This is a beer I drink on a weekly basis but have never taken the time to review. I've had this both on draft and bottle many times. However, I think a fresh keg is the best way to experience this brew. So I will review based on that experience.
A: A bright golden yellow with a slight haze. Foamy white head which settles to 1/2" with some basic lacing. Not particularly beautiful, but good for the style.
S: Floral hop notes with some pepper, lemon zest, and biscuit notes. Very clean and refreshing aroma. No noticable sulfur which is a huge plus in my book. Hands-down the best aroma from a lager I have experienced. Overall, the aroma is of medium intensity.
T: Spicy bitter hops with some lemon and cereal flavors. A nice dry grapefruit juice flavor at the finish. There are many particular flavors in Victory's lagers which I can not put my finger on. However, I could pick one out blind anyday. Unbelievably refreshing and complex.
M: A nice light body with rather strong carbonation which I prefer for this style. Highly drinkable and a great session beer.
O: This has been, and will most likely remain, my favorite lager. Victory is a true master of lagering. And I normally hate most lagers!
Serving type: on-tap
