3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Mudville 9. A crystal clear golden one with a good looking dense and kinda lasting white top. Smells softly malty, a little bit of sweetness here and only subtle traces of grassy hops. Somewhat mild on the nose you’d might say. Tastes nice. A little bit of candy sweetness here, green pine cones and a light soapy bitterness. Not bad at all. Soft oily on the mouthfeel and just about average on the carbonation. Easy to drink, some dryness and a swiff of minerals in the finish. 20.06.2013

355 ml bottle. Enjoy by 03.12.2013.
Pours clear copper color with a large head. Aroma is very malty and nutty, some wet hay and faint hops with mild fruity notes. Flavor is also malty and nutty, resinous hops, caramel malts and grape fruits. Soft carbonation, bitter malty palate. A little past it’s prime it seems.

Pours amber. Smell is fruit and tea and malt. Taste is earthy and tea like. Some fruitiness and nice bitterness. Good body. Good beer but not spectacular.

I love the taste of hops and you can taste them in this brew. I downgraded the appearance score because the head dissipates so quickly as does the lacing. The head while its there is made of big bubbles like champagne not the flavorful tiny bubbles. But I do really like this beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This wasn’t one of my favorite Victory pale ales. I tasted this brew from a 12oz bottle. I’m guessing it was one of the hops used in the beer that didn’t quite agree with my palate. I sensed a sour and metallic taste up front in the body. That pretty much spoiled the rest of the beer for me. The second half of the flavors weren’t as harsh, as the beer smoothed out to a fruitier and grassier profile. The beer finished extremely dry and a bit spicy.
