DATE TASTED: May 24, 2015... GLASSWARE: Paulaner polar... OCCASION: Cavs/Hawks game three after a good visit at Bob’s... APPEARANCE: The second night of Hop Tickets offers a similar, though not as over the top as the IPA, but the head is as soapy, rocky and effervescent as ever; head itself is a four-finger tower; its body is a mostly translucent, slightly hazy yellow; lacing is puffy cotton balls... AROMA: slightly metallic ping of Saaz and Hallertau for floral allure....PALATE: thin, lightly oily and unassuming--refreshing, but not as bright as promised; dry, but resonates on the sides of the tongue...TASTE: a sweet, citric, slightly peppery mixture that creates a textured though soft experience; slight banana and pear; some doughy biscuit suggests the malt late ... OVERALL: mellow and fruity in places, but not a pilsner that ranks highly in my regards with others; a bit of lemon late gives some profile to a Victory beer that is not quite up to the Victory name; still, a beer whose alcohol is balanced with its flavor and drink ability...

Fairly floral and slightly citrusy aroma, with crackery malt and a touch of pilsner skunk. Flavor is fairly bready and lightly sweet, with a bitter, biting, crisp finish. Figured the dry hoping would contribute more aroma. Becomes herbal in aftertaste.

A - Looks good a 1/4 inch of head that sticks around for a bit atop of a bright clear yellow pils.
S - Pilsner green grassy smell very little skunk actually with a good bitter hop character.
T - Good flavor mild grassy hops meets some skunky pilsner bitterness. Works quite well as most dry hopped takes on this style does.
M - Light to medium very easy to drink. Definition of session.

Overall its rotating so its still being brewed which is nice. Would love to get a mixed case with this tasty stuff.
