On tap @ the Victory Brewing Company (Downingtown, PA) on 5/19/12. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear copper, with a ½ finger of rich bright-white head. This retains with a thin creaminess that rings the sides of the glass with sticky lacing. The aroma has a fresh brightness to it in the nose, smelling of grass and citrus, which is undercut by a softer malt flavor that holds a touch of sulfur and mineral notes to it. Overall though, it’s the freshness of those hops that really drive this.

The taste is on the sweeter side with a honeyed and bready feeling malt presence, which gives way to moderately biting mix of citrus and spice. The finish is dry and lightly pithy, with a lingering spiciness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a firm crispness up front and more of a smooth firmness that flows along the back. There is a nice movement to the feel despite the 6% ABV on this. It’s got some chewiness to it but is still pretty drinkable.

This was OK. It was overall a little too sweet for my tastes but the hops did lend this a fresh bite that kept this about as crisp on the palate as it could get. I just wish there was a little more excitement to it.

Served in a special shaker glass for the Winking Lizard's Glass of the Month. Tasted/reviewed at the WL in Mentor, OH.

Clear, straw with about two fingers of stark white head when served, fairly slow to drop. Some lacing.

Sweet caramel malt and hint of lemons. Malt dominates.

Malty, lemony, good balance of bitterness.

Fairly light on mouthfeel, with good level of carbonation. Very crisp.

Highly drinkable and refreshing. Could session this all night

On tap at Victory. Served in a sample glass. Pours a clear near-blonde color. Very light and crisp. Nice firm hop bitterness through the flavor with a base graininess. Super refreshing and easy to drink.

First had: on tap at Victory, Downingtown, PA

Clear copper pour, with a rocky white head that retained well and left some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is not too big, pale malts, notes of cut grass and citrus pith. Taste brings a touch of bitterness up front, grassy and crisp, mellowing out with a pale malt sweetness and a generous dollop of honey, light hints of must and spice. Light-medium body. I liked this one quite a bit.

On tap at Victory. Pours a clear light gold with light head. Nose is grainy and mild, fairly subdued though pleasant and fresh. Mouth is distinctive Bock malt, crisp, bright hops. More grass and fresh cracked grains in the mouth. Full bodied and fairly rich, with a bit of sweetness lingering about. Medium carbonation.

A- Pours a clear pale yellow with a very thin white head. Head quickly becomes a few bubbles and leaves no lacing.

S- Smells of lemons, a peppery spice, yeast and bready malts.

T- Quite a bit of spices and yeast here. A touch of lemon and a bit of bitterness from the hops. Seems like quite a mess and nothing is really working together.

M- Light in body and good amount of carbonation.

O- I'll pass on this one.
