COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as All Malt Lager (Helles) & V Lager

There was a time when all beer tasted this good. Back when immigrant Brewmasters turned fresh malts and hops into liquid gold. Before big business lessened our precious beer with corn and rice. Having trained in Germany, we thirst for better beer. So, we brew better beer like this crisp, golden, helles-style lager. Brewed with patience from quality German malts and hops, it is a Victory for Your Taste!

Malt: Imported 2 row German malts

Hops: Whole flower German hops

Clear and bright gold with rising, champagne-like bubbles. Crisp up front; sweet, soft and chewy in the finish. Sugary grains, cereal and a pinch of creamed corn. Gentle notes of fruit, such as pear and white grapes. Mild, flowery bitterness seemed to round things out pretty well. Pleasant beer.

I sure hope this is the right one. It’s called Victory Lager, nothing else. Victory brewing obviously. The label is different, so I’m skeptical. Anyway... Bottle: Best by November 9, 2004. Great. Aroma is fairly offensive, smells expired. Pours extremely pale body with little head - another sign of expiring. Flavor is basic and not enjoyable. A newer bottle would have rendered higher scores. Oh well.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2005
06.23.05 12oz bottle Super pale yellow with thin white head. Looks like Bud Light with just as much carbonation. Aromas are cookie dough and corn flakes, hints of almond and baby vomit. Very, very, very bland beer reminds only of soggy breakfast cereal. Nothing on finish to clean it up save a few vagrant bubbles. Blech.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Bottle; variety of victory’s sampler case. Full bodied, aromatic, malty lager in classic german style. Not a fan of this style - rather a pilsener or pale ale for everyday drinking.

Sammy (11060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
mediocre malty lager. But of head, something people watching a hockey game would down without thinking, or tasting. Malty, significant carbonation.

argo0 (13069) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2005
(12oz bottle, best by 8/7/05) Clear straw body topped by medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is medium sweet, grassy, some bread. Taste is medium sweet, bread, grassy, some apple, light corn. Minimal bitterness. Light body. A lawnmower beer, so I guess I should consider it in such terms, but this falls way short of what Victory is capable of.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Bottle: light golden in color with a malty/grassy aroma. For the type its a very decent brew - however the type is one which is not known for complexity or character. One of the better lawn mower beers. Victory has so many excellent beers this one just pales in comparison - pun intended.

Pours a nice golden yellow with a large white head. Has a nice malty straw flavor with a wonderful corn aroma. Over all one of the best lagers ive ever drank

Pours clear straw and very light. Aroma is basic with a very slight undertone of mushrooms. Taste is rather generic. You can taste a bit of malt but overall this beer is not up to par with the other victory beers. There is nothing unique here which is what makes the other beers stand out.

LutzBrau (43) - iowa city, Iowa, USA - MAY 13, 2005
A good, clean, & crisp lager. The aroma is citrusy, strong malt, and slightly doughy sweet. Taste is rather boring, little hops feel besides the dry finish. Its just Aight.
