Victory Cage Radler

Posted: December 7, 2016 in Fruit/Vegetable Beer, Reviews, Victory Brewing Company

Tonight’s beer is a new offering from Victory in cans. Val wanted to give it a shot, so she let me have a few sips when she cracked it open. She’s a big fan of shandies and radlers and lighter beers, although she hates Berliner weisses because she doesn’t like any sour beers.


ABV: 3%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our spin on a German classic connects lemon freshness with crisp lager. Effervescent notes of lemonade, lemon zest, and a hint of graininess. Light, dry, and extremely drinkable, this clean and crisp lager is perfectly balanced with the flavors and aromas of fresh lemon.”

Random: This beer uses pilsner malt.

This brew poured with a half a finger of white head. It went away quickly and didn’t leave any lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, bright yellow color. Despite the cloudiness, I could see some carbonation on the beer. The nose was bright and filled with Country Time lemonade powder and grain. The taste was also filed with lemon juice and Country Time lemonade powder. The grain came through next, but the dominant flavor was lemonade. It had a very light body with high carbonation. The finish was almost instant with lemonade and lemon zest. A can of this was reasonable at $1.75 ($.15 per ounce). Generally, I’m not a big fan of radlers (they tend to be more in Val’s wheelhouse), but this one was alright and I could throw it back if it was handed to me.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
