On tap at the brewpub. I believe this should be the entry for the current Harvest Pils, as it's 5% abv and is not marked as being a Braumeister variant. Poured a light gold with a small fluffy white head. Notes aren't super detailed on this -- struck me as similar to the Prima Pils but with a softer feel and a more raw hop profile throughout. Not as sharply hoppy as the Prima, but perhaps more persistent and more straightforward. Very pleasant, soft feel, tight and crisp, grassy, and with a very soft lightly sweet quality in the mid palate that was pretty unique. Victory has mastered this style.
