On tap at Victory. Poured a medium, cloudy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas and tastes of citric lemons and light grass. Very drinkable.

Draft at Victory. Slight hazy gold pour with aroma and taste of hops, malt, some citrus. This one is very hoppy, with a semi-dry finish. I still prefer the Prima, but this one is very good also. I really hope Victory makes more styles this year. I’d love to see Oak barrel Storm King and Oaked St. Victorious.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Tap at Victory. Sparkling clear straw. Sheets of white lace. Nose is sweet yellow apple, fresh lemongrass, fresh zesty orange. Taste is Doughy, sharp, no metallic character like many Czech pilsners, fresh orange peel. Palate is super Doughy and quenching. Awesome.

Very pale straw-coloured beer. White head. The aroma is very zesty and spicy. Very bright lemony herbal nose and a crisp/crackery pale malt. Very fresh and tasty with a long herbal bitter finish. Nice beer for a hot summer day.

jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Draft at Brewpub in Downingtown, PA. Pours a light gold. Aroma is light. Taste is refreshing hop - apparently Hallertauer hops.

egajdzis (6590) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Poured a cloudy, light yellow color with a small, white head, that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of bread, and grass and lemon hoppiness. Taste was rather sweet, more lemon (I think from the hops) and bread, more citrus, and a dry finish. A nice, crisp, and dry pilsener.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Wow another killer pils at BT for the Victory promo night. Pours a nice bright slight hazed straw golden with a fluffy cloudlike head on top- crazy good lace. Aroma is very bready rich creamy and doughy malts, and just tons of very soft floral hallertauer hops- light zest, but just very herbal and flowery. FLavor is so clean, doughy malts have a great backbone adn just a very fresh medium amount of floral hoppiness, lightly grassy and just very clean and insanely smooth to drink. Crazy good.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Tap at Victory. Pours a hazy golden with a medium bubbly/creamy white head that left lacing. Aroma of that fresh/spicy noble hops that you would expect from the Hallertauer, bready, floral, grassy with lemon and other mixed citrus notes. Flavor was a lot of the same. Bitterness is really nice and hop flavor is showcased wonderfully in this great Pilsner. Loved it.

callmemickey (4543) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
A: Golden-orange body. Moderate white head. Good lacing. S: Mostly floral/grassy hop notes. Some citrus tones come through as well. T: Solid floral bitterness is complemented with delicate citrus flavors in the middle. Good balance. M: Crisp, moderate body. Suffers from a slightly off finish. A friend called this the "Saphir Pils with funk" O: Overall, a nice easy drinking pilsner.. I’d take the Saphir or the Prima pils over it however.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Hazy gold, opaque and murky with heavy lace, light small bubbled white head. Dusty nose is incredibly grassy, cedar, faint vitamin c. Really tight. Dry flavor is lightly sugary, doughy with toast accents mid, ends bright, light earth C contrast, fizzy carbonation and chalk accent. Nice and tight, but not the grain and dryness of their best.
