3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear bronze with a minimal white head. Nose is semi-toasty cereal, I’m thinking cheerios, with an herbally, grassy (somewhat skunky) hop profile. Flavor is also toasty cereal grains, a little sweet, the hops have a bit of a resinous and floral character. I can tell that the water makes a difference. I really think the brew tastes "cleaner" but not "better". It finishes bitter and slightly metallic. Medium-thin mouth feel. Not worth the $11.50 a sixer you have to pay for it here.

Golden color with a foamy white head. Light citrus hop nose. Soft grainy malts with lemon and bitter orange peel hops. The finish seems a bit thin. Not much here really.

Sampled at Bigelos with Debbie and Joe. Filtered which is what many of their beers seem to be. This beer is citrus and softer malts. Citrus and some lemon notes. Grain. I like the citrus here and this is almost sessionable which is a bonus. Not bad at all.

Pale and slightly hazy, decent filmy head. Oaty grapefruit nose. Strawy grainy bitterness. Light, cereal sweetness.Comfy carbonation. Lemony linger. Solid enough but there’s no impact without being too watery.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, Cave, Glasgow. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small white head. Fragrant grassy hop and citrus in the snout. Uncomplicated sweet malt and grassy hop flavour . A little on the thin side and teeters towards the average side of the tracks. Not my favourite Victory offering.
