I'd love to see more of these on the market, as hoppy lagers are what I seem to crave more than anything else lately.

This one's very very crisp, almost no viscosity. Dry, a touch bitter, almost no grains to speak of except for a crisp, light pils malt midway through the sip.

Lacks the fruity/pineyness of Victory Prima - think more of a slight peppery, herbal hop accent - but not a bad lager by any stretch.
