generally, i don't like pils beers at all, but this one i did. hoppy (of course, coming from victory), a little bit bitter, but light enough that you can drink it all night. a beer i enjoyed a great deal. Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 1, 2003
For a pilsner, this destroys the myth that only the Germans and their Eastern European cousins understand this often complex style of beer. Thick and rich palate. Crisp clean flavor and not overly hopped like many American brewers lean toward. Delicious golden color. It screams for a warm spring or summer day. For pilseners, this is one of the best. Not a hint of skunk! ShawnMalloy (130) - Auburn, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Pours a light golden yellow. Body is light with a light mouthfeel. The skunky hop content is quite a bit of a surprise. One of the better light beers around. RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Smells of light bitterness with sweet backgrounds. Moderate carbonation with quickly retreating head. Color of sunlight gold. Tastes of hay, and honey. Slight bitterness throughout. Sticky palate yet very refreshing middle and finish. Aftertaste of sweet malt and bitter hops. Great for camping. DrZao (128) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours yellow and slightly hazy with big white head. Aroma is very nice and clean, crisp floral and citrus. Flavor hits you right away with a lot of bitter but clean herbal hops...a bit more bitter than I expected. But it does leave a nice clean aftertaste with a touch of subtle sweet malt. I began to enjoy it more towards the end of the glass. Very refreshing, but a touch too bitter, otherwise very nice.

Nice pilsner. Had it on tap. Was a light pale color with nice thick head. malty aroma. Very crisp taste. Full flavor pilsner but very light at the same time. Really refreshing. IEBAILI (128) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Clear golden color shows off the bubbles nicely. Small white head fades quickly to just a small slick of foam. Smells beery, by which I mean a little hops and a light malt smell without abything jumping out - smells cold, too, if that’s possible. Tastes reminiscent of German pilsener, but maybe a lttle fruitier, probably because it’s fresher. I like it, it’s refreshing and although it obviously has less flavor than the bigger styles that seem to dominate craft brewing today, the flavor it does have is clean, well balanced, with enough hop bite to make it interesting. None of the wierd sweetness that a lot of macro lagers have. Makes you wonder if American macro and regional lagers used to taste like this. I’ll stock my fridge with this for guests who just want a ’normal’ beer, and I suspect I’ll down a few of these with burgers and dogs at my next cookout. jsmanigold (127) - Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Slightly sweet malty citrus aroma. Murky golden color with a very little head that dissipates really quickly. Has a huge hop flavor with a citrus flavor. Each sip is clean and crisp with a dry finish. AMN (127) - Dublin, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Thin white head with yellow, sort of cloudy body. Easy mouthfeel with a slight citrus flavor. Strong hoppy, bitter finish. jackamackson (127) - USA - MAR 21, 2005
light yellow pour, with a white frothy head. citrusy hop flavor, kind of sour, with a decent bitter finish. nice crisp refreshign mouthfeel. a good easy drinking pils with good bitterness.
