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

j12601 (11831) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle back at Paul’s place after the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a hazed yellow with a medium sized white head. Light grain, a little citrus. Crisp and sweet grain. Soft wheat. Quite crisp. Sweet, crisp, and grainy on the finish.

shrubber85 (11402) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Bottle. Sweet corn/barley malt aroma. Light yellow with small head but moderate effervescence. Initially sweet corn malt flavor with a sour, light hops finish. Moderate carbonation. Pretty much par for the style.

3.4
hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Bottle… Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is of straw, butterscotch/toffee with a suggestion of jalapeno. Malty, sweet flavor with a touch of honey. Mildly hopped. Medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet and grassy.

Bottle shared. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have bready and biscuity malt, mild floral notes, straw, pretty basic and bland, I would not revisit this.

jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2006
Pale yellow, small white head. Muted sweet grainy aroma. Flavr is fairly sweet and malty with a mild bitterness just enough to keep it balanced and interesting. Average palate. Quaffable but pretty dull/mainstream for victory. Thanks Lou18!

3.1
KyotoLefty (10263) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2014
Tap at Pony Bar. Medium gold color with lace. Nice malty, biscuit nose. Light bitterness, nice lemony, floral hops at first, but in the end, rather plain.

2.5
GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 26, 2009
330 mL. Pours piss yellow with not even a one-finger head that dwindles to nothing. No lacing. Aromas of grass, corn, orange blossom honey. Taste is bubbly upfront with some light honey and cereal grain with a powerful blast of white sugar and then turns slightly acidic and astringent with some barely noticeable balancing dry hops more reminiscent of freshly cut grass. Overall lackluster, bland, nothing to rave about.

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Spicy, herbal hop notes under crisp biscuity pils malt...A dry ending is cajoled by tepid citrus fruit...A beautifully rounded body is lean enough to remain very drinkable, yet can still create satiety...

3.5
onceblind (9662) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Brilliantly clear light golden with a thin white head. Clean biscuity/crackery lagery nose. Clean and crackery flavor with lots of pale German malts. Straight forward and lagery, with that Helles cleanness.
