A: Nice golden body. Huge white head. Solid lacing... A good looking ale.
S: Good amount of piney/grapefruit bitterness from the Simcoe hops in this guy... good malt sweetness in there as well.
T: A pleasant, balance hop-malt interplay is here... lots of piney, floral bitterness, hints of citrus-grapefruit and a solid malt base
M: Medium bodied. Smooth, with the right amount of carbonation. Light bitterness bite on the finish.
O: A great drinker... Good job Victory.
Serving type: on-tap

Tap at Barcade: Golden pour with great clarity and a thin white head. The aroma has some lemon-peel notes, fruity Belgian esters and a crisp grassy character. The flavor has a good amount of crisp citrus/grass hop qualities- with a lemon peel zest and some cracker-like malts in the background. The later flavors offer some spicy yeast phenols/dryness and some Euro-hop bitterness. Highly drinkable, but pretty simple. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Tap at Barcade. Very dull gold pour. Minerally aroma with a hint of Belgian yeast and euro hops. Flavor is sharp and hoppy but very indistinct. Couldn’t at all tell what style they were going for here. Very dull. JoeMcPhee (10137) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2008
Tap at Barcade. Pale golden beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lovely and fresh. A mix of grapefruity citrusy hops along with some nice zesty noble aroma as well. A bit of orange peel over a very crisp pils malt base. A bit of dark herbal character behind the pale pale malts. More APA than Golden Ale, but either way, it’s a very nice simple brew. hopdog (13258) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2008
On tap at Victory. Poured a medium and clear golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of grains with some citrus. Tastes of the same with the citrus being a little stronger than in the aromas.

Nose of floral hops, citrus. Crystal clear gold, large head, vanished as I slowly finished the beer, moderate lacing. Taste is crisp and dry, citrus, with a huge bitter head. An easy beer to enjoy, with a great dry and bitter finish. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2008
