Stylistically, this a perfect pilsener! Unfortunatelly, pilseners are boring. This is a very tastey pils though. A bit of hops aroma with the traditional lager malt. A nice smooth beer. A great sell to turn people onto micros. sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 Clear golden pour with a tight bubble white head. Lemon grass and bready on the nose. Very authentic pilsner flavors with plenty of euro hops and biscuity maltiness. Finishes dry and crisp. A very tasty brew. morebier4me (140) - New York, USA - JUL 23, 2002
Too hoppy for me ... Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - AUG 22, 2003
For a long time I have searched for an American pils that would remind me of the 3 glorious beer drinking years I spent in Germany. I was always disappointed--that is until now. Pours a golden color with a lot of small bubbles, and a beautiful head that lingers forever. I was initially put off by certain characteristics of the aroma, but all that was quickly forgotten with my first sip. This, my friends, is a delicious pils, the rival of any I had in Germany. A rich malty taste with a beautiful bitterness at the end. Although I still am an IPA man, this is perhaps the best pils I have ever had, including my former favorite, Jever pils. Excellent.

Pours from the 12 oz. bottle like oh so many beers i’ve had before: golden yellow color, one finger head, fizzy, active carbonation...yada yada yada. The difference is in the aroma, though. As the head settles into a medium-heavy collar, an aroma like that of no other fizzy pale lager arises from the glass. Wait, that smells like hops! It IS hops, an abundance of ’em!! Citrusy (lemon) hops to be exact. Saaz? I think so. Ist sip has an initial hint of malt sweetness followed by those citrusy, slightly metallic hops. It’s a bold, powerful flavor that gets more intense on the swallow & lasts long after. There is active carbonation on the tongue and a medium-light, crisp finish. So THIS is what all those BMC pilsner wanna be imposters are supposed to taste like, huh? Man, the difference is like night & day!! Drinkable? Hell yeah...all day & well into the night!! Bravo to Victory Brewing !!! Tell the big boys in St. Louis & Milwaukee that THIS is what REAL beer should be like!!!

Pours a pale straw colour with a moderately thick white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, with a little bit of sweet citrus fruit. Taste is fantastic. Mildly sweet moving to a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with a very clean texture and finish. Overall, not a particularly complex beer, but it executes on the Pilsener style perfectly. da845 (139) - new york, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2006

pours golden with a whiite head. Aroma is floral and sweet. Taste bitter with just a touch of sweetness. Good pilsener. joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear yellow with a massive amount of white foamy head that simmers down to a thin mostly lasting layer. Aroma of floral hops and a hint of sweet malts. Initial flavor is balanced between hops and malt. No other flavors come out distinctly. Aftertaste dominated by the hops and hint of spice as it drags on. Some lacing, moderate aftertaste, light body, and limited alcohol noted. Overall a nicely done beer when in the mood for something lighter and maybe a good starter beer for people not into the bigger beers. MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with one finger white head. Aroma is of grass and slight malt. Taste is light and refreshing. Starts off with a bitter kick and progresses into a slight skunky grassy flavor. Very nice. The best representation of the pilsner style I’ve tried so far. Thumbs up!
