COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as All Malt Lager (Helles) & V Lager

There was a time when all beer tasted this good. Back when immigrant Brewmasters turned fresh malts and hops into liquid gold. Before big business lessened our precious beer with corn and rice. Having trained in Germany, we thirst for better beer. So, we brew better beer like this crisp, golden, helles-style lager. Brewed with patience from quality German malts and hops, it is a Victory for Your Taste!

Malt: Imported 2 row German malts

Hops: Whole flower German hops

Poured an effervescent golden with a large fizzy white head. Aroma of corn and a touch of hops. Taste is somewhat grassy and hoppy with a touch of corn and sweetness. Decently smooth.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2005
From the bottle. Pale straw yellow, light head. Lightly hoppy, wet grassy and bread aroma. Fairly standard at first, but shines in the finish with sweet doughy malts, slight bitterness as well.

jcwattsrugger (12347) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2005
12 oz bottle-pours a thick head, quickly reduces to very thin. Color is a clear pale yellow. Aroma is grain-sweet malt. Taste is grain-sweet malt, mild carbonation (to start). Dry finish. Only drawback, the carbonation diminishes throughout the glass of beer. 3.2 -on tap-pours a straw/yellow color with no head. Taste is a smooth grain, light on the carbonation. 3.0

Better than Budweiser, yet pale (no pun intended) compared to the others available. Not sure why this wasnt already on here and Im probably missing it -- if so, I apologize!

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2005
pours a pale golden color with a small white head, aromas of sweet malts and corn, as well as its taste, this beer is kinda boring, better than most american macro brew, but nothing special at all

This bottle was a dissappointment, for me. Victory is usually a great to excellent brew. This was better then the mass produced stuff, but lacking all around.

Draft at Mellow Mushrooms Victory tasting party. Tight white head atop a beautifully clear yellow beer. Other than that, I found it to be somewhat "basic." Not bad at all; just little character for a Victory brew.

haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Kind of sweet, some malt, and other aromas i couldnt identify. Smooth taste. Not much action though. Definitely doesnt live up to the other Victory brews.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with short-lived carbonated white head. Somewhat offensive nose of sweetness and corn. Light flavors of bready malts, apples, and more and more corn as it warms up. Tastes like cheap German beer, especially disappointing considering Victorys track record.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Clear and bright gold with rising, champagne-like bubbles. Crisp up front; sweet, soft and chewy in the finish. Sugary grains, cereal and a pinch of creamed corn. Gentle notes of fruit, such as pear and white grapes. Mild, flowery bitterness seemed to round things out pretty well. Pleasant beer.
