If you don't like pilsners, don't bother drinking this even if the only reason you're tasting it is to be able to add another beer to the list of beers you've tried. Or if you think you'll suddenly like pilsners.

Appearance was a bit cloudy and rather unremarkable.
Very grassy, distinctly lager aroma.
Taste was rather unremarkable. No hops to speak of, very plain. Tasted like a mass produced beer that had been cared for a little bit so as to remove the obvious imperfections.
Carbonation was very present, but a little hard.
Pretty drinkable I suppose, but not something I would have again.

I hate to say it, but my experience with this beer was that it's pretty mediocre. Generally, I'm a HUGE fan of victory. This is perhaps the weakest item I've sampled from their repertoire.

On draft, this beer poured a very pale golden color with a small head. The taste was quite mild, with no distinguishing characteristics to speak of. Neither hops aroma nor bitterness was apparent. Mouthfeel was light.

Of course, the lack of flavor makes this beer quite drinkable, but I wouldn't order again.
