j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2011
On tap at Holy Smoke. Pours a clear lightly hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Crisp grain, and a touch of sweetness. Earthy and musky, almost a hint of cat pee, and some hops. Medium bodied, but it thins out quickly. Crisp grain and some sweetness. Slow gentle bitter finish.

Draft at Bottleworks. Pours a light milky soft golden yellow with a pillowy white head. Nose is danky grassy hops, slightly tart saltine cracker, hints of citrus, with a touch of pink peppercorn. Big bubble, but condensed carbonation. Grassy, dank, funky gym sock hops that also have some west coast ipa characteristics. Some slight lactic tartness going on also. The Tettnangers also have some subtle noble pine and citrus that come out. Just a clean well made pils showcasing a single hop that I’m very unfamiliar with...nice stuff.

jredmond (5249) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Sampled at Brewpub - labeled as Victory CBC Tradition Pils. Pours a clear yellow. Aroma is delicious. Taste is smooth and refreshing. This happened to be 10-12th sample in, thus the description suffers significantly.

DocLock (7721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Draft at Victory. Pours gold with white head. Nose is hops, pale malt, citrus. Tastes hoppy in a Saazy sense, with pale malt, slight sweetness but overall bitter, and a crisp bite in the finisgh. An excellent pils.

egajdzis (5267) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2009
[Draft @ EB+B] Poured a lightly hazy, golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malts, grass, lemongrass, grassy hops, citrus and toffee. Taste of grass, toast, toffee, citrus, and a bitter, noble hoppy finish.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at the Victory Brew Pub. Poured a lighter yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some grassiness...I wasn’t getting too much else. Tastes of the same grassiness with a lighter sweetness. Plain and simple.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2009
2nd rating, tap at the Brewpub. Pours lagery yellow with a tan ring. Nose didn’t have much for me. Taste is sweet and hoppy, slight bitterness.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2009
On tap at the Brick Store as part of the 12th Anniversary festivities. I believe this is the version with Tettnanger hops. Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with tons of bubbles streaming to the top and feeding a fluffy white head that shows very good retention and solid lacing. The aroma is textbook pils with a light toasted grain aroma with some sweet light malts and some floral and grassy hops. There is an underlying spice presence in the nose as well. The taste follows the aroma very closely with a solid backbone of sweet pale malts, toasted bread and the light citrus and grassy hops that show up in the front. The finish is dry and very crisp with a hint of the hops lingering in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is perfect for a summer day, light bodied, crisp and dry. This is the definition of refreshing as I could drink this all day long on 95 degree summer afternooon in Atlanta...like today. Extremely drinkable and one of the better pilseners I’ve tasted recently.

JAXSON (526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 Draft at the brewery. Clear straw pour. Pleasant, subtle nose of light grassy hops and cracked grains. Just a beautifully balanced and clean flavor expression. Slight hop bitterness with a little bit of woodsy, grassy twang, and an absolutely beautiful, long finish that is really hard for me to describe. I was so impressed with this and it’s the most perfect example of the style I’ve had. Amen, brotha.
