Poured from a chilled 12 oz. bottle into a lager (unfortunately) glass.

Light golden color, lighter than hay, two fingers of head and some aeration, but not much.
Aroma: Some hops but definite hints of citrus in there.
Taste: Gorgeous hoppy taste but no bitterness. Lots of citrus notes: orange and lime. Lovely complex hoppy aromas combined with plenty of orange and lime after notes. Just a super pilsner.
Mouthfeel: No bitterness or any unpleasantness -- just a good flavor.

This pilsner is way up there in taste, sophistication, complexity and just reeks quality. If I didn't live in Downingtown PA (home of Victory Brewing Company) I might have rated this my favorite pilsner.
