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

On tap at Victory. Fine for a lager. Although, I donít see much appeal in any beer that proclaims itself "All-Malt." Boring by definition and they get what theyíre going for.

I am not a lager lover, but I have been impressed with all of Victoryís offerings. So this one was a pleasant surprise. There is a sweetness that is not too strong, and definitely pushes the malt on you. Still thin, but not so much as other lagers that I have been disappointed in. Not bad, but I would recommend other Victory beers above this one.

Clear, pale yellow appearance with a small white head. Moderately sweet, bready aroma. Refreshing, uncomplicated thirst quencher but lacks depth of flavor. Light bodied and well carbonated, with a clean, short lived finish.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 My second rating of this beer is better than the first which was old beer. Good looking lager with a QD head. Nice fullness of palate for a lager with malt sweetness and a mild hopping. Grassy hop flavor is more dominant than is the malt. A good beer for style but not my favorite.

A decent looker and easy drinker. Mild with maybe a touch of wheat character along with the "all-malt" maltiness. Hopping is not prominent.

(Bottle) Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of corn and sweet malt. Thin and not much flavor.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2005 The graphic depicted here doesnít match the label on the beer I had (Victory Lager "V") but the Victory website seems to confirm that it is the same beer - must have updated their label. Crystal clean bright gold pour with a medium white head and fair lacing. Peasant aroma of hay and malt. Crisp and refreshing malt flavor with a very subtle and mellow hop finish but no bitterness or bite whatsoever. I know this isnít a very highly rated beer but every now and then, I have to step back and say "this just tastes great" and leave it at that. Thatís where Iím leaving this one.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2004
A better than average beer, but the "fallout" at the end of each sip prevents this from being a good beer. Thanks to pjk33 for sending this one my way!

Light golden color with small but lastinghead, smells of wheat oats and honey. Taste clearly of honey, roasted malts and very little hops. Nice amount of carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 This says Victory V Lager on my beer. A light gold color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is earthy with sweet tobacco and green beans. The taste is light and refreshing. Not a whole lot of flavor. The taste has some vegetables, but I am not sure what. It is lighly hopped. A little strong on carbonation. A nice light refresher.
