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 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.
Hoppy pilsner. Not at all like an Urquell, more floral hop flavor. Not much of an aroma, nice head, medium-golden color.
Deep straw color, Three finger soapy head that wont go away light carbonation. aroma of european hops grassy hay like smell and like riverstone. mild sweetness up front changing into nice mild bitterness with a light malt backbone really drinkable excellent pilsner!
great hoppy pils brewed with local water that is similar to Munich (believe it or not). Clean, Crisp with a slightly dry finish that makes you want more.
U really need to eat something with this (I had Italian nachos) or the bitterness can be overwhelming. Second try better than the first. @OCF
Great pilsner and I generally don't care for pilsners. Great bitey taste with a good amount of hops. Great summer beer when you're not in the mood for an IPA.
True to Pils style.
One of my favorites from Victory, and not just because it comes in the sampler case. A Victory twist on the classic pils. I'd say it's a bit more hop forward than many East German/Czech Pils, in an Americanized kind of way. But that works to its advantage. Well made, good flavor and aroma.

It tasted very sweet. There was a light malt flavor blended with a grain taste. It had a nice bitter hop kick.
Crisp, Noble...American...Odd, this is actually a good Pils but, it has more of an American feel to it than it's euro brethren.
a really great pilsner, gives credit to the style and makes you wish the rest of them were this good
Poured from 12oz into pilsner glass. Crystal clear, gold, small but lasting white head that laces. Both nose and taste showed significantly more malt and hop than you would expect from a pils, but still well balanced. More hoppy than most pilsners I've had, and certainly more bitter, but a good strong malt backbone to balance. All in all, very well rounded, flavorful, clean finishing, and very drinkable. Excellent beer. Pilsners are not my favorite style, but this is my favorite pilsner.
If all pilsners were like this I wouldn't have to make fun of the crap that is Bud and Coors and Miller! Very well balanced!
