Fantastic for the type of beer that it is. It is a German style brewed by an ale. And it is a surprising success. I was scared at the name. I bought a 12 pack, because the mix pack 12 pack was sold out. But this is an extra pale ale and it is a rare and exemplary find of this style of ale. It has that superb refreshing crispness, like you get with the finest lagers, but also at the same time, you get the wonderful fulless of a quality light ale. That's it, that sums it up for me. Best served at 40 deg F. It is a style found in remote parts of England and it makes sense that Victory is one of my favorite breweries, ever since I lived in Philadelphia.
