COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure pils pleasure with a juicy jolt... Our latest single hop varietal pils features a fresh twist. A very fresh twist as whole flower hops went from the vine to the kettle in a mere 10 hrs. giving the beer a snap of freshness that has to be tasted to be believed. In ’wet hopped’ beers such as this, the hops are full of fresh oils that dissipate when the hops normally dried. These essential oils give Braumeister Harvest Pils the clean, spicy hop aromas you’d expect from a pristine pilsner, followed by the long, satisfying mouthfeel full of flavorful hop depth and substance. All this flavor yields to clean malt and a crisp finish.

Overall this is a very interesting beer. On tap at the Bocktown. Smells unique in that it’s mild aroma is a bit rubbery, but in a good way. This beer appears pretty much ubiquitous pale yellow american lager but there is some haze in there, very little haze. Carbonation is above average and welcomed. The flavor has some of that butyl rubber aroma carrying over into the taste. Is weird in that it is slightly tart and hoppy at the same time. Very complex. Can’t figure out if it’s the rubber or the hops that is contributing to the medium bitterness. Finish has a bitter aftertaste that is difficult to identify.

On tap at Bocktown (they had it listed as Victory Limited Lager). Wow..different than the few Z/K/Ls I’ve had. Intense floral hop aroma. Smelled like a flower bed with a hop vine growing in the middle. Pour was a nice burnt orange with a 2 finger white head. Taste was very floral and hoppy with a suprise sweet aftertaste. After the sweetness goes away you are left with a bitter hop bite on your tonsils. There is a weird fruitiness as it warms. Very complex and different.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Sampled on draft at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh this beer poured a bright golden color with a small white head. The aroma was crisp floral and fruity hops. The flavor was lightly fruity with a dryish peppery floral hop element. The finish was all hops. Medium body.

on tap at Brick Store Pub (sample). Wonderful pilsner with a deep golden color and medium body. Tastes very fresh and crisp. Nice hops and a pleasure to drink.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Slightly hazy yellow/amber color. Flavor is fruity (apricot) and doughy; pilsner malt with grassy hops. Very bitter finish.

CamdenD (1204) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 31, 2007
Drinkable but entirely average beer -- muddled hop aroma with a syrupy repetitious taste of malt and sourness. Finish is not crisp but lazy. Disappointing mainly because of the wonders of the Prima Pils from the same brewer.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2008 Tap at Legend with maniac. Hazy yellow with a decent head, mistaken by most for a wit at first glance. Aroma was a huge blast of green hops with floral and herbal notes. Flavor was a somewhat shocking hop tea. No discernable malt character whatsoever that I could pick up, much to my surprise. Loads of green hops with floral, herbal, and slight grass character, long bitter finish. But the lack of suffficient malts really hurt this badly for me. RERATE: Ultra clear this time around, still has a load of spicy, floral and herbal hops. Great nose, flavor still hurts from lack of malt character.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2007
On guest tap at Legend Brewing Company as "Victory Harvest Pils". Clody golden orange body with a meium creamy white head. Sweet citrus and grassy hops aroma. Sweet grassy flavor with a bitter grapefruit citrus finish.
