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

Amber in color with no head. SAmells of roasted malts and some hops. Medium body with roasted malt flavors. Clean malty finish.

Pours a nice amber, thin head. Interesting flavor, more flavor than a lot of Oktoberfest beers. Decent beer.

Very decent Lager. One of the better Oktoberbest beers (not my favorite styles). I don’t understand some of the critiques here regarding hops. Why would a Lager be hoppy? It wouldn’t.

this beer is surprisingly average. I’m a big fan of Victory but this beer is weak. Its a bit more tart than I feel a marzen should be - I like them of the sweet side. It does have a nice aftertaste and a nice dark amber look. But all in all it average.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Faint, sweet, malty aroma. Pours amber with thin amber/white head. Semi sweet malty flavor with nicely balanced hops throughout. Smooth, clean, malty finish. Another great beer from Victory.

Very decent marzen beer. Highly drinkable and deeply malted. This not a hopped up dark lager, rather more of a malted smooth drinker. Not too sweet.

on tap-pours a thin white head with copper color and effervescence. Aroma is faint sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, hops with some bite. Slightly flat aftertaste. OK carbonation.

A nice bodied copper color beer, this one was enjoyable for the summertime. Lacing was very nice and the aroma hard to pick up. Flavor was definitely dominated by the malts (caramel) with some hop action going on in the background. Refreshing beer with a decent body, but my bottle experience was noticeably not as good as the draft, which just had a fresher and crisper taste to it.

12 oz bottle thanks to pineypower. Poured golden amber with a smallish head that faded to nothing. Aromas were very faint. Some maltiness but not much. Flavors were better with all that classic oktoberfest malts coming through. Hops were faint and left me with malt in the aftertaste after the hop bite faded. Not my favorite. Takes a lot to impress me in this style
