look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a honey color from my authentic Victory growler. The body looks slightly hazy and lacks a really good carbonation profile.
Heads a bright white with a loose structure, fades quickly leaving wispy lacing.

Aroma has an upfront hop bouquet with sutle malts. Spicy and medicinal.

Taste is upfront some spicy pepper.

From the growler taste a bit thin and watery.

A good looking beer with a nice aroma taste is a bit weak but still good to the last drop.

Musically I'd pair this beer to Gov't Mule's verision of simple man.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

A golden color with a bit of haze. Thin white cap. Some lacing.

Grainy and bready aroma with something unpleasant and somewhat off-putting. Reminds me of American adjunct lagers, unfortunately. Little hop presence, was expecting more.

Taste follows the nose nearly identically.

Thin to medium mouthfeel, appropriate for the style.

Not a beer I particularly enjoyed. Pretty in the glass, but a lackluster aroma and flavor.

The almost deep gold brew had a massive head from the growler. great lacing. The head fell uneven and in deep chunks. looked great. The beer is not quite clear. barely cloudy.

Smells like grapefruits, a bit floral, slightly vegetal, and that little yeast kick in the nose I get from many Victory beers.

Grapefruit flavors follow from the aroma to the taste. Floral presence as well. Hits everywhere on the tongue, leaving it pleasantly coated for a moment before leaving entirely. very refreshing.

Warning: Extreme drinkability!!!

Thanks to mymrnngjckt for grabbing a growler of this for me at Whole Foods.

Pours a slightly hazed pale golden color with a pillowy two inches of bone white head. Keeps a full lace and coats the glass nicely with some rings of stick.

Smell is very hop forward with some really nice grassy and lemony aromas. Has a spicy element as well but the grassiness is the most pronounced Has a doughy sweetness as well with some grainy notes.

At first I didn't think the taste was quite as hoppy as the nose but it only took a few more sips for me to reverse my opinion. It is very grassy, not as lemony, but spicier than the nose and with a pretty substantial bitterness for a pils. Very light sweetness and some grain as well, with some grassy bitterness left on the palate in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good crisp feel, although perhaps not quite as crisp as I like from a pils Clean finish and very dry with the hop bitterness.

This is a really tasty pils and it's surprising how bitter it is given that it's a fresh hop beer. It's up there in bitterness for a pilsener of any persuasion. For my money I still like Prima better but I like Prima better than just about everything so that's no knock on this beer. A very tasty, enjoyable beer for sure.

poured from growler into an irish pub glass, very nice pale yella elixer with a nice bright white two finger head that disapated medium slow and left nice lacing
excellant pilsner nose with a touch more hop than expected from the style
nice delecate pils flav with some very good hop forward flavors that mesh well
the carbonation is spot on and goes well with the pilsner style
would like to find this on tap regular for sessioning
