The beer pours mostly clear with a hint of haze to it with a nice straw color. The pure-white head quickly reduces to almost nothing in a pilsner glass, leaving scant traces of foam along the sides as it disappeared.

The aroma is very mild. It's completely dry: white pepper from the Tettnang hops with no hint of malt affecting the smell.

The first taste is silky-smooth with a hint of graininess. The hops are not as strong as the Prima Pils but they're just perfectly balanced. This may be the driest pilsner I have ever tasted. There's little if any aftertaste. More white pepper on the tongue as well.

As incredible as the Prima Pils is, Victory's Braumeister Tettnanger Pils surpasses it in almost every way. More balanced and easier to drink: this is the kind of pilsner I was looking for when I was in Germany.

Tettnanger Pils ontap @ Victory Brewing

Pours a bright clear golden color, sizable head and lace stickage. Aroma is of German style Tettnang hops grown in the region of Germany bearing the same name. Pungent, stinkin Tettnang. In the flavor, a nice bitterness, German lager characteristics and a rounded hop profile. Tastes like a great pils fresh on tap in Germany, this stuff is authentic. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Overall pretty damn good.

Victory Tettnanger Pils is a immensely delicious, impressive brew brewed from the boys in Downingtown. Imagine Prima Pils with more mouth-watering bitterness with each sip....that is the power of the Tettnang hop. The beer pours golden with striking lacing in the pilsner glass....thoroughly tasty...

Personally: I can not say enough about how much I love this beer....I really wish they bottled this stuff.

I was able to try this Victory beer at "Teresa's Next Door" in Wayne, PA on 7/19/2008. They served it to me in a Pilsner glass.

This Victory beer poured a hazy pale lemon yellow color with a 3/4 of an inch head of white foam. This head of foam had great retention that left behind a skim of white film foamy white rings along the edge, and fair amount of white streaks of lace around the glass.

The aroma was truly unique. Not unique in a good way either. The aroma of this beer was heavy on the barnyard. Not just hay, everything that has to do with a barnyard. If you lived or passed up a barnyard before, then you know what I'm talking about. Behind the barnyard was Tettnanger hops, a drop of lemon zest, a hint of tart grapefruit, and a few more citurs fruits at the end. That barnyard aroma kind of ruined it for me.

I was pleased to find out that there wasn't any barnyard in the taste. I'm glad that was isolated to the smell only. Anyway, the taste was dry, cripsy, and bitter with plenty of Tettnanger hops, tart lemons, dried grapefruit, and then finished up with a touch of lightly toasted malts. What else can I say? The taste put the Tettnanger into Tettnanger Pils.

The mouthfeel was crispy and dry at the same time and featured an aftertaste of more Tettnanger hops, a hint of tart grapefruit, a touch of lemon zest, and a slight taste of toasted malts.

Not the most well balanced Pilsner I've had so far, but it is worth a try if you ever see it again. I'm glad I got to try and if I ever see it again, I'll make sure to try it again. Well, as long I don't have to smell it I will.

Draught @ Victory: Another variation of their Pilsner beer, which I believe they only serve at their pub. The beer is a lovely golden color, with a white head. There is a slightly spicy hop aroma. The taste is malty, with maybe a hint of sweetness. Good hop bite, but not as much as the Prima Pils. Another good reason to visit the brewery.
