COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Victory Amber Lager: Orginally made to the specifications of Pat Patton, owner of Hero's Restaurant in Manassas, VA. Victory Amber is a soft, smoot tasting beer made with an ale-style recipe using lager fermenation and conditioning techniques with the following malts: Two-Row Pale, Munich, Carapils, and Caramel. Perle, Willamette, and English Kent Golden hops are used. The beer is unfiltered and the remaining yeast, high in Vitamin B, gives the beer its unique opalescent amber color.

An excellent representation of the style. Crisp and clean. Nice after tast. One of my favorites.

Just a solid Lager. Itís not the greatest loager Iíve ever had, but itís definitly in the top 20. When you donít know what keg to buy. This one is always a winner.

bubbleflubber (1746) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Pours on draught an orange-amber, with a thin ring head and trace lace. Maybe some light (and very much so) bubblegum and sweet malt aromas... a bit underdone. Some caramel malts, aerated sugars, and light pale malts throughout, well-integrated, but not very complex. The finish introduces a touch of hops. The body is medium-light. Ok for an amber, and could make for a session brew in some settings, I suppose.

Not so great. Bland lager, moderate bitterness, but light and simple. Too many other decent lagers out there to spend time with this one.

On Draft @ Old Dominion Brewhouse, Washington DC. Pours amber color with white head. Aroma malt and very light hops. Taste roasted malt and mild bitter hops with bitter finsih

Draught at Old Dominion Brewhouse, Washington DC
Blond color, big head. Not the aroma (too light) nor the color reveal anything amber, just the flavor shows some nutty touch. Correctly bitter.

Listed as a California Common style. If I were Victory Brewing Company Iíd be all over Dominion with a cease and desist for their "Victory Lager"! No aroma, light pale gold straw in color. Grainy, under-attenuated flavor. More like a pils than a Ca. Common. Slight diacetyl flavors are about the only flavor this beer had.

on tap-pours a thin white head and slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is medium malt. Taste is medium malt-some sweet, yeast, secondary hops bite. OK carbonation.

Draught at the Old Dominion Brewhouse in DC. Nothing really special about this beer, which tastes mostly like any regular old lager. Grassy, malt taste. The beer is easy to drink, which is the only real reason why Iíd have it again.
