Ernest (6597) - 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.

malrubius (2038) - 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 (5269) - 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 (841) - 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.

Weezel (231) - Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Awesome aromas of hay and a little but of funk. The taste is very crisp with a lemony zing to it and great thirst quenching carbonation. Finishes very clean and makes you want to swig again. Awesome fresh summer beer.

phaleslu (7363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2013
12 oz. can from The Party Source. Pours a bright but cloudy pale gold with a big bone white head that leaves some lace in the glass. Aroma of pale malts and lighter grains, grass, lemon, crackers, and dried fruits. Flavor of lemon, pale malts, mixed grains, grass, florals, corn, and very faint funk. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Very clean and refreshing. Good beer.

Not a bad basic beer. Has some corny sweetness, but it’s a bit too mild for its own good. Light and crisp.
