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

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.

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.

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.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2005
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.

Rballs01 (282) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2005
Pours a nice light gold. Small head that quickly disappears. The flavor is somewhat buttery. Nice bite from the hops but not much malt, which is strange b/c of the name, "All Malt Lager". ?? Overall, a nice easy-drinking beer. Good for the weather to come.

This is a basic lager with a strong malt flavor. Not a bad beer just not one of my particular favorites.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 26, 2005
On tap at Victory. Fine for a lager. Although, I don’t see much appeal in any beer that proclaims itself "All-Malt." Boring by definition and they get what they’re going for.

I am not a lager lover, but I have been impressed with all of Victory’s 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.

guzzler67 (1655) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2005
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.
