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

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear golden with a small white head that quickly dimnishes to nothing. The aroma is corn malt and honey. Thin mouthfeel with a light malt and honey flavor. A decent lager from victory.

DocLock (9982) - 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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 26, 2009
330 mL. Pours piss yellow with not even a one-finger head that dwindles to nothing. No lacing. Aromas of grass, corn, orange blossom honey. Taste is bubbly upfront with some light honey and cereal grain with a powerful blast of white sugar and then turns slightly acidic and astringent with some barely noticeable balancing dry hops more reminiscent of freshly cut grass. Overall lackluster, bland, nothing to rave about.

jercraigs (9835) - 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!

j12601 (9548) - 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.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
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...

KyotoLefty (9303) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pale golden and slightly hazy. Fresh light malt, fresh bread. Very clean with only a hint of floral hops. Palate is a bit thin and watery, but the beer isn’t bad. I’ll take a Prima Pils over this any day though.

3fourths (9136) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle best by July 2015. Clear gold with no head. Simple aroma of honey-ish malt and yeast that smells like vitamins and cosmetics, and DMS shows as corn and concrete, more so in the mouth than the nose. Light bodied, moderately sweet with low bitterness and low acidity. Syrupy and flabby approach, coarse starchy finish, low carbonation. All around terrible lager, smells foul and looks bad.

Bottle shared. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have bready and biscuity malt, mild floral notes, straw, pretty basic and bland, I would not revisit this.
