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.

pour is transparent light gold with a foamy slightly off white head. Nose has strong grain, lightly sticky malt, soapy hops, herbal, lightly resignous. Taste is more herbal, strong bitterness, grain is much more muted, citrus comes through in the finish. Lightly carbonated, fairly dry.

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.

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.

On-tap at Stag's Head, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear straw yellow in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that slowly died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of grassy hops in the nose.
T: like the smell, the taste has flavors of grassy hops along with hints of spicy hops towards the finish. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This isn't as balanced compared to the regular Prima Pils but is an interesting pilsner on its own.

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.
