The best American rendition of the style I have come across.
It has an almost Vienna Lager quality to it, with great malt notes balanced out perfectly with the correct amount and type of hops.
I really wish this was available at my local beer distributor, as it would be a regular purchase.
Can't beat $5 for a 22oz draft of damn near perfection. Very well made.
Victory does not disappoint.

On tap at PJ Whelihan's in a pint glass.

L---Well, it's copper alright. Clear and bright. No head and no lacing.

S---Sweet & malty.

T---Very sweet & malty. There's some caramel in there as well.

F---Sticky sweet. Was not really refreshing.

O---I'm usually a big fan of Victory, but this one missed for me.

I knew by looking at this lager, it was going to have a similar feel to another local beer, Yuengling. Upon first taste, I could immediately taste the caramel undertones, which caused an aftertaste that I'm personally not a huge fan of.
