Enjoy by 10/15/14. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a pale golden with a small white head that fades and leaves solid lacing and retention. The aromas have alot of sweet corn. Pilsener malts are there. Fresh bread. Subtle caramel notes. The flavors are very earthy. Very sharp and crisp. The dry-hopping becomes very noticeable. Some black pepper in the mix. Pretty spicy. Some pine notes. Lemon zest in the finish. Hints of lime too. Finishes very dry. Mouthfeel is light with a nice body to it; active carbonation. Very smooth and easy drinking. Fun to drink.

The aromas are lackluster, but the flavors more than make up for it. You get exactly what they advertise. This is a dry-hopped pilsener, no doubt about it. It stays true to the style and doesn't try to be an IPA or a hybrid. Nice beer.

Fairly floral and slightly citrusy aroma, with crackery malt and a touch of pilsner skunk. Flavor is fairly bready and lightly sweet, with a bitter, biting, crisp finish. Figured the dry hoping would contribute more aroma. Becomes herbal in aftertaste.

A - Looks good a 1/4 inch of head that sticks around for a bit atop of a bright clear yellow pils.
S - Pilsner green grassy smell very little skunk actually with a good bitter hop character.
T - Good flavor mild grassy hops meets some skunky pilsner bitterness. Works quite well as most dry hopped takes on this style does.
M - Light to medium very easy to drink. Definition of session.

Overall its rotating so its still being brewed which is nice. Would love to get a mixed case with this tasty stuff.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Golden in color. Perfect clarity. Fine-bubbled white head retains at about a quarter inch. Small dots of lacing.

S: Lemon and dried grass, lime leaf, biscuity pilsner malt, hint of toast. Pretty straightforward.

T: Grainy and toasty. Hay. Hops tastes of grass, lime leaf, and lemon rind. Stiff bitterness. Dry toasty and grainy finish.

M: Light bodied. A little bit of pilsner malt firmness. Ample carbonation scrubs with force. Crisp.

O: I guess I was expecting a lot more out of this one. It's fine, but there's nothing that really stands out about it. Actually a bit more grainy and toasty than I like my pilsners to be.

This is a very different beer, I like it quite much, surprised at some of the reviews I've read here that are negative. Aroma is subtle but wonderful, I like the flavor and mouthfeel, it's a pretty darn well done dry pils in my estimation. I got this in a variety 12-pak in California, where Victory beers are hard to find, and expensive, but I treat myself now and again! The session IPA in this 12 was a little weak, but I love all the others, the Wheat, PIls, and Summer Love brews were all excellent.
