look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into Stella chalice

App: hefeweizen-like hue - cloudy deep yellow, half-finger head
dissipates rather quickly but retains a light lacing...get a good whiff quick!

Smell: lemony and grass like, light citrus

Taste: medium bitterness, lemon, some lingering honey and ginger notes, lightly phenolic

Mouthfell: malty but a little puckering. Carbonation level medium to low

Overall: for it's style I really enjoyed this beer. Victory really can hang with any German brewery on this one. I will buy it again

This is another great pils - the second I've had this week. It has great aromatic character and a nice hoppy taste. The aftertaste has way more hops than this style usually has, being out of character, but really nice.

The beer was way too cloudy when I opened it but it was pretty cold. As it warmed it got better. The taste kept getting better too.

This is a really nice pilsener I would buy again when I wanted a fuller than normal experience.

Poured into my SamAdams perfect pint.

Clear golden yellow. Very little head.

Smells of grass.

Tastes of grass, some lemon. Pleasant bitterness. Do I rate on style or how much I like it? I'll go with how much I like it, which is a lot.

Mouthfeel: no complaints.

Overall: a refreshing and delicious, if over hopped, pilsner.
