Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

The malt aroma seems authentic enough, but the pour lacks the expected firmness and hop lacing. A clean malt flavor is let down by somewhat harsh hops. Festbier lacks the complexity to compete with the best German Marzens.

From a bottle poured amber with little head. Nice full malty flavor with spice. Good finish.

Toasty ,cereal malt, just like an authentic German Oktoberfest should smell like crisp clean malts in taste, with just a hint of candy sucker sweetness,drys out in finish with a lingering hop bitterness in finish,which actually becomes a little aggressive towards the middle of your glass

This beer smells a bit like honey and raisons. It is milky bronze in color and has a very small head. The flavor is sweet with a nice clean finish. An enjoyable Oktoberfest!!

Nothing overpowering here but it has a nice smooth feel, toffee caramel fruit, straw, and a little hoppy pinch in its end. Some carbonation is present in the finish.

Nov 2005 - Poured orangish, coppery color with nice fluffy head. Aroma and flavor was sweet malts and caramel. Very sweet with slight hop finish. Pretty good tailgating brew!

Pours a clear dark golden color with a quick diminishing head. Has a heavy syrup texture, with hints of spice and light citrus fruits. Finished with a light hoppy taste. Reminded me of apple juice.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

I was very excited to try this. I like most Victory beers. I was very disappointed in this one. The beer is very light almost effervescent and drinkable almost like a red ale with a bit of spices added. It is not as heavy or flavorful as I would expect in an Oktoberfest.
