I love the Victory varietal pils so much more than the already good Prima Pils. Beautiful golden straw color with a lacy white head in the glass. Aroma is nice and spicy with some hints of grain. Flavor is a great balance of Tettnanger hops and Pilsner malts. Beers like this have opened me up to enjoying Pilsners when I was typically a Stout and Barleywine only fan.

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 itís the most perfect example of the style Iíve had. Amen, brotha.

Draught at maxís; they didnít specify, but Iím assuming that this is the current Tettnang Pils. Yellow body with a slight haze and a creamy head. Sweet malty aroma with really fresh, green, oily and fruity hops. Smooth and spicy flavor with fruity, green, oily hops, clean, light and bready malts and a smoothly bitter finish. Medium-light in body with a wonderfully smooth feel. Quite hoppy overall, but perfectly balanced and smooth in comparison to the more rough prima pils. might be the best pils (or keller?) that Iíve had yet.

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.

[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.

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.

.5 liter mug at Victory listed as their Tettnang Pilsner. Pours a nice beautiful golden clear modest carbonation and a fluffy tacky white head and great lace. Aroma is a bit sharper with spicy tettnagn hops and just overall hoppier than the Saphir pils- malt is a bit more subdued but still fresh and delightfully bready. The tettnang is insanely fresh- killer spiciness, and a touch of floral character with some hints of fresh cut flowers and grass. Flavor is a nice crisp clean pils malt backbone and the hops take control with their fresh spiciness. Crisp and clean finish with a lingering hop tackiness.

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.

Tap at Meridian Pint as Victory Tettnanger Tettnang Keller Pils 4.7%. Pours a low haze glowing gold with weaker head formation. Spotty lacing. Nose is fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh sourdough biscuit, fresh pale malt grist. Taste is soapy, orange juice, fresh sourdough, fresh malt grist, crusty sourdough bread. Extreme herbal hop smack for balance to the point of pine and resin. Lemon juice, orange juice, lactic acid in back end. Very delicious.

Real good pilsner. A variation of the Prima Pils. This one is heavier and has more potent hops flavor.
