Got at the Coliseum in camp hill. house brew made by victory. Body was a little thin had a slight citrus taste to it a hint of hops.
Earlier Rating: 4/3/2007 Total Score: 2.7
I wasn’t really impressed with this. body seemed thin, not much of an aroma, had a bit of a sweet taste to it, but nothing much other than that.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brown-amber w/ fizzy, diminishing light brown foam. Aroma of caramel & raisin bread w/ underlying notes of maple syrup & vanilla that is intruded upon by a mildly soapy yeastiness. Feel is oily but thin. Flavour is moderately sweet & moderately bitter. Disappointing, especially from Victory.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a dark brown, near-cloudy liquick with off-white, light caramel-colored head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a sweet, dark woody textured varnish. Flavor is a medium hop covering a faint malt with a very, very dry ending. Aroma is very interesting, flavor has been done before. Nothing special. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) I guess I always expect great things from Victory, but I’m a little underwhelmed by this boring beer. Toasty malts, mildly bitter and hoppy, and minimally sweet, there’s just not much here, and the dark malt all but disappears in the "lagerish" finish. It’s kind of like drinking slightly sweetened iced tea. Lightly toasty and malty nose isn’t very aromatic. Medium bodied when first sipped, but the finish is pretty watery. Orange-brown color isn’t the prettiest, and the small light tan head fades to the tiniest of rings. I’d been trying to get my hands on this beer for years, but I feel like I’ve been missing anything during my pursuit. Bland and boring.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Aroma of sweet fruit, some vomit. Flavor of earthy coffee, earthy fruit, vegetation. Not inspiring.

Copper color with a moderate off-white head. Scent of dry caramel, and herbal hops. Flavors of stale grain and toast. Just did not set well with me. Some DMS and perhaps bad line qualities. Mostly a drain pour. At least the bartender let me keep the glass.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Clear pale yellow pour. Weak nose that was hard to pick out even after it had warmed completely; maybe a grain or two in there. Odd taste of peanut shells, oak, and lightly roasted malt. Strange peanut shell finish. Overly buttery.
