Close to 10 years of cra ft beer geekdom living in both the philly suburbs and south central PA and I have yet to try this Victory offering... Looking around for something new and unpretentious, this called out to me today from the shelves... An average pour yields slightly less than a fingers worth of audibly fizzy crisp off-white colored froth that displays minimal to no retention... It leaves behind a thin veil of splotchy lacing an thin collar... The color is an exceedingly pale golden straw... A light to moderate bit of average paced carbonation rises randomly throughout... The nose is simple and clean... Loaded with rich bready malts and cereal grains... A light euro hop presence... On the palate this one is a bit of a subdued version of the nose... Perhaps you can mix in a touch of lemon zest as well... The mouthful is on the fuller side of light bodied... A bit thin... A very limited bit of carbonation bite... Goes down rather uneventfully... A simple and somewhat enjoyable beer, but in the future I'd much rather opt for the Prima Pils, Stoudt's Gold or a Sly Fox offering to itch my Pennsylvania German lager itch...

12oz. bottle served in a pilsener glass. Enjoy by 15 Jun 2015 printed on the label. Pours a straw gold with no head, just a soapy, fizzy slick. Copious tiny bubbles are seen effervescing in-solution. Nose expresses cereal grains and a light, grassy quality. Taste follows nose - fairly clean with a faint sour mash skunk towards the back. Mouthfeel is light in body with a lively carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, simple, refreshing and quite drinkable.
