I had this on tap at Isacc Newtowns in Newtown Pa. It’s a good lager. I’d pick this over Yuengling anyday, for a lager, it’s got a good flavor, nice color and good smell.

Max’s. Sweet, slightly corny nose, with some nice herbal and grassy hops. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, grassy, light lemon, some hay. Medium light body is soft with gentle carbonation. Excellent adjunct lager.

plenty of small bubbles rise through the transparent gold to a thin white small bubbled head laces well. Tea and grain nose, very plain with light lemon, fresh cut grass with warmth. Well-attenuated flavor, soft doughy grain with husk hints, more grass, all of it very light, even muted by the effervescent body. Lightly sweet by victory standards, and though "plain", still well crafted.

On tap at brewpub. Pours bubbly pale gold with white head. Nice lacing. Caramel, fruity, musty basement, floral, light citrus. Medium sweetness and lightly bitter. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Much better than I expected it to be.

On tap, the Dirty Truth, Northampton, MA, August 7th and 8th. Wow - I love this stuff. I got a lot of grassiness and no real corn adjunct sweetness a la a traditional lager like PBR. None at all. Light gold in color with a great frothy head, this was grassy and bitter and absolutely lovely. It took me a bunch of back and forths with Victory to see what this was - named "Victory Reserve Lager" on the DT’s beer board. A pint of this beer and a few smaller treats convinced me to get my first piercing at Lucky’s parlor right next door, and that is one hell of a great tattooing and piercing establishment.

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

Pours a nice slightly cloudy gold with a decent bubbly white head. Very clean, crisp, corny/cereal aroma. Clean taste with no flaws. Crisp, dry finish. Easy drinking - a fantastic conversion brew.

Pure golden color, no hazy or cloudiness, looked almost like a Bud or Coors, but didn’t taste like it, very smooth & drinkable, great session beer, nothing like the big three lagers, full-bodied, well-balanced, well-done lager

This is an awesome beer, I would drink it all summer if it were avaliable. aroma is nicely balanced with some hops poking out, and some bready malt. flavor is dry, slightly hoppy, and very crisp and refreshing. if only all pale lagers were like this! reminicent of stegmaier gold medal accept with more hops. lean mouthfeel, easy drinking, tasty and refreshing. just a little less bitter than a bitburger. Vastly underated.
