Golden yellow pour with aroma of citrus, biscuit, and pine. Citrus and caramel sweetness with bread malt and some hop bite. Very nice.
Simple, neutral malt with grassy/raw new world hops showing lemon, flowers, some pine stink. In with some autolyzed yeast / chalky notes, while the body is light and watery. Bitter, lightly sweet, slightly metallic finish. Good head retention and slight haze in a sparkling gold body make it nice to look at, and it's easy to drink without giving it much attention. bavarian81 (171) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2018 Clear, bright gold color. Had a mostly sweet aroma.. light bread and lemon. Super clean and crisp. Subtle lemon flavor and a dry hoppy finish ajnepple (7700) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2018
12 oz single can from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Yellow colored appearance with slight sedimentary haze and a white head. Aroma of toasted grain, mild citrus zest and light floral notes. Similar flavor, adding mild hop bitterness and a light grainy sweetness. Light body with ample carbonation and a crisp, slightly dry finish. Solid lager overall.

Clear, light gold with a tall white head.
Aroma of strong grapefruit, mixed citrus.
Taste is sweet, mildly spicy citrus, grain malt.
Really bright and refreshing.....a very nicely done blend of the different hops. jcr (2814) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2018
Can. Golden body with a frothy, white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, lemon, citrus, resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, eatery texture, fizzy carbonation. Taste of lemon, bitterness, citrus with floral notes — bitter, sour flowers. Kind of crisp and kind of flabby. That and competing flavors muddle the whole thing.

Soft straw blonde pour with one finger of white head. Nose is soft and grassy with some subtle citrus/fruit, rustic grain, and toasted bread. Softer on the palate than I figured a Victory would be. Moderate to mild bitterness with some citrus zest showing. A bit grassy and dry on the finish. VastActiv (8153) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2018
Tap at Thirsty Moose, Portsmouth. Color is clear golden with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Sweetness, grain and malts. Way too sweet. rjplumer (1284) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2018
The aroma is a subtle blend of tropical fruit, resin and grain. The body is a hazy golden straw topped with a modest white head that fades quickly to light film. Starts with some bitterness which a blend of resin and grain maltiness follows. Jayb0 (1227) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2018
I think this beer is being under-rated in a pretty serious way. Maybe due to style, maybe due to the overall success of Victory, maybe due to the fact that a craft brewery is being seen to make a crowd pleaser? I don't know but I do know this, based on the beer itself, it's kick-ass. a perfect balance of crisp and fresh lager, stony minerality, malt backbone and noticeable but complementary hopping. Really well done and likely to be stocked in my fridge going forward, right alongside great beers of other styles, like Petrus, Brooklyn black chocolate, Cantillon, etc... hopdog (13396) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2018
