3.8/5 rDev -2.8%
Victory Brewing Company
ABV: 4.60 %
LOOK: Clear golden color, with a foam cap and leaving plenty of lacing.
SMELL: Distinct lager yeast smell, grass, cooked veggies, stewed hops, fresh bread and a bit buttery as well.
TASTE: Clean bready malt flavor like a typical German Kolsch. Herbal tea like hopping with mild grassy, leafy flavor and bitterness. Bready, well balanced, very lightly bitter lager.
FEEL: Light bodied, stinging carbonation. Light, easy to drink , very mellow.
OVERALL: A pretty nice kolsch, but does not separate itself from many others in the style. Pretty standard, not that there's anything wrong with that.

3.95/5 rDev +1%
On tap at Varga Bar in Philly on 8/3/12, served in a shaker.
Pour: Completely clear yellow orange with a finger and a half white head.
Smell: Grassy hops with a light caramel sweetness. Not very substantial on the nose.
Taste: Bready malts sweetness to the max, with a pleasant floral and grassy hoppiness.
Mouthfeel: Really light and drinkable, but still packed with flavor. Very, very refreshing.
Overall: My first kolsch and I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

A - Poured with a small head of white foam on s clear, golden body. The head settles quickly but leaves good lace.
S - Clean malt and lightly spicy hops with little else.
T - Light, bready malt up front with a little bit of spicy hop character. Some musty bitterness in the middle with grainy notes in the finish and a lingering bitterness.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.
D - Not bad, but a littler too hoppy and lacking in malt character. still vy drinkable.

Enjoyed at the brewpub in Downingtown, PA
A: half finger head on a clear straw colored body. Scattered lacing.
S: grain and pale malts with slight sweet corn. Light aroma overall.
T: very nice grain and pale malt flavor with perfect degree of bitterness. Corn but not sweet notes. Light earthy hop character late in the finish.
M: light body and high carbonation.
Overall: very clean and drinkable. This is a generally dull category but this one is about as flavorful and clean as the style gets.

On-tap at the brewery. Pours a very clear, very light golden color with a small, quickly settling white head and patchy lacing. Bready, grainy malt aroma with floral, spicy hops.
Taste has floral and somewhat fruity hop notes that give the beer an appealing, assertive bitterness in combination with crackery malt and a nice spicy note. Low overall sweetness. Lightly lingering bitter aftertaste.
Overall an excellent example of the style. Very crisp, clean and dry. Lively carbonation on a light body. Highly quenching and refreshing, probably the best American-made kolsch I’ve had.
