3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Tyler's Durham. Light hazy golden with thick white micro-bubbled head. Really nice fresh hop nose, quite floral and fruity, pineapple and mango, even some guava, light lemon, bready malts. Flavor is lightly bitter, lightly sweet, strong breadliness, hops turn more herbal and grassy, light citrus. Definitely one of the best kolsch beers I have had, American or German. Could drink quite a bit of this on a hot day. Victory knows their lagers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
transparent gold, large bubbled white head recedes quickly to thick ring. Nose is heavy fruit, lemon and mango, honey, light dough crust. Flavor fruitier at front, more dough through mid before faint grass and lemon finish. Very light, drinkable, bit soapy throughout and little low on carbonation (though this accents malt profile).
