A- Pours out a very clear golden lager color, deeper-gold with lots and lots of bubbles in a somewhat frothy, sticky head.
S - Wow this is one of the most grapefruit forward beers I've ever had. I mean literally smells like fresh grapefruit when you cut it in half and are about to eat it. Also smelling some grassy hops as well as some bready malts.
T- Taste is rather complex mix of citrus grapefruit and some grassy herbal hops. Also some sweet malt in there, very lager like.
P- The pallet is rather full but not overly rich making this pretty sessionalable and drinkable on a hot day. Bubbly, crisp and refreshing.
O-Overall I'm not unfamiliar with this beer nor any of victories offerings. I had this beer last summer yet this year's version seems a little better, tweaked to be a little more hoppy. I'll definitely be buying much more this stuff as the weather warms up. What I like about it is it isn't hollowed out in the middle like a lot of newer, hoppy sessionable summer beers which are becoming fashionable.

12 oz bottle. Pours a straw or light golden color with a nice white head that doesn't last long. Nice crisp malt aroma. Biscuit taste, the hop flavor is a nice bitterness that adds to the crispness. alexmate (285) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Hazy yellow colour, decent head. Taste is of lemon, grass and pine. Has a slightly sweet wheat taste associated with Belgian, German and French beers. Nice easy drinking, but lacking punch. 330ml can - Price Paid: £2.19. Bacchus66 (937) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2017
From tap. Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Pale malt, light hops, grassy notes, bread. Moderate carbonation. Long smooth finish with an interesting earthy note. Nice. 17Beer (414) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 8, 2017
12 oz bottle. Hops grass and pils scents. Pours a clear gold with a big rocky white head. Lacing. Nice crisp hop forward but balanced flavors of grass, malt and hops. Nice medium astringent finish. Super drinkable. jamiemac87 (194) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2017
Pours golden with a decent head.
Grassy tones and malt on the nose. Taste is malt with some citrus. Finishes bitter. Nothing offensive here, but a bit boring.

Pours a clear golden with little head......aroma of sweet bread.....taste is clean, fair mouthfeel, crisp finish, pale malt flavor comes through with little else....points for being an easily drinkable brew albeit little else. commonshawn (1321) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2017
12oz can. Straw color. Plain aroma. Taste is a bit skunky. Light medium body. Finish is dissapointing. Might have been something wrong with it, but didn’t enjoy it. NachlamSie (3568) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Pint at Atomic Cowboy. This is a pretty clear golden ale. A little woodsy hop nose has mild notes of citrus and crackery malt. The mouthfeel is on the fuller end of the style, but it’s still light enough. Flavor has notes of dough, seems predominantly pilsner malt but there’s a little something extra. This isn’t overly hoppy for a blonde ale, but has a solid bite to it. Finshes medium dry. katrinaez (2234) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Golden color and earthy hop aroma, light hoppy taste, a little grassy, easy summer drinking, bottle. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Tap at Public House. Pale golden with dissipating head. Light grapefruit aroma. Light bitter flavor. Dry.
