3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally rated on 9/14/14. Usual amber body with a slight haze, thick cap that leaves some spotty lace. The aroma is of sweet, syrupy bread crust, and roasted malt. Taste is of all of those elements, and there is even a touch of spice. Overall a decent marzen, slightly above average."

Yellow straw with white head. Malt and candy sweet nose and some lemon with some mustiness.. Citrus in the profile, hops a bit cloying. Citrus hop flavor. A bit too much separate pieces not coming together here.

About what one would expect. Victory well known for their hops tackles a malty style and hops ensue. Oral this beer is a solid fest style beer plus dinner aggressive hops. I’m not sure it works overall, but it’s a decent stab at the concept.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz Undated bottle served in Peroni glass (from notes).
Clear copper with a creamy tan head. The head has decent retention but leaves little lacing.
Good malty aroma with a matching flavor! Although I thought the flavor was better than the nose. Sweet malt flavor with enough hops to produce a balance sweet and bitter.
Mouthfeel is OK, but more carbonation seemed desirable,
A marzen that is a bit above average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a deep amber with moderate head and light lacing. Aroma was of slightly sweet malts with a slight fruity background. Taste was primarily malts upfront with a slight tanginess and mild/moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall a nice Octoberfest/Marzen.

Draught. Copper red with small off white foamy head, doughy aroma, sour taste with a hint of grapefruit, low carbonation, long sour finish. Interesting oktoberfest with a different twist.
