3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear straw yellow, quick small head, no lacing or retention. Aroma is malty. Taste is sweet, subtle earthy bitterness. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, slick mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting note of bread, earth, grass and herbs. Good example of the style. It’s nothing special.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 Oz bottle into a mason jar. Pours macro clear with no lacing or head. No aroma. Mouthfeel is very light. Good amount of carb. Taste is pretty bland. Some sweetness. And that’s about it. I will try anything from Victory. But considering Summer love has very similar measurables to this and is WAY better. I’ll stick with that.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in San Juan as V Lager.
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Grainy malty aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Malty flavor with earthy German hops, a bit grainy. It is just another lager even it is from Victory.

Pours yellow with stark white head. Taste is very Bready and crisp. Pretty good would probably be better on a hot day.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours straw yellow with a thin white head with a little lacing. Aroma is of bready biscuit malts, sweet malts, light grassy hops, and some light fruits. taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a light body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, semi dry, medium-short finish. Overall, a sub par beer that is however good for the style and would be a nice lawnmower beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle into a Chimay goblet.
A: Pours a gorgeous straw color. The head isn’t much, though - not even a finger high (white shade), and retention isn’t any better (read: poor). No real lacing is left behind, either. But the body is beautiful enough to make me overlook its crappy head.
S: Honestly, I don’t get much. Maybe a hint of bready malts, and a (admittedly decent otherwise) noble hop profile. At least what’s there is quite nice - it would be a good aroma if it were stronger. As it warms up, it seems to become a little bolder.
T: There are some nice noble hops right from the start. They’re mild, but they work really well. The finish is lightly sweet. To me, this beer is more conducive to drinking than analyzing - it doesn’t have much in the way of standout qualities or bold flavors, but by gawd, it just works extremely well.
M: Quite dry and crisp. Well carbonated, too. Maybe a hair overcarbonated, but that’s a trifle. This goes down more than easily enough.
O: The aroma may not have been up to snuff, but the actual taste of the beer was. And that’s all I really care about. There’s nothing like a good lager in the right mood, and this hit that ’right mood’ extremely well.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz bottle....yellow/straw w/ a small off white head....
-smells like a lager’
-up front sour matiness
-nothing to it
-let me rephrase...nothing great to it
-I don’t think I’m a lager fan ...this beer was a reminder of that
-its not the worst lager I’ve ever had...but wouldn’t buy again (unless they change the recipe)
-I had to drink it quickly because I didn’t care for the aftertaste of sour
-rating from 2-9-2010
