This was a really refreshing beer. The aroma was a little bready and the taste was clean and smooth. Worth a try and a great American example of the style.

(Best by Jul/30/04) The nose is very spicy almost like black pepper. The body is light and refreshing with a good bready character. The hops aptly balance out the sweetness from the malt. The finish is clean and hoppy. I feel that the finish is a little too spicy. The beer would be better if the brewers cutback on the hops. Otherwise, a good clean lager.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Spicy, herbal hop notes under crisp biscuity pils malt...A dry ending is cajoled by tepid citrus fruit...A beautifully rounded body is lean enough to remain very drinkable, yet can still create satiety...

Wonderful bready aroma. Taste is very clean, sweet malt. I think it needs slightly more hops though. But this is still a very smooth, enjoyable beer. Much thanks to Springlicker for this one.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Bottled, at some nameless restaurant in suburban Philadelphia. "Say whatcha got there bud?" "Well I got two lagers, one’s a pissy macro and the other is from a fine micro brewer." "Well, how can you tell bud?" "’Cause this one says ’Victory’ on it, and it’s a ’helles’, man." "Hmm, they both taste about the same to me, sweetish, slightly malty, overcarbonated, just a little bit of hops." "But surely the Victory is much, much better made...and it’s not an evil macro, by gum!" "Yeah, I guess you’re right, send me 12 cases....sucker!"

Mild aroma of toasty, biscuity malt, yeast and lemons. Dark golden-brown with decent white head that recedes to cover. Full and malty but fairly simple. Slight sourness. Some buttery dacetyl. Short flavour profile. Oily mouthfeel. I really was hoping to get more out of this one as I generally enjoy Victory beers. Sampled with MartinT and Rastacouere. Bottle.

Apperance proposes a dark golden yellow hue with sunset red hints, kind of hazy. Aroma contains nice cookie maltiness, a bit toasty as well, light noble hops and mostly bready. I must say I’m not getting that much though. In mouth, its presence is very mild without too much going on and even a feeling approaching metal in the finish. Body is rather creamy and could use a bit more carbonation I believe. This is miles away from prima pils unfortunately and I really wanted to enjoy it as I felt it was a great day for an helles.

EKGoldings (556) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Light golden color with no head. Smell is sweet malt and very very light hop. Tastes good but it is watery on the finish. Not a bad light lager but I was hoping for more. I think they need to up the IBUs to the PU range and then this will be a gret beer. Missing the bitterness but the malt is there.

Malty and grassy, medium golden bodied, this could actually be better than their original "All-Malt". Biscuity malts, hops are like fresh mown grass and mesculin greens. Extremely enjoyable. (bought a case in Pittsburgh - the first bottle tasted "off" but that could be a result of a bad mix from a previous beer)

Golden color, biscuit grassy aroma. Very smooth drinkin', full taste with a bit of drying hops at the finish.
