Draft pint at the Norse Bar.

Pale straw gold body, lasting rings of sticky white lacing. Bright clarity with some languid streams of ascending carbonation rising through the liquid. Good head retention, foam remains after a couple sips, skim breaks across the surface.

Crackery pils malt aroma, some dry grassiness of noble hops as well. Seems slightly hoppier than the average pils, but much less so than Prima Pils.

Dry with a good presence of grassy noble hop character, lightly bready with some crackery malt depth as well. Light feel with crisp carbonation, this is a nice sessionable pilsner. Maybe not in my personal top three, but it's very well made and would be a great beer to have around on tap all year round.

2016: Seems a bit more sweet than the previous sample. Malt sweetness lingers slightly, aftertaste is somewhat dry and grainy.

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.
