2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Backlog rating 2-06-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small very fizzy off-white head that quickly dissipated, transparent body, fast rising carbonation, no lacing, and the body has an orange hue. The Aroma consists of malt, caramel, fruit, and hops. The Taste is malty, hoppy, fruity, and sweet. The Palate is slightly tingly and this is a light-medium bodied beer. All-in-all, this beer is easy to drink, nothing complex about this beer, rather boring to drink and not a beer that I will drink again.

Victory Festbier is a decent Oktoberfest style but there are better options. Nice pour and malty aroma with the hint of hops. Color is a dark. Taste is a bit too sweet with a noticeable alcohol bite. Festbier is a middle of pack Autumn selection -- not bad but nothing to seek out either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark deep red with little head which fades fast. Malty wood taste, a vary nice taste note would be that of fresh fallin leaves in the fall. Also getting a very peachy/butter scotch after taste which is lovely. All n all a good buy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Only my second by Victory, and I was thoroughly impressed. From a bottle, rich and spiced aroma with a flavor to match. Pair excellently with roast pork loin. Excellent style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mostly malty but has a slight flaw, the palate is thin but contains much good taste, it's a very good drinking autumn beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color beer with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of grainy notes with light dry caramel malt notes. Taste is mostly dominated by grainy cereal notes with a dryer then expected caramel malt finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Easily drinkable though finish is not as clean as I would have expected.

Perhaps the best Oktoberfest. I have had this season.
Just an awesome Oktoberfest. Perfect amber color. Definitely quaffable.
