A full smooth bitter flavor with unusually spicy hop flavor and aroma. A very fine brew. There is a refreshing, almost menthol character to the hops that make this brew so unique and enjoyable in the often bland world of pilsners phiconners (151) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Pours a nice gold. Taste is pretty bland, maybe it has to do with the style. Hops are there but very muted. Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2008

Pilsner? Really? It certainly looks like a pilsner in the glass, but beyond that, I wouldn’t even peg it for a lager, let alone a Pilsener. To me it was much more reminiscent of an IPA or and APA. That being said, it’s a great beer in its own right. The palate was somewhat thin and sulfurish, and the nose somewhat sweet, but I’d gladly have more. When I want an American-made Pilsenser, I think I’ll stick to Trumer. NaturalIce (149) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Overall - a good pilsner. I don’t usually drink this kind of beer but the liquor store had this beer advertised as a RateBeer 100 percentile beer so I figured I’d try it. Very hoppy aroma for a pilsner. Very smooth somewhat bitter finish, but it goes down easy. This is a pretty good beer, but I can’t see myself frequently buying it. ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2004
solid german hop aroma coupled with a crisp yet soft malt aroma. Brilliant golden color. Some bitterness but not overpowering the malt flavors that take the forefront as the beer finishes.

My favorite domestic pils! Will still go for a pilsner urquell if I could only have one

As with all Vistory, if you don’t like hops this might not be for you. Different take on a Pils, pours pale gold with big head, light to medium body and a big hop presents fuchebu (146) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2001
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 This is one of my all-time favorites. A true American classic.............. foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Beer pours light pale with lots of bubbles and a slight white head. Aroma is subdued with mild hop presense and pilsner malts. Flavor is not very descript. Hops are of grapefruit and their sharpness covers any malt presence. Beer finishes clean. Overall this beer is OK but nothing that stands out for the style
