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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
