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

Bottle. Pours clear yellow with short-lived carbonated white head. Somewhat offensive nose of sweetness and corn. Light flavors of bready malts, apples, and more and more corn as it warms up. Tastes like cheap German beer, especially disappointing considering Victory’s track record.

Clear piss color. Bland....no flavor like Richard Prior without the humor. I am sorely disappointed with Victory for this beer.

Bottle pour with a half a finger head. This tastes every bit as good as the imported Dortmunder/Helles I’ve had. Great taste, will buy again.

Appearance is a slightly hazy deep yellow with a decent sized white head that goes quick. A bit of lacing remains throughout the life of the brew. Smells of malt and earthy hops with notes of spice and a few other things. This tastes of a wheat/grainy malt flavor with a slight sweetness. There is a small hop taste in there as well but I can’t detect much else. Mouthfeel is decent with good carbonation. This is a beer that would be good to give to someone who is used to macros to try and convert them. A fairly tasty lager that I would probably get again.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Just a poor beer, in my humble opinion. Not much more flavor that a Bud. A bit watery, weak hoppiness for a lager, and the musty aroma of beers that I used to drink in high school. I’d pass on this one if given another opportunity to have one.

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2006
On tap at Barley’s in Asheville. Very little white head with a pale golden body. Aroma was mild and of noble German hops. Flavor was a little weak, but not offensive.

Pours yellow with stark white head. Taste is very Bready and crisp. Pretty good would probably be better on a hot day.
