3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the RBSG ‘05 bottle tasting courtesy of Dickinsonbeer: Pours a dark copper amber with a lightly-lacing light tan head. Aroma is nicely malty and bready wit good German lager characteristics. Body has a pleasant, mild sweetness with good hop balance and drinkability. An enjoyable brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, Falling Rock (as Victory Special Lager). Head is mostly lasting. Body is dark amber to medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Not very inspiring, but reasonably decent for the style. A bit metallic in the finish, though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light off-white head quickly leaves the medium brown body. Fairly light flavors, bready maltiness pairing along an almost nutty, fruity toasted malt aspects. Good sweet-dry balance. More roastiness than most. Satisfying light body, perhaps a bit too tart, though we’re mostly talking fruit acids.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours a reddish amber, I expected it to be a bit darker in hue. Small and fading head as well and almost no lace. The aroma has notes of toffee and caramelized malts, overripened pear and apricot, floral hops, and earthy esters. The taste is also surprising with it fruity notes on top of the malt base. The finish is a bit chalky and spicy with some bitters. The feel is smooth and refreshing enough but does get a bit boring after half the bottle. Okay brew with enough qualities to make it quaffable worthy.

Draft. Pours an amber body with a thin off white head. Caramel malt, a nutty bitterness, almond, toasted malt with a thin session body. A straight forward amber that a bit above the grain.
