Slightly dry, with biscuity and caramel malts, some herbal grassy hops. Rather uninspired, but decently executed.

Location: Draft sampling from a Victory Tasting at Whole Foods - Bowery, 2/19/10

Aroma: Nice hoppy nose, citrus, grass, bready malts, crackers
Appearance: Pours a golden/yellow color, white head
Flavor: Taste is leaning bitter, nice hop presence, lighter malt presence
Palate: Smooth, nice session beer, solid feel
Overall Impression: Victory’s attempt at a sessionable Pale Ale makes from a pretty nice beer. The beer rep sure was excited about this one, but hey, that’s his job. Anyway, I liked this beer, it’s solid. Only rater #4, obviously a pretty new one. I could see them keeping this one around, its pretty good.

Tap at Victory. Pours a ridiculously light golden - very clear- and nice lasting pure white head- some lace. Aroma is mostly spicy earthy and grassy hops with a light citrus kick- very light crackery dough malts. Flavor is also pretty light overall- esp for 5.5%? Light crackery malts, ok earthy grassy citrus hops, and a very very clean lightly bitter finish. Seemed too refined, and too dumbed down- lower on hops and malt than expected or wanted. Smooth and easy drinking though.

The Pursuit Pale is an enjoyable and delicious pale ale, but nothing really too exciting or to write much home about. It pours an amber color with a generous off-white head that leaves some great lacing around the sides of the glass. The nose is full of hops, earth, pine, a hint of grapefruit, grass and some earth. The body is silky smooth. This is a prime example of a session beer. One could really sit at a bar or at home or wherever and enjoy pint after pint of this. The flavors are decent, but nothing really outstanding. The Pursuit features a nice hoppy tone, with some caramel malt, bread and citrus flavors. The finish is tad dry as well.
