Victory Brewing Co. - Victory Lager

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a Pilsner glass

This Helles-style lager from Victory pours a light and pale body with a very yellowy hue with some almost-green tints. The beer is slightly hazy with a thin head that's light on retention but leaves bits of lace on the glass. The nose is sweet with floral notes and a huge clover honey component. The light waxy aroma is reminiscent of honeycomb.

Honey sweetness for days up front with mild malts backing. The beer is lightly hoppy with a Noble-type hop edge. Mild bitterness adds some depth to the beer, but is second to the malt character. There's a light, fresh grassiness and a slight herbal tinge. The crisp and velvety carbonation added with the accessible flavor makes this very drinkable and refreshing. Ideal for Summer drinking.

Final Verdict: B+
