jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2006
Pale yellow, small white head. Muted sweet grainy aroma. Flavr is fairly sweet and malty with a mild bitterness just enough to keep it balanced and interesting. Average palate. Quaffable but pretty dull/mainstream for victory. Thanks Lou18!

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Pours dark gold/straw. Aroma of malt, lemon, slight honey, and wheat. Tastes malty, with a crisp citrus, hop finish.

shrubber85 (7938) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle. Sweet corn/barley malt aroma. Light yellow with small head but moderate effervescence. Initially sweet corn malt flavor with a sour, light hops finish. Moderate carbonation. Pretty much par for the style.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear, rather pale straw golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up soft sourdough bread and earthy notes with dry, spicy accents of white pepper and dried hibiscus.. very pleasant and well-balanced. The flavor found bready and other pale malts at the core, with just a faint hint of cardboard.. prickly carbonation and dry earthy character surrounded.. lemony sourness over bread on the finish. Lighter-bodied with too much tight, sharp carbonation on the palate.. somewhat stale feeling as it warmed up.. overall a solid drinker.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Bottle, enjoy by 11/9/04: Pours a clear pale yellow golden with a thin covering of white head. Aroma of mild pale malt and a faint noble hoppiness. Body starts with a faint sweetness, some grassy hoppy notes and a smooth, mildly bitter finish. Very refreshing and drinkable and little signs of oxidation even after a year. Thanks IMtheOptimator!

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle back at Paul’s place after the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a hazed yellow with a medium sized white head. Light grain, a little citrus. Crisp and sweet grain. Soft wheat. Quite crisp. Sweet, crisp, and grainy on the finish.

KyotoLefty (6695) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2014
Tap at Pony Bar. Medium gold color with lace. Nice malty, biscuit nose. Light bitterness, nice lemony, floral hops at first, but in the end, rather plain.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle 355ml
Aroma : traditional straight golden malt aroma, grainy lager with light scent of hop.6+
Appearance: great shade of gold with medium light white top.3-
Flavour and Palate: medium bodied. First sip tells all, perfectly prepared malt work. Its roundness, just enough carbonation inside with touch of hop. If not the label I would never believed this was brewed in USA. Perfectly balanced, softer than German counterparts, still crisper than Czech ones and fuller and more malt sided than most Polish micros. This is truly benchmark brew as for golden pale lager.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2004
Bottle pours light straw with a quickly diminishing fizzy head.   Light carbonation, virtually no lacing.   Aroma is of light malts and hay.   Taste is much the same but quite sweet.   Crisp and clean, but not as malty as I would have hoped.   A bit thin, but still good.   Thanks goes out to Pabobcat for the trade!

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2011
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a clear, very pale yellow-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma of corn, grain, biscuity malt and very light hops, too light in fact. Only slightly watery flavour is grainy and slightly sweet along with corn, biscuity malt and light hops. Very mild bitter finish. Average bodied. I’m not a big fan of Lagers but I’ve definitely had much better ones then this, this is average at best -- in short: Boring.
