This was the second beer that I had at City Tap House. I was trying to have lower ABV beers since it was early in the day and I was curious about how this (relatively) new lager from Victory would be.
Style: American Pale Lager
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Gotta give the people what they want, right? A lot of you have been searching for your next go-to beer. Something hoppy, but still drinkable and refreshing. Search no further! Six varieties of American whole flower hops pack bold and juicy flavors into this crisp, drinkable lager. Meet Victory Home Grown. Your NEW American Lager.”
Random: One of the prettiest bars that I’ve ever been to is in the original Victory brewery.
The beer poured with less than half a finger of pure white head. The body was mostly clear except for some chill haze and straw yellow in color. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose was relatively mild with some toasted grain and also had an odd chemical characteristic. The taste luckily did not have the same chemical characteristic, although it had plenty of toasted grain. It was quickly followed up by a touch of Noble hops, but the grain was dominant in this beer. The body was light with lots of carbonation. It had a quick finish with the Noble hops. I liked this beer, but it didn’t wow me. I could see this beer as a good addition to a barbecue for people who are used to drinking Bud Light who may want to branch out to craft beer.
