At Rockwells. This should be the beer that you give to lager folks to introduce them to ale. Very lager like in the lightness and crispness but still with a bunch of flavor for the style. Serving: Tap

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin, white head. Herbaceous aromas of basil and grass. Sweet up front with a sharp hop finish. Really well-balanced. Finishes quickly. This beer is made for a warm summer day. Well done, Victory!

Pours a clear golden color with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, and flowery hops. Flavor of grassy hops, biscuits, and light yeast. Very easy to drink, will have to get a six pack of this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale gold pour with a 1 finger, spotty white head. Aroma is cereal, tart tree fruit and bready yeast. Flavor is very cereal forward, with some fruity, spicy and citrus notes coming in and a little bitter, tart peach (like the flesh that comes from on the pit) toward the end. Light body with a medium strength, blanketing carbonation and dry feel throughout. Not bad at all. Seems to be one of the better Golden Ales I have had.

Yay, good beer! I have been looking forward to trying this beer for a while on customer recommendation. Nice start with a great pour with almost no head. The smell is very flowery with some citrus. The color is golden and pretty clear. I really love the hoppy wheat flavor. There is just a touch of lemon in there, but not enough to be a shandy. The aftertaste is definitely lemony, but not overpowering. I would recommend Southern Tier Hop Sun to those who like this beer.

Bottle into a ale glass. Pour is a honey orange with nice lace head. Aroma is hop, crisp malt and citrus. Taste is bitter sweet malt with a nice hop wash and citrus feel. Finish is a great warm bitter. A very good ale, Victory has another hit here, canít wait to go there have it fresh from the tap.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light yellow pour with a slight haze. Puffy white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of pale malt and bready yeast, with just the slightest hint of hops. Taste brings in more flavors of fresh bread, grassy hops, and yeast. Has an almost wheaty texture, which is interesting. Finish is fairly dry and somewhat herbal. Definitely refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very nice pale color. The nose has some hops with citrusy hints. The flavor is very clean and not boring like a lot of beers of this style, but instead has some good citrusy hop notes. I could drink a thousand of this refreshing, satisfying beer while mowing my yard, if my yard were more than the half-acre it is. Iíll start mowing slower I guess.

Yellow golden color out of the bottle with a small white head. Nice floral hoppy nose with some orange citrus notes. Lots of biscuit and dough malt flavors with orange peel and red grapefruit juice hop flavors. Well balanced and flavorful beer.
