Bottle poured clear gold. Tasted like what I was told to expect: a nice, clean, drinkable lager. I’m a PA native, and prefer a regional brew to the big macros, so it gets it done for me.

Clear golden lager with thin white head with moderate carbonation. Very subtle sweetness (honey) with minimal hops. All in all a very plain lager.

Bottle,poured light gold with small head and nice carbonation. Light malty flavor. Nothing special, but very refreshing. A good beer from a great brewery.

I really liked this beer. Very light, pours a nice golden color. Has a nice clean hoppy aftertaste. Goes down very smoothly.

I actively avoid Victory’s beers because they seem obsessed with cramming ludicrous amounts of hops into every single thing that they can. And I hate hops like I hate the devil. Anyway! I can’t comment on appearance or head, as I was at a comrade’s house and did not have a glass, but the flavor was a lot better than I expected. Light, clean, a little nutty, maybe? There’s a hint of some flavor I can’t put my finger on, but I’m thinking nuts. Anyway. All around solid, tasty, simple beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Nice offering from Victory as one would expect. Simple yet tasty and a nice drinking lager. --you've been Dubbed.

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!!

Nice light straw appearance. Nose of fresh cut grass. Initial taste of malt. Sweet for just a second then sweetness relaced with biscuity malts. Fairly true to style but perhaps a tad watery.

Pours a nice gold color that’s dark. Too much "flavor" of hops but that’s what Victory is known for. Finish is slightly bitter.

Shared a 12 oz bottle with Willblake. Poured a nice clear light yellow with little white head. Very strong doughy aroma. Light bodied, beer is excellent if bought when freshly bottled
