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

(Best by Jul/30/04) The nose is very spicy almost like black pepper. The body is light and refreshing with a good bready character. The hops aptly balance out the sweetness from the malt. The finish is clean and hoppy. I feel that the finish is a little too spicy. The beer would be better if the brewers cutback on the hops. Otherwise, a good clean lager.

Bottle. Yeasty, malty and delicious...this lager is GOOD! I’m not a fan of lagers, however Victory has done it again, with another beer which beats my expectations of it. I love Victory beers, however I can’t find Hop Wallop which I would love to try! (Hint, hint!)

Light golden color with small but lastinghead, smells of wheat oats and honey. Taste clearly of honey, roasted malts and very little hops. Nice amount of carbonation.

pour is lemon yellow that is see through. white light head that rings quickly. aroma is like a toned down grolsch, lumpy will dig this aroma i bet. notes of acorns and hay in here also. flavor is clean refreshing light sweetness with a touch of bitter on the backside. kind of wheaty tasting somehow. a nice lawnmower beer.i can appreciate this one even though it isn’t my style at the moment.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 Bottle. Pours a pale translucent golden with a white fluffy head. Carbonation was extremely effervesent. Nice aroma of european pale malts, lemon, and some biscuit dough Initial flavor is citrus balanced by mildly spicy and herbal hops. Texture in the finish is thin, but that works just fine for this style. For crying out loud, does every damn beer have to be full bodied to get a good rating here. Puh-lease! But the flavor in the finish is big. Strong european lager and herbal hops flavors linger rather nicely. This is a very nice flavorful thirst quencher. I wish I had access to this more often. I like this as much a Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold. I need to do a side by side.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Pours with little head, a beautiful gold. Smells of honey-sweetened grass and malt. Tasty and refreshing, with a moderate palate. One of my favorite beers.

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

Active carbonation, yellow, fizzy. Strong yeast aroma, some white bread and saltine cracker. I agree with jrmac, this beer hits whatever helles pedigree is in my brain. There’s some shortbread, and i get some dry wheat. Finishes fairly clean and completely inoffensive which for me and lagers is a ringing endorsement. I think I found my new favorite lager.

This is a very refreshing beer. It looks great, goes down smooth and has a grainy after taste.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Bottle. Pours a stunning gold with a fine-grained, white head. Nose is fruity and toasty with an almost wine-like note. Taste is crisp, clean, roasty, and hoppy with a long, fruity finish. A very, very well-made lager.
