Attractive straw yellow, with an ample head of fine white foam. Medium lace.

Aroma is grainy and malty. Appealing and straightforward.

Flavor is crisp and grainy -- picture-perfect for a lager. This one's rich and full-flavored, though, not at all watery. Maybe not to the same level as Victory's Prima Pils, but definitely a delicious and enjoyable lager.

Color is a light transparent gold, with a thin pale white head that fades quickly. The smell is mainly citrus with a bit of freshly baked bread. Nice, but I wish it were stronger. The taste is much like the smell - heavily citrus with a touch of bread. This has a stronger citrus taste than probably any other lager I've had. Very crisp, drinkable, and refreshing. Certainly a big step above most mainstream lagers.

On tap served in a pint glass

A - Clear straw with 1 finger white head with good retention and moderate lacing

S - pretty wimpy lager yeast, malt, citrus

T - Nothing standout, your standard lager, not very bitter with a nice touch of wheat.

M - Light body, high carbonation, effervescent, smooth.

O - Good summer beer, but Victory has so many other better brews I would never get this again.
