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

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2008 When someone states malt is buttery and crackery - start here! Add a crisp, slightly earthy, slightly flowery and slightly mettalic hop presence to a subtly cloudy body and you have an incredible beer - not quite as sweet as the old Victory Dort, but to my mind this is crackerjack, drink in 15 seconds, hop tingly perfection. Among the best in style. Only touches of sweetness. Thanks Britt!!!!

This is a nice light lager that I enjoy having on a nice spring day. It is not overly complex, but has a nice single layer flavor to it that is very refreshing. It is nice easy drinking.

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!!

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2005 (previous rating in this slot was mistakenly for the Dortmunder) New Rating 6/11/2005) What a perfectly wonderful beer. I could drink gallons of this stuff, especially in hot weather. Clear straw with lively columns of bibbles that cascade to the surface forming a nice lastig white head. The aroma just screams lager, unsalted saltines with a wisp of noble hops. The flavor is even more crackery. Extremely well-balanced and refeshing. Light crisp body, pure malt exhuberance washing down to my gullet. It is a shame that more folks can not appreciate this wonderful beer, or even this style for that matter!

This was a really refreshing beer. The aroma was a little bready and the taste was clean and smooth. Worth a try and a great American example of the style.

Bright gold, thin head. Nose lightly grassy, some floral character. Nice taste here, crisp and a bit citric, good hoppy bite, finishes with a nice balance of sweet malts. Good stuff.
