The ratings for this beer, both from the BA community, and the Brothers, have long puzzled me. I'm admittedly biased for German style offerings, with particular fondness for Bavarian profiles, so Victory's focus on hewing closely to traditional German examples undoubtedly appeals to my palate. Victory Lager nails the popular Helles lager that is most popular in Bavaria as the everyday beer. Pouring an unfiltered, slightly hazy pint is a nice twist, departing slightly from tradition, but that only adds to the appeal, in my opinion.
Hopheads (and I drift into and out of that spectrum regularly) likely will find this too mellow, but rather than judging Victory Lager against the biting IPAs or Belgian ales, I use the original German Helles as my reference point. And this beer hits the mark. This is an outstanding American interpretation of the original style.
