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

Not my idea of a lager at all...pale yellow color with white head, aroma of hops and some sweetness, possibly lemon. Very crisp body, but much more bitter than any other lager I have ever had. Goes down easy, bud not what I was looking for from this particular beer, from this particular brewer.

Pailhead (6141) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma is slight Euro-lager sweetness with some grassiness and a touch of hops. Pours a pale straw yellow with a small white head that fades to a ring in no time. Sweet Euro-lager flavor from start to finish. A hint of some apple and only the slightest hing of hops in the finish. I really don’t understand how this gets a score above a 3. Very little difference from a mediocre European sweet pale lager.

I remembered having a great Victory lager on tap in the past, and when I saw a case of this on sale, I bought it. I later noticed the bottles were past their "freshness date," but out of a mixture of stubborness and lazyness, I stuck it out. These beers have disappointed; there just isn’t much to them. Pours a very light, clear gold color with a white head so thin it’s barely noticeable. The aroma is mostly of grainy hops, not much malt. The carbonation was average, and the beer was thin with a light, almost empty, mouthfeel. The taste was mostly bitter with a slight sour component. Sure, this beer is not bad, but it loses points for being so boring and because I expected much better.

Bottle. Sweet corn/barley malt aroma. Light yellow with small head but moderate effervescence. Initially sweet corn malt flavor with a sour, light hops finish. Moderate carbonation. Pretty much par for the style.

This beer was sampled at Beerworks Charleston, SC. Pours a amber color with almost no head more of a film of foam. This beer had no aroma to speak of maybe a slight sweet corn smell. Taste was definatley sweeter than expected, some nutty flavors comming out that were actually not too bad with a touch of wheat/corn sweetness that I thought took away from it. Hops are present but barely so. I have to say the best thing about this beer was the hot bartender that served it to me.

Very impressive to achieve a beer like this, although I personally did not care for the malt taste, and the heavy carbonation.

hopdog (10472) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Poured a light yellow and an averaged sized head. Aromas of musty, yeast and wet grass. Light and sweet tasting. Too light for my tastes. I like Victory beers a lot, but this is on the bottom of my list.

Lacking on flavor, a very basic beer that is drinkable but uninteresting. Pale in color, flavor and aroma similar to an American macrobrew, but with a notably better quality. That’s not a high compliment in light of the quality of Victory’s other beers. It gets packaged in the "variety of victorys" case and is typically the last of the four beers types in that case to be drank.

Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Has hints corn, wheat, and malt. Other than that has no taste. Finishes like a dirty glass of water.
