Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a lasting cap. The glass is left coated with chunks of soapy lacing.

Earthy aroma with a fresh grassy hop presence along with subtle spice, pale malt, light fruit and straw.

Medium bodied with a crisp hop bite up front that lingers over the pale malts into a dry finish. Dry and slightly spicy with grass and subtle pine flavor countered by pilsner malt, straw and light fruit.  Hoppy but not overly bitter with a some sweetness balancing things out.   There's surprisingly some boozy heat in the finish that hurts drinkability but this beer is still pretty refreshing.

On tap @ the VBC (Downingtown, PA) on 10/22/11. Served in a Pils glass.

Pours a crystal clear coppery gold, with a rich finger of bright-white head. This retains with a thin creamy frothiness that throws up some sudsy lacing that proceeds to hang in thick patches down the sides of the glass. This has a real nice look to it. The aroma is fresh and leafy smelling, with a light spicy and citric earthiness. There’s a touch of a medicinal or herbal quality here that hangs on the edges, while some tight feeling sweetness sits underneath. This really has a fresh brightness here that I’m digging.

The taste is fresh and crisp overall in the mouth, with a fruity citrus character that trails spice out into the mouth. There is a soft earthiness present that mellows the profile just enough to allow those toasted grains to show a bit more here than they did in the nose. This actually ends up having a pretty nice balance to it. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and even parts sharp and creamy, meeting in the middle to achieve a nice smooth crispness in the mouth that moves those flavors around nicely.

You usually just can’t go wrong with a fresh Pils at Victory and this one continues the streak. This was tight and crisp in the mouth, with more of a mellow and herbal hop profile that added to the overall accessibility of this. This was just so refreshing and another one that I could imbibe all day long.

Pours a clean yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, fresh hops and fruity. In the taste, fresh hops, a touch fruity, but standard European pils. A small hop bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry hop and small fruitiness in the aftertaste. A nice fruit and fresh hop in a pils.

Harvest Pils was written on the side, if this isn't correct, let me know.

Beer is yellow and clear with a soft white head of small bubbles, some lacing, nice carbonation, looks great.

Aroma is thin with a mild earthy bitterness and a good lager yeast smell.

Beer is thin and finishes wet with a mild bitterness on the back end the whole beer has nice connectivity but light on the flavor throughout. I enjoyed it, definitely a lawn mower beer for me, a nice little pilsner.

4.05/5  rDev +3.8%

Pale gold with sporadic clumps of surface foam. 3.0

Zesty hops with floral and tangerine flair. Grassy malts + citrus notes = super crisp aroma. 4.5

Crisp and bitter. Tart tangerine, lime, flora, grass, citrus zest, and some light sweetness. Kickass hoppy pils. 4.0

Clean flavor with a refreshingly light mouth. Nice carbonated sizzle. 4.0

Great pils from Victory. Big surprise there (sarcasm). 4.0
