Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly amber with an average size off-white head. Sweet aroma and flavour of grain, some fruit, malt and mild, slightly stale hops. Light bodied and bland. Tastes like a Lager and for a Victory beer it’s quite dissapointing. Just O.K.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks Pabobcat for the brew. Copper hue with a frothy tan head and good lace. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel, nuts, dark bread, slighty piney hops, earthy yeast and minor spice. Smooth and balanced taste with a of toasted malt and aromatic hop tone. Some fruitiness and spice also detected. Thin to medium-bodied with a soft mouthfeel. A good fest beer but nothing outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"you can taste the orange peel more than the coriander, the smoky black patent malt almost taking over the flavor and aroma...like a slightly funky good black lager more than a wit. points for uniqueness. this beer was stout dark but light-medium bodied, and had a lot going on, but was still drinkable. the mix of flavors didn’t quite come together as much as i’d hoped as some of the wit character was a bit overpowered, but it tasted good. dry finish and feel. aroma a bit weak and unassuming, otherwise a good beer."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a darker amber, large frothy white head, attractive lacing, with light carbonation. Malts, grains, bready but moreso wet hay on the nose. Smooth malty taste, lightly sweet. Some oat flavor as well. Decent body and mouthfeel. Crisp finish, clean, with linger malt and biscuity flavors. A decent Autumn offering. Thanks goes out to pineypower for the trade!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (12oz). Poured clear amber with basically no head. Aroma of pumpkin, vague slightly sour malt, pretty mild. Taste is a bit harsh, grain, stale hops, some light roast malt - there’s almost a hint of orange juice behind this one - it’s actually quite quenching, in a watery, nicely vegetal, flat way. The weakest Victory I’ve yet had, but still not bad.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent deep gold with white lacing. Smells of malt and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from the singles rack at Binny’s (Orland Park, IL). Poured a dark hazed carmel color, small off white head. Malty nose with slight spice. Tate is similar, bready and biscuity w/ carmelized malt notes. Slight spice in the finish, light bodied, maybe even thin, but very sessionable. Cheers!
