Pours so pale it's almost clear. Thin head. No smell. Tastes very bland with a bitter finish. No remarkable characteristics. I expect better from Victory.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear light golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Nice sticky lacing.

S: Light grains and noble hops. Smells like a lager.

T/F: Follows the nose. Light crackery grains.. mild citrus hops without being overly bitter. Clean and crisp. Light bodied... well carbonated.

O: As intended... an easy drinking summer beer. Light and flavorful. Tasted great after the 1st lawn mow of the season.

On tap, poured into a pint glass.

L---Light golden color. Completely clear. Thick white head faded quickly, but still left a lot of lacing.

S---Citrus/lemon is most noticeable. There are both hops and malts apparent.

T---Very well balanced between hops & malts. A bit of lemon. Crisp & clean, like a summer beer should be

F---Feels like a summer beer. Not heavy. Quenching & leaves you wanting another.

O---A quality offering by Victory. It just showed up on tap at a local bar I go to weekly. I hope it stays there all spring & summer. I'll definitely have a few more.

12 oz bottle. Pours a straw or light golden color with a nice white head that doesn't last long. Nice crisp malt aroma. Biscuit taste, the hop flavor is a nice bitterness that adds to the crispness.
