4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best by sept 26th 2013.
A- Pours out a very clear golden lager color, deeper-gold with lots and lots of bubbles in a somewhat frothy, sticky head.
S - Wow this is one of the most grapefruit forward beers I've ever had. I mean literally smells like fresh grapefruit when you cut it in half and are about to eat it. Also smelling some grassy hops as well as some bready malts.
T- Taste is rather complex mix of citrus grapefruit and some grassy herbal hops. Also some sweet malt in there, very lager like.
P- The pallet is rather full but not overly rich making this pretty sessionalable and drinkable on a hot day. Bubbly, crisp and refreshing.
O-Overall I'm not unfamiliar with this beer nor any of victories offerings. I had this beer last summer yet this year's version seems a little better, tweaked to be a little more hoppy. I'll definitely be buying much more this stuff as the weather warms up. What I like about it is it isn't hollowed out in the middle like a lot of newer, hoppy sessionable summer beers which are becoming fashionable.

Draft at Growler Guys: Yellow in color with a small white head. Mild aroma is sweet, a little malty and some faint floral hops. Tastes malty, grain, and a little herbal. More earthy than sweet. Refreshing.

pours into a yellow body with a crisp white head, the nose isn’t strong although i did detect a fresh floral aroma. taste is a fresh one that has hints of floral but settles on a caramel finish. a pleasant ale.

Earthy must. Bright citrus. Pale cloudy light yellow with a bright white head that fizzes away pretty quickly leaving a hint of foam on the side of the glass. Citrusy. Yeasty. Bright with a clean finish. A little bite at the end. Not bad. Decent summer beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
None of the pilsner aroma or taste. None of the radler lemonaid. Too muddled in taste and styles to please me!
