COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each year at the Craft Brewers Conference (CBC), Victory proudly showcases a variety of beers brewed exclusively for the German Hop Growers’ Association to demonstrate the diversity of German hop varieties. In 2014, the focus is on four new hop varieties release in 2012, Mandarina Bavaria, Hallertau Blanc, Hueli Melon and Polaris, and Hallertauer Pils with a "terroir-twist." With a fantastically bright aroma and lots of melon and citrus flavors, this very drinkable Pale Ale also features a minor malt presence before a very dry and quenching finish.

@CBC. Hazy pale, deep cantaloupe, mint, clean sweet pale malts. Rich fruity, melony, hits of orange, white oak, lingering bitterness, clean finish with a lingering fruity bitterness. One of the pales I’ve had in a while. Go Deuschland.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
hazy lemon, thin white wisps with strong lacing. Musky nose, lightly peppery with awesome grass notes. Flavor too hot, grass competes with faint orange candy and booze up front, drying hay mid with more grass and light dough merging into a standard German hop victory bitter, highly attenuated finish.

egajdzis (5290) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, tropical fruits, toast, and melon. Taste of citrus, light pine, tropical fruits, some citrus, and grapefruit in the finish.

callmemickey (2652) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Pale golden body, medium to thin white head, soapy lacing. Watermelon, floral notes and herbal citrus. Pilsner like malt base, but not too crackery. Medium to light bodied, gentle carbonation, mild bitterness, refreshing.
