On tap at the Hard Times Chili Parlor on King Street in Alexandria. Pours golden with a small, off-white head. Malty aroma, with a nicely balanced malt flavor and a mildly hoppy finish. An excellent accompaniment to the establishment’s fine chilis, and it’s just $2.00 a pint from 5-7 pm.

Poured a golden color with a small white head. Aroma of toasted dough, sweet malts and light hops, dry. Lightly hopped, citrus, dry toasty qualities. Medium carbonation.

An excellent session beer. I buy this every week on free pint night. Which is every tuesday night, for anyone that wants to join me. (free pint glass)

As I drank this beer at the Victory brewpub, I found myself thinking: Geez, this is one terrific...pizza! For those who don't know, Victory makes incredible brick oven pizzas. Oh, turning to the beer. For once, Victory Brewing demonstrates that they don't have to overhop each and every beer they make. This lager is much less-bittered than their All-Malt Lager and is a session lager. Forget their horrible Milltown Mild, this Hard Times Lager is the thing to drink in quantity.

Dark golden, clear ... an alcohol-malt aroma. Smooth. Very malty flavor with a sense of alcohol even though it's not that strong.

A truly beautiful, brilliantly clear lager, enjoyed draft at the Victory brew pub. I don’t think that it is available in bottles yet. Taste of light malt and bitter hop in balance, served at perfect temperature, but in the end it is just a lager, one of my least favorite styles.
