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

I have no idea why the ratings are so harsh. Maybe it’s a style of beer people don’t quite understand? Honestly, this is a fantastic helles lager, a bit hoppy in the nose, but very easy to drink. There is the grassy meets malty flavor with an easy (almost too easy) finish. Thin, but balanced. Carbonation is spot on for the style and the color is pure yellow macro-brew, with almost no lacing or head. A lager leaning slightly towards a Pils, this is everything I demand in a lawnmower lager.

Pretty good lager. If anyone has seen my ratings, you will know that I love Victory. This lager is smooth and has a good finish, but lacks any characterisitics that will propel it into greatness.

Very good lager. Aroma is of doughy fresh bread, sweet and malty with a slight hint of hops. Initial flavors are malty and sweet with a finish of sugar coated grapefruit. Smooth refreshing lager with a slightly bitter finish. Twice as good on draft.

Draft at Mellow Mushroom’s Victory tasting party. Tight white head atop a beautifully clear yellow beer. Other than that, I found it to be somewhat "basic." Not bad at all; just little character for a Victory brew.

Bottle. Pours a light but bright straw yellow. Very small soapy white head. This one isn’t going to be winning any beauty contests. very aromatic; I could smell it from about two feet away after pouring. Aroma of corn, pears. Wow, this one tastes way better than it looks. Sour apples and...lactose sugar? Maybe. Finishes with lager corn, orchard fruits. Finishes very quickly as well. thicker than most lagers, but still thin enough to be refreshing. Only negative here is the sort of sticky feel in the back of the throat. I can feel this one work its way down. Yea, this is what a lager should be.

Average everything. This was my first Vicyoty beer after hearing so many great things. The beer underwhelmed me. Not a bad beer , just not worth the $28/case. Somwhat sweet, refreshing beer. Mildly bitter.

Small head upon the initial pour into a glass. Light yellow see through color and a light honey smell. Slight honey taste and a nice clean finish. Very drinkable beer and a lighter lager.

A solid golden-clear color beer. Noble hops (saaz?) and malt figure into the aroma. Light mouthfeel, with some texture. Pick up some subtle noble hop character in the taste, close to being a warmish cinnamon without actually being that.

From the bottle. Poured the standard golden color. Taste is slightly bitter upfront, but finishes clean. A very drinkable Dort/Helles.

Light gold pour, light white head, sweet citrus aroma, thin palate, better than the mass-stuff but not great.
