Poured from an undated 12 oz. bottle: hazy and yellow with golden highlights. A nice creamy white head dissipated leaving intricate lacing on the glass.

The aroma was a fresh whiff of sweet malts and mild bittersweet fruit.

The flavor has a pleasant punch of citrus and tangerine with a gentle lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue.

The body is somewhat light and the mouthfeel is zesty and rather thin which is rather typical for this refreshing style of ale. The flavor on the palate is slightly astringent by short-lived.

I could not think of a better ale to have on a warm summer evening. While the ale is not complex, it has a solid flavor profile and remains thirst quenching from start to finish.

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.
