Bright yellow in color with good clarity. Just a touch of haze at first that clarified as this warmed up. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Clean bready malt and dank floral hop aromas followed by spicy herbal aromas with a hint of lemon zest. Medium bodied with tangy herbal hops and carbonation through the middle and a clean, crisp, dry finish. Bready malt, spicy herbal and rye flavors with lemon zest on the edges. Floral hop flavors emerge toward the finish as this finished crisp and dry with a bready, bitter aftertaste. An excellent pils with signature Victory floral hop highlights.I

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Pilsner glass.
Appearance: Rich gold with good sized, stark white head.
Smell: Lemon, hay and pepper mostly. Not as much apple as noted in many Pilsners.
Taste: Despite some strong hop notes of lemon, citrus, flowers and pepper, this is surprisingly restrained. Some hay and apple notes but not as much as expected. Finish is spicy and lightly bitter.
Feel: Heavier body than expected but nice carbonation and a great, dry finish.
Overall: I had a Prima Pils right afterward for comparison, and this is definitely a little more unorthodox with unique hop notes and less emphasis on the traditional malt taste. However, this is surprisingly less bitter and sharp than the more traditional, but very hoppy, Prima Pils. Both are great beers.

Summer sampler is out in the Burgh, Beer Express to be exact...$31.99 a steal for four beers. This dry hopped pils, a session IPA, Summer Love, and the return of Whirlwind witbier. Enjoy by 10/14/14 seems a bit generous but what ever if I find more I will drink it.
This pours a deep golden slight chill haze, bright white foam head fine speckled lacing. Beautiful appearance, how do I get a full case of this Victory is king of the pils. All of the varietal Braumeister pils, Prima, and anything lagered for the most part.
Aromatics bright fresh whole cone hops make all the difference citric, earthy, fresh cut grass I'm all in...does it right for me. The blasts of dry hops almost mask the biscuit malt and fresh baked bread from the perfect grain bill utilized in this refreshing summer pils.
Flavor bitter noble hops, citrus/lemon peel notes, hay/fresh cut grass, earthy and a bit dank...really nice malt presence once the initial hop blast fades rich pilsner malt gives the bready/biscuit malt complexity that I want in a pills just a bit of faded grainy husk character in the finish but nearly perfect.
No off flavors bone dry finish, really makes you consume this beer without effort...carbonation is dead on carries it well through each sip. Definitely sessionable, I'm glad I got my Hop Ticket fix.
I bought a case of the summer Victory variety pack with only a sixer of this available for $31.99, I'd love to grab a sixtel at some point to make it more accessible.

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!
