Enjoyed at pub as well as growler right now - very beautiful golden color, virtually no haze, with medium to full head that is white in color. At least some residual head remains over time. Aromas of bread, grain, and light grass are noted. On the palate this one comes across somewhat dry with a mineral component that reminds me a little of Dortmunder beers. Nice dry bready flavors are noted as well. Good body to enjoy as a filling beer on its own, but yet light enough for exceptional drinkability and pairing with foods. Wish this one was bottled.

Served on-tap in a Shaker Pint at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Clear golden hue with short cap of small-bubbled white head with a small rim of lacing.

S: Crisp grassy aroma of noble hops with expected grainy pilsner malt with a touch of honey sweetness. No yeast aromas.

T: Braumeister Pils is a solid German pilsener with crisp grassy, floral, and spicy hops bite with moderate bitterness coupled with a great clean pilsner graininess with the same bit of honey sweetness and some breadiness in there too. No yeast or alcohol character, moderately bitter. Nothing fancy -- just a solid, well-brewed clean lager.

M: Crisp mouthfeel with balanced carbonation and light-medium body. Very dry finish.

O: Victory really has this style down - between this brew and Prima Pils they dominate the category, especially with the poor shape most imports are in.

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, floral, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grassy and floral hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice balance of malt and hops all around.
