Poured from a bottle into a straight pint glass. Pale yellow with very little head which soon disappears completely. No lace.

Clean, bready malt aroma with a touch of hops. Flavour is mostly sweetly malty but nicely balanced with the hops. Good body with some prickly carbonation. A decent but not outstanding Helles lager.

Not my first Victory, but my first Victory purchased on tap in SC! Poured a clear light amber amber with a small white head and a very quick fade, almost no retention, and only a slight bit of a residual lace. Very light smell, somewhat grainy with bread tones and not alot of fullness to it. The taste was decent, with a crisp, clean, smooth feel, but just not alot of profile to it. Grainey bread like taste, small hop trying to break through but just doesnthave enough to get through all the way. Overall this is a decent session beer nothing spectacular, but nothing bad either. Could definatly see myself throwing this down on a 90+ day, but at night as a tv beer, nah.

Musty (sneaker) malt nose. Yellow color in the glass with lots of bubbles.. quite carbonated. Sturdy white head that lasts and follows your lips. Taste is dominated by must malt with a slight sweetness in the finish. Medium mouth. This was a little dissappointing for a Victory product. Don't get me wrong it is not a bad beer.. just not the quality or complexity of their other selections.

Appearance is a slightly hazy deep yellow with a decent sized white head that goes quick. A bit of lacing remains throughout the life of the brew. Smells of malt and earthy hops with notes of spice and a few other things. This tastes of a wheat/grainy malt flavor with a slight sweetness. There is a small hop taste in there as well but I can’t detect much else. Mouthfeel is decent with good carbonation. This is a beer that would be good to give to someone who is used to macros to try and convert them. A fairly tasty lager that I would probably get again.

Pours a pale golden yellow with a small white head. In the aroma, a sweet maltiness. In the taste, a small sweet to dry maltiness and a very clean taste. A smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel and a small dry maltiness in the aftertaste. A very nice lager, yet nothing too exciting.
