Fan-freakin-tastic. I’ve never had such a hoppy pils and its just a wonderful thing. The aroma is herbal/spicy/grassy and just full of Hallertauer aroma - and what a fine hop it is. The beer isn’t real bitter though: it has a nice round malt base, and a generally sweet profile, complemented with a good dose of hop flavor (similar notes as in the aroma). Light yellow gold with a bit of a chill haze, good foamy head and long lingering lace. I loved it so much I brought some home in one of their big German-style 68oz growlers.

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.

On tap at Tyler’s in Carrboro. Another great pils from Victory. Gorgeous golden pour with healthy amount of creamy, lacy foam. Strong aroma of earthy, herbal hops. Clean and crisp with a blast of minty, floral hops. Bitter, but with plenty of bready maIts to round things out. I love this beer! Great American take on a classic German style. I could drink this everyday and not get tired of it.

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.

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.

(Old BA rate - tap, BT 09) Clear, light orangeish yellow color; and poured with a half-finger of pure white foam. OK retention, some spotty lacing. Grassy and earthy hop dominance (good stuff); almost a savory aroma from the hops. Really not much to mention otherwise, but I dig it. As suggested in the aroma the hop bitterness comes through the most; grassy and damn near salty; lingering dry bitterness. Lighter to medium body; pretty muted carbonation, a little more spritz would have been nice. Damn fine here; dry nature

Golden color, pours smoothly and with a nice head. Classic pilsner aroma, lively attack with a full, malty pilsner body. Crisp finish, great drinking beer! My favorite American pilsner so far.

Mouthpuckering hoppy. Noticed a hint of sulfur in the flavor. Good beer, but I prefer the Prima Pils.

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.
