Bach party, draft. It’s really astounding how many lighter ales and lagers Victory had on tap. Blonde ale, vienna, 3 or 4 pils, etc. But they were all good, and this was no exception.

Clear amber color, nice standard looking vienna... Sweet bready aroma... Malty, slightly sweet a bit dry, a very nice vienna lager... I definitely prefer this to the V lager that is bottled...

For the style, this is pretty good. Not a lot of aroma, mostly bread, yeast, malt. Flavor is malty sweetness. A bit thin. Pretty good though.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a fantastic Vienna-style lager. It pours an absoutle clear amber color with a soft but generous white head. This beer leaves quite a bit of sticky lacing to the edges of the glass. The aroma is full of bready malts, with deep and rich notes of toast, light caramel, earth and flowery hops. The body was full and delicious, with flavor notes of bread, yeast, toffee and light caramel. The finish was a little dry and hoppy, with a smooth and silky sweet and malty flavor. This is one lager that could survive at Oktoberfest.

.5 liter at Victory. Pours clear ambery copper with a full off white sticky tight head and great lace. Aroma has tons of fresh bready malts, medium toast munich and caravienna, light crackery hint, and fresh spicy hops. Flavor is full of fresh tasted malts, baked french bread, and toasted/honey malts- moderately sweet with light caramel and a nice spicy hop balance - good clean and smooth finish. Another great Lager from Victory.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Victory - A nice lager, but this one has a funky almost pungent flavor. Aroma is bready and malty which didn’t seem to translate to the beer. An overly complex flavor.

Draught at Victory: Aroma of toasting, slight chocolate, malts, and slight roasting. Poured amber in color with a small, off-white head. Sparkling. Slightly hazy. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malts, lager yeast, toasting, slight alcohol, dough, and nuts. Medium body. Smooth, oily texture. Soft to average carbonation. Malty, slightly boozy finish.

Not too much my style, but this was a pretty good vienna style lager. Nice copper appearance with a nice lager bitter finish.

My reaction to most lagers is to say, "only a lager" and that’s almost true of this one. Yes, a Vienna malt looks a little better, with a rich dark copper tone, and tastes a little better, with more caramel and nutty overtones. Still just a lager, but a good one, with nice floral notes up front and a touch of bitterness in the finish.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Aroma of tart raspberry, crisp apple, some alcohol. Flavor earthy fruity sweetness. Tartish finish, and pretty easy drinking despite the sweetness.
