(Bottle) Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of corn and sweet malt. Thin and not much flavor.

06.23.05 12oz bottle Super pale yellow with thin white head. Looks like Bud Light with just as much carbonation. Aromas are cookie dough and corn flakes, hints of almond and baby vomit. Very, very, very bland beer reminds only of soggy breakfast cereal. Nothing on finish to clean it up save a few vagrant bubbles. Blech.

For a summer brew, I’ll take it. But for a craft microlager, I’m a bit let down. It’s a typical light American macro with a different label. Pours straw into the glass with a decently creamy head. Aromas of biscuits.... if you really search for it. The flavors are extremely weak, with almost no malt contingency and a weak hop offering. Mouthfeel is thin and a tad watery. It feels like a light beer, so that does account for some of it. Very forgettable. I should have opted for another sampler when in PA.

Well, it seems like one of my favorite breweries has started bottling Pabst Blue Ribbon under the name of "V Lager." I am not pleased. It’s pee-yellow with a whitish head and super-thin aftertaste. Fortunately I didn’t pay for this swill.

Pours a pale gold with a snow-white and frothy head. some fine lacing. Smells sweet, alot like honey. Taste is very sweet, hardly any hop flavor at all. Lots of honey flavor in this. Pale sweet malt, hnts of caramel. Mouth is a bit cloying quite frankly. Sticky mouth and finish. The honey-like flavors are just too much. Not a good Helles IMO.

Pretty flavorless, glad I bought a variety case, can see why it is the most widely produced local beer, wanted to like but would compare to a slightly better Coors Light:(

Came in the variety pack which is great, but nothing special. Not much malt, butter, or flavor other than carbonic acid. Better than Miller Light but not much.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Pale yellow, thin foamy white head. Aroma of grain, apple, honey and sweet corn. Taste is sweet fruit along with grain. Watery texture, thin body, fizzy carbonation. Not very good.

Victory V Lager pours a light yellow with a thin head. The aroma is a fresh bready maltiness. The brew is a bit sweet, malty. The beer is OK, but I am more of a fan of Victory ales.
