This is hands down the best German Pilsner in the business.A wonderful clean and refreshing brew that can be drunk all day and a great pairing for many types of food. The hotter it gets outside the better the beer tastes gong down.Although Victory makes many great brews this is their flagship brew in my opinion.In my opinion the best session beer out there.

Pours a slightly clouded straw gold with minimal head that falls to nothing. Nose is a matured and subdued lemon.Flavor is slightly citrus like with a smooth and slightly heavily bodied character that comes off as earthy and leaves a high amount of ink in the mouth. Consistent flavor delivery never drops off; just fades away over time. Very drinkable, though might be a bit too hearty for some.
