COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exhibiting a deep, chestnut color and malty aroma All Malt Dark Lager is a very inviting beer. Mildly malty, with little lingering sweetness to note, Dark Lager is surprisingly refreshing. This is beer as it was meant to be, firm and satisfying. Seasonal specialty available January - April on draft.

Draft. Pours copper with minimal head. There is tons of carbonation in the glass. Aroma is mostly bread and a little malty sweetness. Taste is pretty crisp without much distinction. Okay...

Tap at Victory. Pours a clear Vienna SRM, light amber, with small, white foam. Weak formation. Sweet, toffee nose. Baked apples come through. Taste is tangy, soapy, fairly tannic with tea leafs. Slightly buttery and toffee through the finish. Not my favorite. Suddy palate. I’ll stick to their pilsners.

Draft from diamond. Nutty brown pour with reddish hilights. Not much head. Yeasty malty hoppy. Not that special.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2012
First brew of this style. The body was a clear brown, and for a light colored beer, the nose was huge on toffee and roasted malts. As for the taste, it was very malty and lightly roasted with hints of caramel and hops. Unbalanced and sort of sweet, but drinkable nonetheless.

This is a very different beer. Wonderfully malty and flavorful. I think the difference must be the slight sweetness, yet it is surprisingly good!

Not bad. Definitely not one of the top beers at Victory but not a bad addition to the sampler. I would say the appearance was the highlight in a sampler with all pillsners...@GT2 feel free to add

Pours deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, grass and toast. Taste is sweet with the caramel coming through nicely. Light and easy to drink.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Draft at the Haddon Township location. Pours a dark golden orange/copper color with tangerine hues and a half finger white head that slowly settles into a thin ring. Sporadic streaks of lace left behind. Slightly floral aroma with some earthy hops along with a sweet malt presence. Slightly toasty with hints of caramel and toffee. Fuller bodied than expected with a nice crisp hop presence up front that provides a dry bitterness that lingers over the malt into a sweet and slightly dry finish. Some grassy pine notes countered by the sweetness with hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit. There’s some bready yeast adding fullness and light fruit notes in the finish. Well balanced and easy to drink. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Brown-tinged amber with a light ring of head. Easy malty and nuttiness in the nose with excellent use of traditional Munich malt. The body is accented by Munich malt and subtle nuttiness and also flashes honeyed grain notes and touches of fresh grain and sawdust. Dry finish.

From a growler fill at VBC into a dimpled mug. Pours a light brown, very clear color with a half inch of head which dissipates quickly leaving no lacing. Not much aroma at all. Mouthfeel is light and crisp... very Victory-like! Taste is extremely mild. It’s hard to describe really... but it’s tasty! Anyway, this is a veeeeeeeerrrrrrry drinkable beer with a good amount of taste. I bought a growler of this and will likely kill it in a couple days. A top notch session beer that I’m happy to order again!
