Draft at brickside grille. Pours clear yellow with minimal head. This looks like a macro lager to the Max. The aroma is minimal with some light biscuit and bread notes. The taste is light hay, light biscuit. Nothing special but drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from JC’s, pours clear, light straw yellow with a clinging white head, nose clean and sunny citrus with pleasant light noble hops and a touch of grain. Very soft, lightly crisp medium body, citrus and bread, a bit more on the sharper/tangier side but all the more refreshing. Clean and has some zing, touch grainy-grassy, low bitterness, moderately dry. I could do with a pinch more hops but it’s nice as is.

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).
