Shared from a growler at the Pre-Tap gathering. Poured a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of grassy Saaz hops with a touch of corn. Taste is strong corn, grass, and dry alcohol. Big kick and alcohol burn. Goes down hot and heavy, like a IIPA. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 27, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a golden amber with an average foamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of citrus and that distinct pils malt. Flavor was a nice hop bitterness with a grainy malt balance and some pine. Great crispness,refreshing yet hoppy. As I drank this one I was also picking up more floral in both the aroma and taste. ABV really well hidden. axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours a medium golden color with a foamy white head. The aroma is flowers with some oranges and grapefruits and a strong malt nose. Flavor is lots of grassy and citrusy hops with a strong malt backbone and a mild bready taste. Victory really does great pils! Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - APR 12, 2006
Tap at the brewery. Clear, solid gold, very little carbonation, decent white head. This is a pils on ’roids! nose is floral, some citrusy orange, and some doughlike scents. Nice, full body, lively mouthfeel. Malty backbone, caramel flavors, with some grassyness. Peppery bitter finish. I really liked this one! weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2006
Appears a crisp, golden color with a small white head that leaves tiny specks of lacing around the glass.
Smell is of mild dough, mixed floral hops, and some pils malts with powdered sugar and corn.
Taste is of the same aromas with some mild caramel and vanilla coming through with the distinct pils malt. Maybe some dough, grass and straw thrown into the mix with a lager yeast.
Mouthfeel is crisp, and medium bodied with decent hopping.
I could barely notice that 8.8% in there. Not too shabby of an offering by Victory.

Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, some citrus fruits, toasted dough, and some bubblegum. Taste was toasty, with light caramel malts, toffee, citrus fruits, some grassiness, and a medium bitter finish.
