OK, purchased a single because I wanted to try another Summer beer. This one obviously was created by some marketing wiz, because the label was very nostalgic. Although when poured it wasn't anything special, I gave high marks...because of the bottle. Go ahead, cut me down. I drank from the bottle, just like how I drink Mezcal.
Smell: The smell of cheap beer. Maybe some floral. I don't know. Definitely not impressed.
Taste: Definitely a light summer ale. Very light. It is what it is. Not too flavorful. You could definitely drink these all day, especially when at a ball game. (again, kudos to the ad wizards)
Mouthfeel: Light, definitely night. Floral, mild bitterness at the end. Again, these could go down like water.
Overall: Very drinkable. It is what it is. This beer should be a few bucks more than Coors/Bud/Miller. The label alone would make the sale. But if you want a flavorful complex beer (which sometimes is not needed in the summer heat), then you should look elsewhere.

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.

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 -8.6%
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
