Volgon is telling me that i would like this a lot more if it was a burningly hot day. it's not a burningly hot day. it's a stunningly cold day. i even saw some snow falling. it had the appearance of fresh Bud. the aroma was a little different, but i didn't much care for it. it had a wincing flavor with a mild and somewhat ok aftertaste. There's a crappy chain of supermarkets around here called Victory. i bet there's a connection.

(Bottle) Thin, quick-dissipating, white head and golden body. Flavour is slightly lemon. Good hop showing. Nice citrus finish.

UninspiredSketchy aroma, light yellow coloring with a nice head. Overly bitter and slightly off balance. Not bad, but I expected better.

Golden colour with nice frothy head. Dry malt aroma with some german hops. Dry bitterness coming from Saaz hops (?)which lingers pleasantly. A classic pils.

Pilseners. Not my favorite style, but this one was good. Victory just takes a style of beer and runs away with it. I love these guys. Great reproduction of a pils. Slight lingering pils bitterness was nice. Pils!

I was disappointed in this beer. I was looking for more noble hop flavor and aroma. It had a grapefruit aroma and flavor that reminded me more of cascade and chinook hops. I was expecting a crsip german or czech style hop in this beer. To be fair this beer was getting towads the end of it's date code. I will have to try another one that is fresh and not as old.

Clear golden color with a brilliantly white head. Aroma of bread and hops. Smooth and dry on the palate with a gentle carbonation. A nice balance of malt and hop flavors. Good stuff!

Quality Pilsener. Pale, pale gold in colour. Probably the most hoppy pilsener that i've had, really bitter aswell, grassy/haylike aromas, slightly honeyed. Pretty soft mouthfeel at the start, but the bitterness hads some sharpness and length to the flavour. Which is a good thing, coz its a tasty brew. Liked it very much.

LordHedgehog (144) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Retched aroma reminds me of BMC with a higher hop content. Pours to a very light yellow/gold with a large firm head. The beer is rough on the palette with overpowering bitterness. Flavors, with the exception of hops, are understated. Once you get used to the bitterness, there is a malty smoothness that is somewhat refreshing.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2003 Hoppy smell reminiscent of an IPA. Clear gold in color with a good head of varying sized bubbles. Taste is like no other pilsner I've ever had. Very, very hoppy for a lager. Tastes more like an IPA than anything. Finally found a pilsner I like.
