3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I like the ideology of this beer, being that I live right by the Brandywine. There’s a local pride knowing that the water in this beer is the same stuff running through my faucet. Pours a dark golden-brown with a light haze and an off-white head. nose is piney, with lots of caramel, citrus, and toast. Flavor is nice and bitter in the front, with loads of pine and citrusy hops. On the back end, it changes to a flush of caramel, and a finish of cereal malts and chex. Well-balanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a very clear orange with a half finger’s worth of head. Aroma is very herbal, with a bit of resin. The taste is very crisp, bitter, herbal with a clear finish. This is almost like a wet hop beer, minus any malty backbone that one might expect from an ipa. Body is very light. An excellent pale with a lot of attitude.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber pour with a moderate white head. Citrusy aroma with some hops. Flavor is exceptionally smooth, but a bit thin for my taste. A fine beer for having a few.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very crisp, refreshing beer. Aroma and flavor are both dominated by grassy hops, with a subtle hay, almost Pilsner flavor behind the main grassy taste. Some mild hop bitterness as well. Basically, it tastes the way a freshly mowed lawn smells. I’m a fan.

(12 ounce bottle - tumbler glass) Appearance has a translucent copper color. Fantastic spruce citrus hoppy aroma. Taste is similar. Awsome pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep golden color with a fair head. A well built pale with heavy hop presence and a slight bitter aftertaste. Hops have that piney, floral notes of possibly Cascade. With a manageable alcohol content a quite refreshing pale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I poured a 12 oz bottle into my DFH snifter. This sat reddish-orange and gave off a soft aroma of simcoe hops. The flavor nicely balanced hops and sweetness, but was much subtler than advertised. That’s not all bad, though. Combine restrained but tasty flavors with typical Victory drinkability, and you get an ideal lawnmower or session ale. Yet another nice offering from the folks in PA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz from the bottle. Aromas of light citrus rind, light pine, and a touch of toasted grain. The flavor follows the aroma, but is super refreshing! Damn drinkable and right in par. Bring this brew on

Lovely little beer. Light and grainy, leads onto a slight wet hop finish with a dash of vanilla on the tongue. Intetesting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very attractive deep golden color. Perfectly clear. Aroma of hay/grass - which I don’t find appealing. Taste is quite bitter without much of an accompanying malt or citrus flavor for balance. An OK drink but I’ve had much better offerings from Victory.
