4.88/5 rDev +20.2%
The beer pours mostly clear with a hint of haze to it with a nice straw color. The pure-white head quickly reduces to almost nothing in a pilsner glass, leaving scant traces of foam along the sides as it disappeared.
The aroma is very mild. It's completely dry: white pepper from the Tettnang hops with no hint of malt affecting the smell.
The first taste is silky-smooth with a hint of graininess. The hops are not as strong as the Prima Pils but they're just perfectly balanced. This may be the driest pilsner I have ever tasted. There's little if any aftertaste. More white pepper on the tongue as well.
As incredible as the Prima Pils is, Victory's Braumeister Tettnanger Pils surpasses it in almost every way. More balanced and easier to drink: this is the kind of pilsner I was looking for when I was in Germany.

On-tap at the Meridian Pint in DC:
I had wanted to try one of these for some time and given where I live, a virtual beer wasteland, we typically only get the usual Victory suspects, so when I saw this on tap, I did not hesitate.
The beer appeared a nice, crystal clear, golden yellow with a nice thick white head that was well retained with carbonation bubbles rising to the top of the glass.
The beer gave off a nice hop aroma, but not overly hoppy, but perhaps more than expected, as most pils are not so hop forward.
The beer had a very good taste, well balanced and extremely easy to drink.
The beer had a light feel to it and finished with a dry aftertaste. The beer had good carbonation. Overall, just another example why I think that Victory is the best craft brewer out there.

This is one of my favorites from Victory. It pours a perfect clear filtered yellow with a nice off-white head. Perfect taste of bitterness with the fresh Tettnang hops. For my taste the Tettnang has better amount of piney citrus zip than the Saaz hops. It also perectly dry. Simply a great Pils - for me it is as good as Prima Pils. I wish they would bottle it year round.

Poured from a growler into a pint glass. Purchased at the Victory Brewpub on 3/5/13. Victory lists this as the Braumeister Pils - Tettnang, a Keller Pils at 4.7% ABV.
Appearance: Pours a golden yellow with a thick white head. Ever so sightly cloudy with calm carbonation bubbles.
Smell: Spicy Euro hops. Somewhat grainy malt aroma. Grassy notes and wet dog aroma (but in a good way).
Taste: Clash/mix of German and Czech Pils styles. Bitter throughout the palate. More bready than the Braumeister Hallertau. Tastes very good!
Mouthfeel: Bone dry, despite the sweet bready malt notes in the flavor. Full body, but not heavy.
Overall: Another well crafted, draft only winner from Victory. I like and respect that, in addition to their regular ale lineup, Victory makes a number of different European style lagers. In fact, I took the family go on a four hour round trip adventure to the brewery just to sample some of these draft only Braumeister offerings.

Everything a pilsner should be. Nice golden color with a good head. The brewpub's new growler system seems to be working well.
Nice grassy smell and taste from the Tettnang, but not overwhelming. Pleasant and appropriate hoppiness. Grassy.
I've never had a Braumeister Pils that wasn't excellent.

On tap at Max's today.
The beer pours a solid gold color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is all pils goodness, showing honey, bread dough, light orange citrus and white pepper. The flavor profile generally replicates the nose in this delicious pils, but with surprising flavor intensity. The beer is refreshingly dry and bitter, but with just enough malty honey flavor to keep the hoppy bitterness in balance. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a fairly long, crisp, bitter finish. Drinkabilty is excellent in this well crafted pils, with the modest alcohol well integrated into the flavor profile.
Another well made pils from Victory. When it comes to pils, no one I know does it better.

A - This beer pours a slightly hazy golden color. It has a nice 2-finger white head on it. The head has good retention, and leaves some scattered lacing on the glass.
S - It smells of light pilsner malts and lemongrass. There is also a decent hop presence, honey, and some breadiness.
T - The taste is of pilsner malts, and is dry and bitter. There is some honey-like sweetness that balances it out. There is also a grassy/earthy flavor. The taste is very refreshing. The finish is clean.
M - This has a medium body and crisp carbonation. It goes down easy and is very refreshing. It is dry, and has an earthy bitterness to it.
O - This has good drinkability. I could easily drink a bunch of this. It is a very refreshing and delicious pilsner. I recommend giving this a shot if you come across it. I will definitely, buy more of this if I have the chance.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.
Pours a fizzy golden yellow. Small but ok looking head. Not much lacing.
Smells like toasty grain and and herbal grassy hops.
Tastes the same, but more magnified. Very grassy hop flavor from the Tettnang hops. Very pleasant. Bit of spiciness to the hops as well, leaving a pleasant bitter aftertaste in your mout after every sip.
Very light but good mouthfeel. Well carbonated.
A great easy drinking pilsner with outstanding, simple hop flavor. I could certainly put a few of these back easy- seems like the sort of beer that would improve with multiple in a session.

On-tap, served in a pint glass
A clear copper color with a small off white cap. The head fades quickly and leaves no discernible lacing, just a thin collar around the edges. The nose is of grainy pilsner malt, lemongrass, some flowers, bread, and white pepper. This guy is extremely clean and simple. On the palate, there is a bit of sweetness up front before a floral, bitter, spicy wave from the tettnang. The finish is a touch peppery, but mainly a balance of sweetness and floral bitterness. Crisp and dry. Light body with low carbonation. Victory has again shown their mastery of German malts. This is a clean, simple beer with a solid punch of flavor. Nothing over the top, well within the style points.
