Served on-tap in a Shaker Pint at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Clear golden hue with short cap of small-bubbled white head with a small rim of lacing.

S: Crisp grassy aroma of noble hops with expected grainy pilsner malt with a touch of honey sweetness. No yeast aromas.

T: Braumeister Pils is a solid German pilsener with crisp grassy, floral, and spicy hops bite with moderate bitterness coupled with a great clean pilsner graininess with the same bit of honey sweetness and some breadiness in there too. No yeast or alcohol character, moderately bitter. Nothing fancy -- just a solid, well-brewed clean lager.

M: Crisp mouthfeel with balanced carbonation and light-medium body. Very dry finish.

O: Victory really has this style down - between this brew and Prima Pils they dominate the category, especially with the poor shape most imports are in.

A: Pours a golden yellow with a nice head, which dissipates leaving some lacing.

S: Grassy smell, some fruity smells, lemony.

T: Noble hops are outstanding, lemony taste, and the finish is sweet and balanced. Great tasting.

M: Light, CRISP, outstanding!

O: Great Pilsner, Victory does not miss. Clean and smooth great American style German Pils!

Braumeister Pils pours a very nice cloudy yellow with a nice white head. The nose has hints of toasted grains and nice amount of hops. There is some sweetness, typical for the style. A very nice pils with a good carbonation and a dry crisp finish. Perfect of the style.

Pours a pale yellow with a solid head that lingers well. Lots of lacing on the glass. Smells of pilsner hops - this version more floral. Taste is consistent with the smell - floral but with a bit of piney background. Compared to the Prima option at Victory this has a little less "pop" but still good.
