3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber with a nice foamy head. Aroma is typical of a pale ale. Flavor is of bread and earth. Easy to put a few of these away. Finishes crisp and clean.

Bach party. Victory had a lot of very drinkable beers on tap, perfect for the time of year. If I had all day, I could have put down a ton of these. As it were, this was a pretty good "session" beer.

seemed like a pils. Has an okay body, sweet/citrus malt flavor, slightly grassy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head... Aroma of lemongrass and bread, very pilsener like aroma... Flavor follows suit with cereal, lemongrass and bread being dominant... Easily the most pilsenerlike golden ale i can remember... Medium thin, better than i was expecting... When a beer is classified as a golden ale something inside of me automatically assumes i wont like it... I was pleasantly surprised...

On tap at the brewpub. Really pale. Really clear. Really faint aroma. Really very little flavor at all. Really boring.

How funny! We now have what I guess is a tribute to a long vanished American Ale from Ballantine and it turns out that the Ballantine brand actually is still in use; it’s made by Miller. I wonder how Victory is going to finesse this! Ballantine never tasted this good when I was a kid. Pale crystal clear gold with surprisingly good lacing. Nose of floral hops and light malt, in balance. Taste again of light malts and great American hoppy bitterness. Average to light mouthfeel ... remember that Ballantine was not a micro but was a mass market brew. Again a surprisingly long surprisingly bitter finish.
