3.69/5 rDev -1.1%
Poured bottle into glass. 5.2% abv
Appearance- Light yellow with a bubbly 2 finger head. Quite clear.
Smell- A blend of sweet malt along with lemon.
Taste- A sourbread-like malt flavor that has some soapiness quality about it. The hints of lemon citrus from the nose follow into the taste. The flavor ends with hop bitterness and some pepper like spice as well. The malt is strong as it even is there in the finish. Much more malty than hoppy but this is as it should be for the style.
Mouthfeel- Thin to medium and dry. The carbonation makes this beer alive on the palate.
Overall- Not too much unlike a German pilsener but has qualities of an ale to it such a the hops on the back end of the taste. As being new to the blond ale style, I thought this was refeshing due to the thinner body and lemon zest it has to it. I thought the malt up front was a bit bland however, though that does not detract too much from it. Not a bad offering from Victory.

On tap at the Mellow in Greensboro.Poured into a standard pint a clear light golden with a sticky 1/2 finger bone white head.Citric and herbal hops dominate the nose along with a toasted malt base,really liked the big play on the hops.Flavors of citrusy hops provide the main flavor component along with light herbalness,a dryer toasty malt base holds true to the finish.This is a great summer beer,a great hop profile and very drinkable,well done Victory.

12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is honey, malts and a little noble hops.
The flavor is grainy malts and grassy hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with light smooth carbonation.
Overall, an OK subdued hoppier blonde ale. Not too exciting.

3.98/5 rDev +6.7%
12 ounce bottle, without freshness info.
Pour is clear, dull golden amber. Loose, eggshell white head, Leaves some minor spots of lacing.
Light spice of peppery hops on the nose.
Pleasantly light, crisp and hopped up blond.
Quite dry, bready malts, more pepper infused hops. Quite enjoyabe, as the label says "at the ball park or under a shade tree"
A lot of flavor and character in a lighter bodied beer. Fine summer drinking.

3.4/5 rDev -8.8%
Appearance: 1/3 inch head, light yellow in color, clear, high carbonation
Smell: piney and citrus hops
Taste: piney hops with some grassiness
Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, bitter, but not overly so with light sweetness in the back
Overall: Very drinkable, bitter beer that I see as a good lawnmower beer. I could have a couple or just as well pass. Decent, not great
