Pours light gold color with a very slight haze and a head with rather large bubbles. Strong earthy, spicy hops, and distinct bread crust in the aroma. The hops dominate the flavor profile, with a very light honey sweetness and bread flavor from the malt. Finishes dry and bitter with plenty of earthy, spicy hops. Light bodied with carbonation on the loose side.

A- Crystal clear golden body with a large frothy bone-white head.

S- Lager yeast and a piney hop note.

T- Definitely tastes like a pils, but there is more of a hop note than most. Piney hops come through to add some good hop flavor.

M- Crisp, clean, high carbonation, medium bodied.

O- A good pils, very good example of the style.

reviewed from notes taken 12/19/12.

draft poured into a pint glass by bartender at Olympic Tavern in Rockford, IL.

Appearance: Clear straw yellow bodied beer with 2 fingers of big bone white head. Head has some nice staying power and sticks around for a while.

Smell: Light malt profile bready and grainy. Floral, grassy, and citrusy hops.

Taste: A touch of cracker and grainy malts. Balanced hop profile orange peel, floral, grassy, and more citrus. Mild hop bitterness. Clean and light finish.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Its crisp, bright, and refreshing beer. Super crushable beer.

Overall: This is a great summer beer option. Fantastic German Pilsner thats flavorful while being well balanced and soooo drinkable. It was a nice surprise. Great beer by Victory!

This was a 12 oz bottle that was poured into a snifter.

It poured a lovely amber and had a slight opaqueness to it. It smelled really hoppy and had a slight bitter smell. I was expecting more hops like an esb based purely on smell but it is a hoppy pils or a weak esb. The mouth feel is medium but I am not a huge pilsner fan. I like bigger body beers. With that in mind this was a great beer for a pilsner. I would recommend a d would buy again.

I love the nose and love the hoopiness of this beer.
