Enjoyed a bottle of this before meal at Spring St Cafe in Sylva, NC, and than had one with my Jamaican Jerk Pork BBQ dinner as well. Yummy!
Onto the beer....poured a yellow-gold with a nice head. Has a large amount of carbonation, although for once, in this beer, that didn't bother me like it often does. The carbonation was easy to deal with and didn't seize my throat or bloat my tummy like some highly carbonated beers.
Smells of metal and earthy/spicy hops arch off the head, and the hint of perhaps centennials hops as well? Far hoppier in the nose than a typical pils, even Pils Urquell, which is a favorite of mine. I could have sniffed this one much longer but was drawing funny looks from the tables around me.
Tatse and mouthfeel are exceptionally crisp and sharp, but in a good way. Very smooth malt flavors blend with the hops all the way through the sip and the yeast stays apparent, although in the background, providing a lager-ish finish. Simply put, a supremely refreshing and quenching beer ever. Victory has done it once again, this time bringing hops to a style where so much hops isn't expected, and still making it work well.
Exceptionally drinkable. Brought home a sixer of this and Avery IPA from NC and have loved having both around.
Wish GA would get Victory and Avery in sometime soon...

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.

I recently tried it when in the UK and I am seriously surprised that something like this is sold. It's pretty much like a homebrewer's first pils. It is nowhere near the subtley balanced flavours other examples such as Pilsner Urquell display.
The taste is quite harsh, steely. The body is way too thin and lacks just a little bit of the sweetness that is necessary for even the dry beers like "Flensburger" or "Jever".
I'd go back to the drawing board with this one...
