Tap. Clearer bright gold. Savory, minerally, light grass in the aroma. Flavor features more hay, with some slight mineral and nice pillowy malt. Lighter, soft but sturdy. ryanscourt (1531) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Best German Pilsner company. Another great variation. Much heavier body then the previous, if I rmember right. A little smoother at the end with less lingering bitterness. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Poured a crisp clean golden color with a white head. Aroma was of earthy hops, cracker, dough, grass and light orangey character. Flavor similar, noble upfront, clean spicey bitterness, follow by a smooth doughy malt finish. Good, but not as good as the tettnamger. solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Very nice pilsener. Great hops, the spalt are definitely original. Light crisp barley finish. Golden pour with OK head. Tap at GBD. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2015
On tap at Dutch’s. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Leaves some loose bits of lace. Soon fades to virtually nothing. Interesting sort of spicy aroma, just a touch musty. Some breadiness. Some strange sort of ripe apple / pear fruitiness to this. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, with a spicy tingle all throughout. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. A decent pils. Solid, interesting, but I was hoping for a bit more from a Victory specialty.

Listed as Braumeister Spalt @Victory. Transparent straw, effervescent with puffy white head that drops to coating and ring. Dusty grain rules nose, lightly citric with peppery accents, more orange rind sweetness than tettnanger. Biting carbonation at front is muted grains, heavy bitterness merging with toasty mid, heavy bread and crust through light lemon end, tons of toast lingering long in finish, rustic and earthy nuance accented by spritzy carbonation. More hop balance to match tettnanger, lower carbonation, but like tettnanger, grain depth and dryness overwhelmingly delicious.
Clear golden-straw colored body with a medium sized creamy white head and soapy lacing. Assertive floral notes are complemented by a light grassy character and gentle lemon zest. Light bodied with lively carbonation and a clean, refreshing bitterness in the finish. Another top notch pilsner in the Victory lineup.

Draft at Tria on 18th. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Nice floral an woody notes on the nose. Big hop flavors of grass and spring flowers on the tongue. Fair amount of bitterness on the finish which is very refreshing. One of the best examples of the style I’ve yet had. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2011
(Sample Date: 9/23/2010 Source:Other) Spicy hop nose with light fruit and malt in the nose. Light golden, cloudy with small white head. Spicy hop flavor with fruit and malt flavor and some spicy yeast character. Moderate bitterness. Finish is mostly dry and moderately bitter.
