Light brown beer with nice clarity. Short cropped bone head has sunken and struggles to leave trail along the glass.

English milding malts and perfumey hops. Toastiness is not pronounced, but there. Hushed aroma.

Tangy and malty, but attenuated. Hops are a light floral note that keeps things interesting. Some light pomme and nuttiness. Not an elegant beer, but passably decent.

Carbonation is a little low, body a little drab. Still drinks good.

An okay beer. Not a solid session ale, just decent. I could drink this at a social gathering, one after another.

Served on-tap in a Shaker pint at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Dusky medium brown, opaque, with 1/2 finger of light beige head with decent retention and a few dots of lace.

S: Crackery and bready with a light caramel undercurrent and soft herbal and floral hopping

T: The flavor is very subtle with light caramel up front melting away to soft dark maltiness with raisin and a little bit of leather character. The hops are herbal and earthy as you'd expect. Everything is nicely balanced. I wish this beer had a little more power in the flavor category and little more to distinguish it. It is a nice beer, but I can't say a lot more about it than that because it is so subdued.

M: They did a great job with the mouthfeel, carbonation is low and the body is light-medium. There is a velvet smoothness that makes this a really good session beer choice.

O: Another solid beer from Victory but not one of their more distinctive offerings.

Victory : D-town Brown

LOOK: Light brown and perfectly clear, soapy slight off white head forms and leaves plenty of lace.

SMELL: Toasted malted barley, grassy hops, and caramel.

TASTE: Caramel, fairly hoppy, with an even finish. Munich style malts and American hops, this tastes like a bastardized Oktoberfest. Light toffee and finely milled malt flavor, and very clean at that.

FEEL: Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation.

OVERALL: Solid brown ale with a German influence. Drinkable with a nice hop presence.

Back on tap at Victory - Oct 2012 - after a long hiatus. Deep brown in color with a decent head that disappates to minimal over time. Good lacing on the glass and nice mouthfeel from the tap. Smells malty with a hint of a fall leaves. Quality flavor with a hint of sweetness - maybe some brown sugar.

Deep deep dark color, pretty creamy head. Smell is extremely faint, but all I can pick up is coffee. Good smelling coffee, though. Taste is more coffee, some caramel, and a hint of toffee- like a light stout- tasty, but nothing overly complex- just tasty.

Mouthfeel is full and chewy, very nice. Overall drinkable, a good brew. I don't think it was anything particularly exceptional, but it was good for what it was, a tasty, refreshing beer. I'd have it again.

On tap at DBA in NYC.
A very, very dry brown ale. Scant chocolate and caramel sweetness to be found but mostly there is a dry hops presence in mouthfeel not so much in flavor.
A slight nutty presence to be found. Makes me think of what an unsweetened cola might be like.
Easy drinking beverage.
I wouldn't mind seeing this in bottle form.

Schlepped it on the subway with this one on 5/12/2005. 16-oz. pint at the Cambridge Common.

¼-inch tight white of starting coat settles to a fungal covering with some stick, not inordinate. Deep brown hue with almost touches of red, pure clarity and largely mute. Meaty malt wetness on nose with almost a tangy notch at the end. Seemingly fruit bubblegum to taste which is followed by a cutting chop of caramel malt and just a hint of smoke. Fairly smooth, though verging on sticky on the mouth with a medium body.

Good, and far from sweet, though not off the charts.
