Keg at the Rake. Light apricot and peach. Not so exciting. Light graininess. Little bit sweet.

Pours clear blond with low-medium white head. Aroma is of citrus, hay, sugar, some flowers. Taste is of grain, citrus, sugar, bitterness. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Good. Straight-forward. No major flaw.

Slightly hazy amber with little carbonation. Mild citrus on the nose, and some sweet fruit on the palate. Easy drinking and decent flavors.

Bottle. Nice stuff. Reminds me of a hoppy pils or kolsch -- drinks very clean and easy. Solid hop presence both on the nose and taste. Dry, pleasantly bitter and overall very enjoyable.

Wow, this beer totally caught me off guard. It has a medium thick body with a malty sweet flavor. Finish is sweet, only mildly hoppy. It’s silky. It’s good but I wouldn’t call it crips. It kind of lingers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
DATE REVIEWED: August 1, 2014... GLASSWARE: pint... OCCASION: finding a new favorite show in Drunk History at State College...APPEARANCE: pale, almost wan, weak yellow car body; pillowy white, single-finger head that thins rather quickly... AROMA: sharp banana; damp yeasts with some funk--a wet blanket? noticeably light malt scents--not very alluring ... PALATE: medium-bodied; oily and palpably gritty; smooths out over the course of the glass draining; refreshing overall ... TASTE: light, spritzy lemon; a bit doughy for an ale; the funk in the aroma bleeds into the taste--odd dish detergent lingers... OVERALL: an oddly spotty offering from Victory--sharp and slightly abrasive with the overall experience rounding out the profile with some acceptance, but a mix of scents and tastes that do not seem to coexist peacefully... light enough to fit the season, but not large enough to occupy attention or demand a revisit....

Bottle at The Euston Tap. No notes, from memory. Clear blonde, white head. Floral hops, followed by some decent bitterness in the finish. Light, fizzy refreshing and very enjoyable.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Aromas are definitely vibrant and grassy. Refreshing at first, heavy on the tounge, then Bitter. I’m not abig hops person, not a fan.

Bottle (12 oz). Enjoy by 12 oct 2014. Courtesy of Minderbinder, thanks! Almost clear bright straw/golden with a medium easy to revive white head and some lacing. Aroma is quite floral with earthy notes, herbal hops and cereals. Taste is also floral and herbal forward along cereals, earthy/mineral notes and light citrus. Light to medium body, but never watery. Good carbonation. Crisp. Clean. Dry finish. Floral aftertaste. Super quenching and sessionnable. It feels like a 4% abv beer. Quite tasty too. Well executed!
