12 oz battle poured into a pils glass. Thin white head and not much in the way of lacing. A single spot hovers in the center of the surface. Color is a pale straw yellow.

Smell has a slightly wet blanket grain aroma. Taste is surprisingly white grapish. A little spice from the yeast.

Mouthfeel is light but slightly oily.

This Victory lager poured a light golden yellow. Very little head and what head was there quickly disappeared. The scent was subtle. Light malt, mostly light wheat grains. The flavor was crisp and subtle. Light malts, not very powerful. Soft lager style wheat flavor. The mouthfeel was refreshing, and there was little aftertaste. Nice lager, but would like a little more power behind it.
