3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Gold pour with a trifling white head. Aroma had some grassy hop, citrus and biscuity malts in the house. Lightish body. Flavour was dry and crisp with notes of lemon, grass and a little pine. Solid enough with ok hoppage but this doesn’t rank amongst Victory’s finest.

Nose is floral hops, honey/grainy/bready sweetness. Flavor is same with a light bitterness that cuts through the sweetness nicely.

Tap@ Flying Pie: clear gold color with a small white head. Fairly strong hop aroma with a solid hop backbone in flavor. This is my kind of Golden Ale!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft ar Fado. Gold pour. Foamy white head. Some lace. Feels like a mildly hopped up pilsner. Mild. Nothing offensive. Beats a Bud. Could be a nice suggestion for individuals a bit scared of IPAs. Otherwise not extraordinary.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl.
Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - dried lemon peel, slight cakiness. Kinda panetonne of sorts.
Taste - really tangy lemon peel, then something tropical, maybe melon. Light cake in the background again.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - would definitely go down well in summer. Good bitterness.

Bottle into glass. Grassy and weedy. Sip adds caramel. Thought this would be better since the ratings...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz undated but recently purchased bottle (from notes).
A hazy yellow straw with a average white head that has OK duration but leaves more than average lacing.
Mild aroma, and not particularly attractive. Earthy, fruity (mainly citrus), overly floral, with some off notes.
T - has more and much better flavor than anticipated. More hop contribution than usual for style, with some malt background, a lemony tint, and a bit of yeasty fruitiness.
M - Thin, semi-watery. Good carbonation.
O - a mix of good and bad. Rather striking contrast between aroma and taste.
