Pissy yellow with not much on the head or lacing. Nothing special just an average beer. Disappointing.

Can shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear piss yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, toasted bread, grass, yeast, mild citrus, earthy hops. Nothing bad here, just not very exciting.

onceblind (4112) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Light gold with brilliant clarity, until the bottom of the can enters the glass, then it gets that yeasty haze. Big persistent foamy white head. Smells lovely with lemon rind, hay, tangerine sweetness, pilsner malts, and a certain hoppy dustiness thats also just a wee touch resiny. Semi-full flavored with a bright grainy sweetness on the front, a touch of toast, some lemon zest, a bit of tropical resin and sweetness, finishing on a semi-dry hay and barn note. Fast finish. Like a cross between a modern saison and a good quality lager.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
12 ounce can from Beer Run. Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, corn, yeast and a bit of zest. The taste is pale malts, citrus, banana, corn. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness, high carbonation.

Ernest (6232) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Can (canned on Sep 18). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cereal), moderately hoppy (flowers, lemon oil, grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a light note of pepper. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Fun little beer...some crude resinous hop odor, sure, but the hop bouquet offers more than just that (although I suspect if this were fresher it would be more resinous). Nicely balanced, crisp and clean bitterness. Even a little yeast character too. Can barely tell it has corn/rice, so it’s not like most of these beers that try to recreate pre-prohibition lagers. Nice chuggin’ brew.

Can. Hazy piss gold pour, big white head. Good retention/some lace. Aroma of corn, grassy/citrus hop, light ester, bread. Taste is lightly bitter, grassy/citrus, light cornbread, light ester. Palate is dry, average carbonation, light bitter finish.

Mittenator (1311) - Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Can. Pale, hazy yellow with a dense, white gead. Light clove and yeast aromas. Tart with some dry bitterness. Really clean.

malrubius (1726) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Can from Decicco Ardsley. Pale gold with chill haze fluffy head and lace. Lemony grassy pastry aroma. Very refined apricot fruit sweetness with grassy citrus rind medium very dry lingering bitterness. Light but not watery. Effervescent. Well attenuated for low abv thanks to specialy grains that I would have rejected had I read the description first. Fucking excellent.

notalush (4872) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Can - hazy gold - fluffy, well-retained head - I assume this is the same as Premium, minus the brett/bugs - nice, crisp, dry aroma, with floral American hops, moderate flint/mineral, mild peppery phenolics, light pils malt sweetness - soft carbonation - the slightest sweetness up front makes way a very crisp, dry beer, with a nice closing mineral bite - moderate bitterness, straw/hay, very subdued phenols - crisp, crackery, lightly peppery finish that leaves you thirsting for another sip - could easily be classified as a Belgian ale - a very nice session ale - I just wish it weren’t close to 12 bucks a six pack, otherwise it would be a go-to Belgian session for me - this is somewhat what I was hoping Victory Swing was going to be like.

pilgrimoutlaw (775) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Can pours cloudy straw colored with white head. Citrus, clams, white grapes, wheat, banana. Mild bitterness and sweetness. Light, creamy body. Nice, easy drinking session beer.
