4.08/5 rDev +1%
Poured a nice yellow/straw with a medium but nice retained head,pretty highly carbonated.Smell was nice and malty with some sweetness.Taste starts malty and somewhat irony but has a lingering dryness to it,somewhat complex for the style.One of the best if not the best pilsners I have had real nice and highly drinkable.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a 1/2" rocky white head. Lots of effervescence. Clearer than the last time I had it.
Aroma: Generally spicy pilsner-like smell. Smells pretty similar to Summerfest, perhaps a touch spicier.
Taste: Hoppy arrival, hoppy across mid-palate. Big, bitter finish - dry. Painfully bitter on the finish (for the style).
Mouthfeel: Mid-to-lightweight body; a touch less carbonation than I typically associate with the style.
Overall: This is lightyears better than the last bottle of this I had. That one was clearly off (always check bottle dates, and thank you Victory for having them). Still, if the goal is a clear, crisp, easy-drinker, this is off the mark. The hops on the finish are just too strong. In terms of enjoyment, I'd put Mama's Lil' Yella and Summerfest (both Czech) ahead of this.

Love Victory and this is one of the highest-rated pilsner beers. Here goes:
A: Clear gold with a two-inch head that leaves a good amount of lacing. The beer is also well-carbonated. Overall, perfect for the style. 4.5/5.0
S: Pilsner hops and light, grainy malt. Pilsner hops impart a grassy, straw-like smell. Can also detect some biscuit. Very refreshing, but the smells were somewhat muted and could have been better. 4/5
T: Light malt lingers on the front of the tongue and the hops are more apparent at the rear of the palate. Pilsner hops impart tastes of grass, hay (lots of hay), and lighter spices. Overall very light and refreshing. Great pilsner taste. 4.5/5.0
M: Very light, crisp, and well-carbonated. Great. 4.75/5
O: Very good pilsner. Should've had it colder, though.

Everyone has different flavor filters. Mine says this: It's good. On the hoppy side for a pills for my liking. Pleasent earthy flavor. I liked it. Will drink again. I prefer Skrimshaw for an American Pills but this one shows up quite well with a meal. Refreshing and crisp.
