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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: The aroma is rather light and consists of light fruit, grass, and lemon peel. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a three finger soapy head that has pretty good retention before fading to a very thin ring. There’s a good amount of clumpy lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a slight hint of citrus with some faint bready notes. The finish has light grass with a touch of lemon peel. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, an okay summer thirst quencher. Why is this listed as Specialty Grain?

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
