2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
mediocre malty lager. But of head, something people watching a hockey game would down without thinking, or tasting. Malty, significant carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose-very earthy, like fresh shucked corn. Kinda wet and moldy smelling. Taste-very fresh-hay, straw, clay, light dry spices, light clove and a “corny” taste. Sweet lingering finish. Very crisp, clean, and enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
pour is lemon yellow that is see through. white light head that rings quickly. aroma is like a toned down grolsch, lumpy will dig this aroma i bet. notes of acorns and hay in here also. flavor is clean refreshing light sweetness with a touch of bitter on the backside. kind of wheaty tasting somehow. a nice lawnmower beer.i can appreciate this one even though it isn’t my style at the moment.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright gold, thin head. Nose lightly grassy, some floral character. Nice taste here, crisp and a bit citric, good hoppy bite, finishes with a nice balance of sweet malts. Good stuff.
