Cunningham (5726) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2014
Appearance: Pale golden color with a white head.
Aroma: Mild fruity, mild citric and some yeast.
Palate: Medium body. Tad sweet, and a moderate bitterness. Flat (due to a punctured can fixed with electrician tape) carbonation.
Taste: Citric, yeast, fruity and a mild malty back.
Overall impression: Nice fresh thirst quencher. Think this would have been very nice with proper carbonation.
Personal stats: Can from a trade with Gunnar

onceblind (5692) - 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.

egajdzis (5622) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 [Draft] Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, honey, corn and grains. Taste of toast, grains, toffee malts, lemon, and lightly bitter. Nice, crisp, and simple.

TheBeerGod (5593) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Can. Hazy blond with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is strong floral hops, sweet malt, soft corn notes, light grains and herbal hops. Taste reinforces the floral hops along with more herbal hops, soft citrus, corn notes, sweet malt, grains and sourdough bread notes. Body is light-medium with a bubbly carbonation and lingering hop bitterness. Ends with big floral hops, citrus, herbal hops, earthy notes, corn, sweet malt, bread dough and grains.

Suttree (5579) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2014
I would not have guessed this is a corn based beer. I got some grassy notes and some faint tangy notes, but no corn. I even got a little bit of lightly fruity flavors. Tasty, regardless.

solidfunk (5466) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2014
Nice, especially for something with rice and corn. Nice bitter hay feel. Golden pour. Bitter finish. Well rounded, good balance. Tap at RFD.

notalush (5388) - 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.

Beerman6686 (5381) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2014
This poured a golden yellow with a white head. Aroma.was of.crowne, grassy and.citrus hops. Flavor sweeter, grassy hops, similar but cleaner than an American lager.

Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a large pure white bubbly head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light rustic malt notes with some dry hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by rustic malt notes with light dry ester and some bready yeast notes are also noticeable. Body is light with great carbonation. Very much enjoyable if maybe a bit short on the complexity notes with great drinkability level.

jgb9348 (5115) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Slightly cloudy golden coloured body with a rich, dense, three to four centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of very light hops, hay, grass, herbs and a bit of sugar. Light-bodied; Sharp light malt flavour with cardboard and grain with very little else on the body, just a big dose of strong hops, hay, grass and a bit of wheat. Aftertaste shows just the hops, grass and hay with a touch of sugar at the tail end. Overall, a very interesting beer - smells great, and the first few tastes are good, but then you realise there is no body and no depth at all. Still, not a bad beer, but just not amazing - great to sample and neat to try this based on the malt profile. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon (not even local to me/brewery) on 27-September-2013 for US$2.38 sampled at home in Washington on 07-October-2013.
