Appearance: hay colored, slightly hazy, with a short, fizzy vanishing white head. Aroma: grass, hay, light and sweet grains, a hint of lemon. Taste: a little bread, some grass, and a hint of floral hops. Finish: short, soft, and clean. Notes: A perfectly acceptable lager, but perfectly inconspicuous as well. I love a good lager, but there just wasn’t a lot to this one. It was about a month past the expiration date, so maybe I’ll try it again at some point.

Honey and pilsner malt aroma. Bitter bite, some grassiness. White pepper finish. Tasty enough for a lager, but still a bit boring.

You’re pretty much guarenteed that if it is a beer from Victory Brewing in Pennsy, then what’s inside will at least be true-to-style and a decent effort. This lager pours a nice, deep yellow, with a very good head on it that stays to the bottom of the glass. Nice carbonation; not too much, not too little. Nice grass-like hop nose, with some malty-bread-like aromas peeping through. Excellent baked bread flavor, with some good sourish yeasty notes. The hops are very well done, being there, but combining in harmony with the malt, not overpowering it. This is one of my favorite American craft brewed beers... with one caveat! Careful not to pick up a batch that is past it’s "best by" date. I don’t know if this is the carrier’s fault, but I do seem to find quite a bit of this beer nearing, or past its "best by" date. When fresh, it is an American gem!!

Pale lager with light floral hops. Not much to hate but nothing to like either. Drinks easy but is extremely boring. Decent for a session beer to chug or drink mowing the lawn i suppose.

Very very light pale lager. Light yellow color. There are barely some hops in there. I really can’t taste anything.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Bottle. Pours a stunning gold with a fine-grained, white head. Nose is fruity and toasty with an almost wine-like note. Taste is crisp, clean, roasty, and hoppy with a long, fruity finish. A very, very well-made lager.

Older Bottle. Poured clear golden yellow with small head. Aromas of grain. Taste is similar with light grain. Very enjoyable but would like to try fresh.

Bottle, thanks logan, it pours a nice bright yellow, fair bit of malt comes through in the taste, decent tasting stuff. I would have again

Pours a light straw yellow, about a finger of tight, white lace. Fades fairly quickly. Smells of hay and light malt with a faint hop presence at the tail end. Light sweet malt flavor. Creamy mouth feel. Solid all malt lager, but I have had as good or better for less money (for my taste anyway). Worth trying.
