4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden yellow with a very bubbly white head which fades quickly. Aroma is slightly grassy, very subtle. Flavor has some strong hops up front followed by very slight malt and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Recognizable as a blonde, but with much more character than anything I’ve had in that category. I was pleasantly surprised by this and would definitely have it again. Perfect beer for the summer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gold with an inch of white head. Aroma of hay, flowers, a little peach and lemon, spices. Lightish bodied, high carbonation is a bit much for me. Restrained fruit and hay, dry and bitter finish with lingering floral and peppery notes. A little too austere and too bubbly, but a good, sharpening beer..

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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
