Thanks to Craig for bringing this growler back from Victory. Poured a light yellow, with big white head. Aroma is citrus, hops, and little earthy. Taste is honey, lemon, and very light, easy to drink, and very fresh. GMCC2181 (1617) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Growler shared by craig at stateline. Light yellow color, good head. Taste was a very clean, crisp, fresh tasting pils. A little lemon, malt, and hop taste. Light texture. Easy to drink. Solid beer. GAManiac (1946) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2008
On-tap at the Brick Store.
Pours a clear golden with a big fluffy white head that lingers as a sizable cap for a while and leaves very good lacing.
The aroma is extremely clean with an emphasis on the toasted grains with hints of earthy hops. There is a definite biscuity malt presence in the nose as well.
The taste was as crisp a pils as I’ve ever tasted. The biscuity malts are there in the background, but it’s the double punch of the light grains and floral hops that make the taste. The finish was extremely clean and dry.
The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with tons of carbonation that zings the tongue from start to finish.
This is certainly a top notch pils and one that I would seek out. afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008
On tap, served in a footed pilsner glass. Clear gold with a lasting white head. Smells of sweet grain,bread, and floral notes. Much more malt presence than Victory’s standard pils, bready, floral, herbal, a hint of lemon. Dry finish with lasting herbal bitterness. Beautiful spiderwebs of lace cling all the way down the glass. One of the more complex pilsners I have had, very nice. hopscotch (11451) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle... RBSG ‘08... Clear, light yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Pale grains, spicy, earthy hops and honey constitute the aroma. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Nice pilsner malt flavor with a crisp hop bite. Lengthy, medium bitter, dry finish. Thanks to Greg Koch for breaking this one out for our table to try!

On tap at Blind Tiger. Aroma luscious with champagne fruits, lemony powder, sweet malt. Flavor exhibits some sourish notes in the green grape vicinity with a perfect mild sweetness and fruitiness. Excellent. LilBeerDoctor (4236) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2008
On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sweet light fruits. Flavor is initially bitter hops followed by a sweet light finish. Also some wheat and spicy hops. Incredibly delicious. Sweet, light, and crisp. 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Draft @ Frisco Grille it’s a moderately hazy golden yellow with a pure white head. Somewhat of a starchy nose of sourdough, some light lemon, light pils malt and a clean, fresh pillow yeast. Flavor is mildly bitter, mildly dry, with a very clean and inviting crispness to the cracker-flavored malt base, and a mild, musty yeast character throughout. Good stuff. hopdog (13258) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2008
On tap at TDR (Springhouse). Poured a deeper and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of grass, earthiness, and some citrus. Tastes of grass, citrus, and biscuit. Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Draft at Exton. Aroma of beautiful sweet malts and vanilla. Similar to the Brau Pils but a lot hoppier. Dry as a bone with a tangerine taste. Easy drinking but not as tasty as the other.
