What the label says:

Brewed to celebrate Admiral Nelson and his crew.  It is powerful, pale copper coloured with a peppery aroma and goes well with stew and gravy dishes.

What the Beerdrinker says:

As our local brewery, the Beerdinker knows that Victory Ale has nothing to do with Nelson and was brewed in celebration of Batemans remaining a family brewer after an unsuccessful takeover bid by a major national brewer.  The beer has a very malty nose and an intensely bitter after taste.  Caramel and coffee tastes produce an exceptional beer.
