look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Color / Carb = like a very pale Easter egg yellow dye, with moderate foam

Smell = muted fruity / hops

Taste = hits you initially, then lingers (too much) in a bad way (again, not a hop lover); light with dry aftertaste; 1.5 rungs above your standard domestic lager with some added fruit/floral flavor. Refreshing ? Enough, or moreso, barely.

Just noticed the laundry list that Victory now puts out, and my hopes now rest on the Victory Altbier offering that I saw advertised with Sierra Nevada Beer Camp tour / 12 pack coming July-2014.
