TheBeerGod (5329) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Bottled. Golden blond body with a frothy white head. Nose is grassy and hoppy with a subdued maltiness underneath. The hops seem to be in the forefront with this one. Mild "skunkiness" in the aroma at points as well. Taste is grassy and grainy with more malt flavors coming through. The European hops are making there presence felt in this as well. Nicely balanced, at any rate. Body is lighter than expected and crisp with dry notes. This could be my next "lawnmower" beer. Finish is malty, grassy, some straw notes and a crisp hop end. Refreshing and very drinkable.

Pretty good lager. If anyone has seen my ratings, you will know that I love Victory. This lager is smooth and has a good finish, but lacks any characterisitics that will propel it into greatness.

zach8270 (3580) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Clear copper color with a very thin white head. This sucker is malt the whole way through. Heavy malt in the aroma, heavy and smooth malt in the taste and a crisp malty finish and aftertaste. Very interesting.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Clear yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of malt and a hint of hops. Flavor is mostly malt with a slight hop finish. A little thin, but overall an enjoyable beer.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Pours a hazy yellow with bubbles and a small head. Aroma is malt and more malt. Flavor is thin, and slightly carbonated. Overall a decent beer, just not my personal preference. Thanks goes to SpringsLicker for letting me try this one!

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2004
Bottle: Pours a very light yellow - like pee after a night of drinking - I know, but I don’t have any better description. First off, my bottle claimed I should enjoy this beer by Aug 13, 2004. I purchased and drank it on Sep 25, 2004. Not so good. However, the beer did appear to be intact. Aroma: dust, musty, wet mildew, grass, earth, dirt, pear, sour apple, light hops. Great aroma, though it does smell very much like a lambic....which makes me wonder if my particular bottle may have been infected. Flavor: Iced tea with lemon, light malts, grass, earth, bitter floral taste. Finishes very, very dry with a mint & coriander taste in the mouth. At first I did not like this beer, but the more I drink the better it gets. I will need to drink this again to find out if this bottle was infected.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Poured a light yellow and an averaged sized head. Aromas of musty, yeast and wet grass. Light and sweet tasting. Too light for my tastes. I like Victory beers a lot, but this is on the bottom of my list.

99beerman (29) - Gardners, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Bottle. Poured a pale gold color with a fine white head. Has a lightly hopped, almost grassy bouquet with a little bit of sweet malt in the background. Has a pleasantly full flavor - not thin like so many of the other lagers I’ve had. Very good balance of German hops and malt results in a smooth finish. This is one lager that I will surely revisit!
