Growler from victory, into a ale glass. Pour is a light yellow gold with a nice head. Aroma is pure summer time, hops and grasses. Taste is smooth crisp and rounded. Finish is warm and sweet, Victory is a great brewer, and this is a great ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from 32oz growler at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, thanks to Drake. Pours clear bright yellow with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is spicy, floral hops with some light caramel bread malt, and a very German yeasty aroma. The flavor is more malt forward with the spicy, floral hops underlying and providing a bit of nice bitterness. The body is medium with very lively carbonation and a long malty caramel and touch of bitter finish.

Half-growler from Whole Foods shared at the Dumptown Inn on Friday night- thanks, Drake! Pours a pale, clear gold with no head. Notes of sweet and pale malts, straw, honey, sugar, and toast. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a malty, dry mouthfeel. Decent heller bock.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pours a clear true golden with an eggshell head that settles to a film and leaves some touches of lace. Nose involves soft, clean malt, some noble spice and light citrus notes. Somewhat sweet, quite bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily, softer action, creamy, with a tingly bitter finish. Tasty brew, on point style-wise.

>> Pours a clear, bright blonde. Nice medium white foam. Nose is apple, honeydew, house German lager yeast, fresh. Taste is soft, clean, light honeydew, sugar, noble hops. Clean and refreshing. Perhaps the first for this sometimes terrible style.

Medium to light body, light citrus aroma with hint of barnyard. Slick texture and fizzy. Tasty and very refreshing, but not quite as good as Loose Cannon or Dogfish hop beers.
