A 12oz bottle with a BB of Sept 2011, so it's a little past it's best. Picked up from my local beer specialist.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A hazy straw colour with good carbonation and fine visible sediment. Forms a small head of white foam with a creamy texture; this lasts for a minute or so before subsiding. Aroma of light, grainy malt with a faint hint of citrus hops.

Tastes of light malt with a subtle aromatic hop flavour and a crisp finish. Notes of citrus and floral hops, accompanied by a hint of dry yeast. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with light astringency. Decent body for a light style. Aftertaste of floral aromatic hops.

A rather nice lager - a light, slightly hoppy flavour puts this a cut above industrial fare. Refreshing; would be great on a hot day. Too bad it's a bit expensive over here for everyday drinking. Worth sampling.

Pours a pure golden yellow with 1/2" of loose, foamy white head that fades to a thin lacing. There are noticeable carbonation bubbles rising to the top. The nose has a lemony, grassy aroma. The taste is lightly malty, lemony, grassy, and earthy. The mouthfeel is light and smooth with perfect carbonation.

This a well balanced, very smooth, easily drinkable beer.

lagers usually bore my palate, and this one is really no different, except for the fact that it is so damn good. it is crisp as can be, has more than a watery body, and is not a corn beer. it pours light and thin, but has enough to it that it works with big food. it is really refreshing with that german style malting that leaves it flavorful and distinct. helles style i believe. wouldnt chose it over most other victory beers, but this one is proof that a golden lager made in the USA can still excite from time to time.
