt. Good bitterness and a light body. Dry finish. Pretty decent, though no match for Prima Pils.
Serving type: on-tap

Draft at Churchkey. Another excellent pilsner from Victory. A bit crisper and cleaner than prima pils. Cereal flavor seems a bit stronger as well. Overall a super dry hoppy pilsner. Very bitter, herbal finish.

Herbal and lemon hop nose, very light pine and wintergreen, just a touch of hay. The taste is fairly dry, extremely nice, crisp pale malts (just what I expect from a Victory lager), solidly hopped, again leaning slightly to the pine/wintergreen/mint end of the spectrum. Clean yeast. Fucks yeah. Love Victory.
