3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Victory. Sparkling straw with little to no head formation. Nose is muted honey and pineapple juice. Taste is quite nice- biscuity, decently hoppy with mouth watering saltwater and quenching body. Feels at some times like an upgraded malt liquor with sugar and bitter tinniness but far less metallic approaching zero. Still very sweet lagerish all around but unmistakeable Victory malt profile and attenuation. Webby lacing along the glass.

Gold color, with hopcit and some fruit in the aroma. Tastes malty, withy some hopcit and honey in the finish. This one should keep the chicks happy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at CAH. Pours a very light golden clear and a thin white head. Aroma is a touch of corn and vegetal, crackery and cereal notes, but still has some dough and fresh malt, very light hops. Flavor is more corn, dms, slight metallic and reminds me of a bad bud, with a bit of a twang in the end. When you make beers like the v-lager helles, there is no need to make something like this. Ugh.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2010 Draft at PJ Whelihan’s. This is one of the best pale lagers that I have had. Great taste - poured a bod somewhere between michelobe ultra and yuengling....so yellow. Nice sweet aroma, would def try this brew again. solid alc % as well

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught: Smelled malty as well as of corn and some sweet fruit (like apple). Also smelled of a bit of grassy hops and yeast. Poured golden color with large, dense white head. Very nice lacing. Clear. Slightly sweet and bitter corn flavor. Malty, with a small hop presence mainly in the finish. Light to medium body. Kind of thin and watery. Average carbonation. Short finish. Overall, it’s a classy beer for your average light beer drinker. Not something I would usually drink, but good for a game of quarters.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear pale gold with a frothy white head. Pale malts, a little corn, and some crackery malt on the nose. Maybe not exciting, but better than most Pale Lagers. Light, clean and refreshing flavor, you can tell there’s corn in there, but it’s a positive in here actually. Light bodied, fizzy prickly carbonation, unusually clean finish for a Pale Lager. Pretty nice, good corn flavor without all the DMS or veggie flavor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught pint at Eulogy in Philadelphia. Pours pale and light golden in the darkness of the bar, with a smallish creamy white head, quick-diminishing....corn, faint grassy hops, a touch of dried lemon and herbs in the simple but tolerably pleasant nose....sweetish and to my taste closer to a Euro-style lager character, fairly light and refreshing while cold though with too little pale malt evident and virtually no hops....sticky and way too sweet when warmed a bit, reminiscent at that point of an above-average malt liquor. I don’t much appreciate even "good" malt liquors, so while I can accept Victory’s intentions in this "recreation", it’s still pretty lousy by their, or any good brewer’s, standards.
