What I expected from a pilser. Nothing special. Good, not great.
Hoppy for a pilsner. Smooth tasting.
Poured from a bottle into a flute glass
Appearance: Light gold, slight chill haze, but I think was due to poor handling at the store. 2 Finger white that lingers. Slight lacing/
Aroma: Floral hops dominate with slight grain, but balanced toward the hops.
Taste: Decent bready taste, but citrus hops dominate. Slightly minty flavor behind the citrus.
Mouthfeel: Well attenuated, clean. Par for the course.
Overall: liked the malt and lack of alcohol in the aroma, but a little too heavy on the hops for the style IMO. Highly drinkable, would definitely recommend to others.
Why are American pils consistently so hoppy? It's fine. It's better than many American Pilsners, but if your looking for an American take on a traditional German or Czech style pils, this isn't it.
Very good lager. Would recommend anyone looking for a full flavor beer.
Malts - 2-row German Pilsner. Hops - German and Czech wholebflowers. ABV - 5.3%. 12-oz. bottle to pilsner glass. Pale gold color with a foamy, 2+ finger, white head. Good retention and lacing. Hoppy, herbal, grapefruit nose with notes of pine and resins. Slightest bit of up-front maltiness, then grapefruit, then piney solvents at the end. The body is heavier than I expected. Dry, crisp finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste.
Golden yellow with a thick, dense head that would not go away! Great pilsner taste, smooth and just bitter enough. Easy to drink other than being a bit too fizzy. The only major drawback was the aroma. I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old so I have been changing diapers for about 3 out of the last 4 years. This beer had a great taste, but it smelled just like a full diaper genie. As nice as the taste is, the dirty diaper smell of this beer is just too nasty.
Pilsner done right. Extremely fizzy and refreshing but not overly so, leading to great drinkability. Strong hops aroma and flavor present. However, like the carbonation, it's in perfect balance-it asserts its presence with a deep, rich bitterness upon first drinking, reminding you that you're drinking a German pilsner, but then fades and gives way to wonderful floral and citrus notes, which add to the refreshment factor.
Liquid gold starts with a lemony nose and moves into a bready taste. Light body makes easy going drink.
Light yellow classic pilsner color. White head fades fast leaving some lace. Nice hops nose followed by full malt flavor and then a dry pilsner bite. Refreshing but not light with more flavor than appearance suggests. Growler pour.
Good straw color. Very good aroma with a nice grain. A little too bitter as a pils for my taste. But over all a drinkable pils.
Pretty smooth drinking beer
Hoppier pils. Bubbly with a dryer finish
Everything about this pils is average. It was lacking the distinct hops punch I was hoping for from a German pils, missing from both the aroma and the taste. It was, however, quite drinkable. I don't know why, but to me this tasted more to me like a typical American adjunct lager.
Pours a cloudy gold, with about one finger of head which lingers throughout and leaves a little lacing on the glass. Due to the hopping, this pils has a much sharper taste than a more traditional version. It's not bad, per se, it's just not what was expected from a pilsner. It did begin to grow on me. Has a thinner mouth feel.
The head on this brew disappeared fast, the color is pale on account of the cloudiness, which was a surprise, and the aroma comes across as chemical. The taste, however, is very appealing, being both slightly bitter and clean.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a Pilsner glass.
A-Label stamped Best by: April 21, 2012.
A lovely light yellow-gold-straw color. Thick white 1 finger head. Nice lacing.
S-Light floral hop aroma, slight malt.
T-Lemony with a slight bitterness. A little sweetness, not aggressive.
M-Nice dry finish, that makes you want to drink more.
O-Another winner from Victory! Could keep on drinking this one over and over.
Clear pale golden in color and small head but a lot of lacing. The flavor and smell was heavy pink grapefruit from assertive hoping. Paired well with pulled chicken barbeque, but not my taste.
