3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a clear light golden color, small frothy head, fast fading head leaves rings and spotty lacing.
The smell has mainly just malts, not much else.
The taste is sweet through the malts.
The palate is about a light to medium on the body, sessionable, sweet aftertaste and sweet and watery finish.
Overall, its an easy drinking Munich Helles, decent for the style, good for me and great with food.

Nicely done helles. Crisp, clear and light. Malt at the forefront in both taste and aroma. Slick mouthfeel and bread, grains for a short finish. Good sunny day beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
EBD 3/4/14. Clear light golden pour with a nice head and normal lacing. Laid back nose of what strikes me as Hallertau hops, very slight. Light medium body with light carbonation. This a nice Helles that is to style. The taste is laid back, as is the nose, and light with the expected effervescence. A slight sweetness coupled with a bit of hop flavor and bitterness constitutes the flavor profile. Crisp and clean finish with a touch of lingering bitterness.

Bottle. Clear. Pale straw color. Bits of sediment visible. Sweet malty aroma. Licorice, floral, starch. Taste is licorice, bubblegum, wheat. Palate is smooth, refreshing, long astringent finish. Good brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale blonde with decent train of upward carbonation feeding a ring of head. Surprisingly malty nose for such a pale looking lager. A lovely fresh grainyness with heaping dose of Munich malt and melanoidins. Similarly, the flavor is malty with a strong melanoidin/malt ball component, but altogether crisp, clean and quaffable. To sum up--more than meets the eye.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle into pint glass, hazy straw-golden color with white head. Aroma of malt sweetness, corn and slight grassy/hay hop note. Taste is malt sweetness balance with light grassy/hay hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, with clean finish. More depth then the typical macro, even Yuengling.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden pour. Small white head. Strong floral aroma. Mild fruity flavor (good fruity - not bad fruity). Clean crisp finish. Not grainy. Pulled this out of a singles cooler strictly based on the strong reputation of Victory. No expectations of a wow factor from a lager, but this was very solid for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Lots of malt. Dark malt, some spice, molasses, and more malt. A medium bodied brew. Pretty quick in duration. Straight and to the point but it is well done.

Draught at barcade. Very light and clear no head or lace. Aroma is light crisp lemony, dry grass, biscuit sweetness. Flavor is very similar. Slight metallic end. Feel is watery, zingy, refreshing. Very drinkable and nice for what it is. Always happy to have a decent classic lager option.
