3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden yellow pour with aroma of citrus, biscuit, and pine. Citrus and caramel sweetness with bread malt and some hop bite. Very nice.
5 month old bottle (past best by) > pilsner glass
A: Slightly hazy yellow pour with little head or retention but active carbonation.
S: Light scent of tropical fruits including a sweet candy or bubble gum note as others have stated.
T: Surprisingly tart, bitter and dry to start. A little tropical fruit or peach sweetness and some wood round out the sip.
M: Light, crisp and tingly with slight stickiness.
O: Didn't look or smell particularly good but tastes much better than expected even at this age. Kleg (443) - The Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2018
Clear pale yellow color with a fizzy white head and decent retention. Decent lacing. High carbonation. Hoppy nose. Sweet grainy lager flavor that quickly turns to a floral hops finish. Clean, semi crisp mouthfeel. Quick finish. malrubius (3081) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 10, 2018
Bottle from Brewtopia. Gold with chill haze ring and lace. Spicy grass (but not noble) and light citrus aroma. Medium-light sweetness cracker honey and some apricot with medium grapefruit and pine long bitterness. Light body lively enough. With all the great lagers out there these day, can't find much need for this. Decent. puboflyons (3529) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 6, 2018
From the 12 fl. oz bottle with a best by date of 06 May 2018. Clear golden appearance with a fizzy and fading white head. Pleasant aroma of floral and orange along with corn grits. The body is light to medium but also smooth. The taste highlights the hops more than the corny malts. Overall sweet but there's a nice little punch at the end.

Pours clear topaz with a thick eggshell head. Aroma offers zesty malty, hoppy and pomme/tropical tones - not your average lager! Flavor nicely reflects the aroma, presenting a lager that drinks more like an ale. Mouthfeel offers fairly firm body and lively fizz. Can't beat home grown.

Bottle (BB Jan 10, 2018).
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (lemon oil, grass, kiwi, flowers, resin), with light notes of celery seed and detergent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
Pretty disappointing...kinda raw hop aroma with some off notes mixed in, so it's not enjoyable to sniff. Watery and thin and a bit sour in the mouth. oobawa (1854) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 Darn tasty lager from Victory, funneling multitudes of various hop goodies into one approachable, easygoing brew. Lemon, grapefruit, orange, pepper, dank, mint, grass and a underlying earthiness all weave in and out of a gentle, toasty lager base. Grassiness grows stronger as it warms, as does slight estery notes that pair well with the ebullient hopping. Pours a slightly hazed straw yellow with a modest white head and minor lacing. Nose is an explosion of hop notes, citrus and dank and pine underlined by lager yeast. Sparkly feel is good for repeated pint disposal. Not a fan of the term "crushable", but it fits here. Go-to beer indeed. eRock_2013 (522) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2017
Recently picked up a six pack of this brew to share with visiting family who are not as well-versed in craft beer, and this approachable lager seemed to be mainstream enough to satisfy their palates. Overall, it's a classic light-bodied and clean finishing pale lager with just an amped up hoppiness. Poured an ever-so-slightly hazy straw yellow with generous white foam, notes of cool floral hops on the nose. Taste is a light pilsner malty flavor with a more resiny hoppy bitterness, and it seems to me that the maltiness is too weak to balance out the moderate hoppy bite. It's still good, but not something I would seek out again due to the lack of balance, and it also strikes me as a bit stylistically confused, as it's more of a crossover with a hoppy session IPA. I personally will stick to Victory's Prima Pils as my go to sessionable craft lager, the malty flavor is much more assertive in their authentic pilsner rendition, along with a solid dose of hoppy bitterness.

Tap, ADT. Hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Juicy orange with grassy hops with a just touch of sweet. Crisp, hoppy finish. This packs a lot of flavor for the ABV. Refreshing and drinkable. Cakes (498) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2017
Twelve ounce bottle. I agree with what others have said, that this "Comes through like a session IPL or even a pale ale". I found this to be a very appealing American Lager. This beer is very hop forward - I compared it to a light IPA. This was a nice surprise in a variety 6 pack of Victory beers that I picked up at their Downingtown plant.
