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

(sample @ brewery) very pale yllow, bright, with a pretty white head. aroma is relatively neutral-hop and malt balanced and very light. flavor is crisp with a good hop finish-tastes like saaz. simple, easy to drink beer, well-balanced.

Very clear, pale yellow body with a thin white head. Lightly sweet, very mild hops, slightly grassy. Starts out with mild malt and mild lemon zest; finishes doughy and slightly hoppy. A solid beer, but overall I’m not that impressed.

Poured from a bottle into the Sam Adams glass. Poured a clear golden color with a smallish white head. It has a malty aroma along with some floral hops. Taste of faint roasted malts and light hops come through at the end. A nice session beer.

Bottle into a Lager glass, a lite gold color with a thick white head that dies fast. Tastes of malt and the summer sun. It is a fine light Lager.

A nice little simple lager for being outside in the heat. Nothing fancy, just spot on lager flavor. Which is what I assume Victory was going for here. Cheers.

OMG this beer sucks. Its as though Victory decided to make a Miller lite clone. It looks like piss and tastes like water. I want my $9 back!

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Hazy yellow with a thin tan head. Floral hop aroma with a little citrus. A little bit bitter with a citrusy kind of finish. Tastes more like a wheat beer or summer ale than what I expected from a lager. Decent, but not one of their best.

On tap at Victory. Fine for a lager. Although, I don’t see much appeal in any beer that proclaims itself "All-Malt." Boring by definition and they get what they’re going for.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 My second rating of this beer is better than the first which was old beer. Good looking lager with a QD head. Nice fullness of palate for a lager with malt sweetness and a mild hopping. Grassy hop flavor is more dominant than is the malt. A good beer for style but not my favorite.

2.5
Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Bottled, pours thick white head atop a pale yellow body. Aroma was of apples, eggs, flowery nectar and soft malt sweetness. Flavor was cereal, nectar, slightly fruity and starchy sweet. Palate was light and gave a lasting bite on top of the tongue as well as being sweetly oily. The only really good thing I can say about this beer is that it was hoppier than a yuengling, it did not however match up in any other way. An oddly unfortunate beer from an otherwise great brewery.
