4.73/5  rDev +26.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: pale gold
Smell: piney, citrusy hops nose, but not overwhelming.
Taste: The taste matches the nose- refreshing flavours and nicely hoppy, but not overly so
Mouthfeel: light enough to be refreshing, but nowhere near light enough to be bland.

Overall: Victory Summer Love may approach the Platonic Ideal of a summer beer.

Serving type: bottle

Love this stuff , the aroma of flowery hops , just the right bite, light carbonation, lovely beer tast. I'm hooked !!! I could drink this till the cows come home. A quality session beer that will not bankrupt you. You will not tire of the taste of this lovely brew.

Serving type: on-tap

Clear yellow with a single finger of thick white head. Pretty good retention. Nice slippery rings of lace.

Citrusy american hops, some grass, pungent. A bit of nondescript malt underneath.

Light citrus hops, clean malt flavor, crisp finish. Absolutely perfect for a summer beer.

Light bodied, good carbonation.

I wish this was as cheap as Bud, I'd drink it all G-D summer long. The best commercial lawnmower beer I've ever had.

Serving type: bottle
