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...
