COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Pours a dark copper, with a head that quickly fades. This beer has some malty sweetness, may be a bit overcarbonated and the hop bitterness is more than usual. Not a bad beer.

shrubber85 (10528) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle. Strong grainy malt and caramel aroma. Copper color with small head. Caramel and strong barley malt flavor with a mild hops finish. A very nice festbier - I really like the flavor of the malt in this beer, and it has much more body than most beers in this style.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Pours an attractive caramel color with small head. Aroma is yeasty with notes of maple syrup, honey, lemon, and slight floral hops. Flavor is slightly malty with nice notes of honey and grain to compliment the yeast. Pretty good for a lager. Not altogether light, which I think is a good thing.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Pours a clear amber that has a brownish/orangue hue to it. Creme head. This beer just looks good.Nose has some leafy character to it. Just earthy overall. Flavor is vibrant and full. Nice deeper leaf tone to it. Very, very minor roasted thing going on. Leaves what I think is an inky aftertaste. Feel has a very good level of carbonation to it and the liquid is good. Overall a good marzen. Probably a bit too deep to make a session out of it, but would probably pair very well with food.

tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - SEP 6, 2007
draft. pours clear brown orange, minimal head. aroma reminded me of honey. light, clean honey. nice malt and grain flavors in the taste. dry, light bitter finish. a solid lager. nothing too complex, but they did well on the malts. my wife liked this one a lot.

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Pours transparent, reddish-orange. Dill and vinegar on the nose over a brawny malt foundation. Touches of caramel and biscuit character. Tastes similarly vegetal and mildly sour. A bit of lemonade, some butterscotch and musty noble hops. The quietest hint of mint leaves. Not quite on the right track here. Cornbread and a metallic twinge precede a stale and salty malt finish. Like sea air. Mildly heavy in the mouth, and hardly smooth. The bar is not so high, but this one misses it a bit.

Carl99Fan (187) - Suwanee, Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Pours a beautiful amber with minimal white head. Phenolic aroma. Victory is one of my favorite microbreweries and this did not disappoint. Tangy mouthfeel. A very enjoyable brew. Picked up rather early in the season and would recommend a few bottles while grilling. Unsure why this is limited to the winter season. Glad I live in Atlanta so I can enjoy on the deck while hovering over some burgers and dogs.

ChainGangGuy (4770) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear, reddish-brown body with a white head. Smell: Aroma of toasted malts with a bit of caramel and a light fruitiness. Taste: Bready maltiness with only a light caramel sweetness to it. Very, very light hint of roasted grain. Faint yeastiness. There’s a soft, tea-like bitterness on the dry, crisp finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Make no mistake, this beer may not be overly complex, but it is exceedingly drinkable, in every possible way. In fact, it’s the best Oktoberfest beer I’ve had all year (only two, as of writing this).

clear reddish/brown with a large creamy yellow head. aroma of biscuity malts and a touch of hops. flavors of toffee, toast, hops, and malt. medium bodied. nice toffee, biscuit finish. nothing spectacular, but a solid example of the style.

bu11zeye (12684) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a clear copper body with small yellowish beige head. Aroma of caramel, grain, grass, and light toastiness. Flavor of caramel malt, mild grassy hops, and some fruitness.
