From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Victory Prima Pils

This beer's nose features notes of corn, grain, and biscuits. First sip brings
grain and bread.  By mid-taste the hops appear bringing a some bitterness,
with notes of pine and sweet grass.  A slight dryness hits at the crisp
finish with a noticeable hop bitterness. An enjoyable and solid pilsner that
just doesn't quite live up to it's lofty reputation.

Overall rating: Above Average
Bitburger Pils

This brew pours clear and golden with an attractive head of
foam.  Nose is very light with some  hops and citrus faintly
lurking. First sip brings bread up front, with floral hops and
sweet malt. The finish is clean with a small touch of bitterness.
A drinkable, basic pilsner.  Nothing more, nothing less.

Overall Rating -  average
Having sampled well over 3,500 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!

Climax Nut Brown

A soft, nutty malt scent greets you on first
pour. You quickly notice it is slightly low in
carbonation with a fairly thin mouthfeel.  
First tastes are of  malt, caramel, toffee,
with hints of chocolate.  The middle has
some sweetness with roasted malt and
earthy tones emerging. The sweetness
lingers in the finish as dark fruit notes
appear.  Appropriately soft, this is a
balanced, solid example of the style.
