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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

I enjoyed this on tap, served chilled in a pint at Brewhouse grill in Camp Hill

The color is appropriately golden with light haze and thick white head with fine bead visibly carbonated with lace that sticks as a film. The smell is very lemony/noble wth mild grass and dank herbal fragrance wiht slight mineral yeast ester. The feel is very bitter almost astringent/grassy in texture with light malt toastiness and medium high carbonation with dry and spicy finish.

The taste has a lot of spicy and lemony hop flavor with grassy quality and low malt in the taste with cracker-like dry flavor with a bitter dry finish that leaves a lasting sharp hop effect after the swallow. I am normally a fan of anything Victory does pilsner or lager-wise, but this was a little over the top, unbalanced perhaps lacking hop flavor and focusing more on bitterness

Pours a clean golden, with nice white head of foam. Light wisp of lace.

Nose is crisp malts and a touch of lemony hops. Nice.

Taste is sharp and punchy up front, but smoothed out by a firm malt character. The zesty lemon hops are prominent and add a perfect counterbalance for the grainy lager character. A delicious beer! Prost!
