3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Victory’s 10 Year Alt, I believe, is much higher than 4.7% at 7.8%.This special anniversary lager has been offered again on tap at the brewery for their 20th birthday. The lacing is good, and the malts and mouthfeel are the backbone for this one. However, there is a nice, bitter finish. Cheers!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-4-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a lighter copper-deep amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is lighter overall, but has notes of a lightly toasted bread and a bit of a herbal hop and a light sweetness of caramel.
Taste – The taste is very much as would be expected from the nose. It starts with a lightly roasted bready flavor mixed with a bit of caramel sweetness. The sweetness fades a bit as the taste moves on all while a herbal and slightly grassy hop taste comes to the tongue. These flavors are joined by some more light earthy flavors, to in the end, leave a rather light and crisp flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light and thin with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner body and moderate carbonation are good for the lighter flavors and create a very crisp and easy drinking brew.
Overall – More on the refreshing side, but a little bit low in the flavor profile which all in all makes for a nice easy drinking session brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brew pub. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma Is very malty with mostly caramel, maybe a light smoke. The taste is lightly sweet and lightly malty as well. There is a slight hopliness. This is good but sticke and double sticke set a crazy expectation for the style.
