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

Bottle--thanks willblake! Dark amber to copper colored with a smallish head of large beading, faded very quickly. Nose has malt, some acarmel and a slight bit of hop bittering. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, caramel and malt with a bit of nectarine maybe in the front, a mild hop back to it. Finish is fairly sweet with hops clinging at the end.

Bottle pours a darker amber, large frothy white head, attractive lacing, with light carbonation.   Malts, grains, bready but moreso wet hay on the nose.   Smooth malty taste, lightly sweet.   Some oat flavor as well.   Decent body and mouthfeel.   Crisp finish, clean, with linger malt and biscuity flavors.   A decent Autumn offering.   Thanks goes out to pineypower for the trade!

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2004 2004 bottle. Pours a red burgundy, dark cherry color, mostly clear with a small white head, mostly disipating, obviously fiiltered. Aroma of cherries, big yeast notes, light honey notes and slight bread dough. Also a touch of metal. Flavor is very fruity at the starrt with a huge yeastiness. I like the yeastiness but I’d like to see more fresh hops, it’s alot of light pale malts with a touch of crystal. Good, but reminds me too much of weyerbacher autumnfest, were they coordinating the brewing of these beers?? Could be (just kidding).

This was an outstanding Oktoberfest and one of the best in the style that I have ever had. Nice clean aroma and taste, and a wonderful finish. The guys at Victory sure know how to brew a great beer. Highly recommended.

mildly sweet with caramel notes in aroma and flavor. Orange body, no head which was kind of a let down.

Orange clear pour with very small amount of head. Spicy aroma. Pretty decent spicy flavor. Pretty good, nothing special.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Clear copper with a short head and not much lacing. Doesn’t seem very carbonated, but it was giving me a gassy full feeling. Toasty toffee, moderately sweet, very short hop presence. Tastes like Fall.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Somewhat boring aroma to this. Theres a bit of malt to it, but thing that stands above the crowd. The appearance is a nice reddish copper color and a thin head to it. The flavor isnt too special also. Rather dissapointing for the trusty folks at Victory, but still not a horrible brew.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Clear orange color with a large off-white head that dissipated quickly. Spicy nutmeg, corriander, yeast and malt aroma. Corriander, nutmeg, bread, malt and floral hops flavors. Fairly thin watery feel with a lightly dry finish.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Clear amber color with a large off-white head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was full of spices (nutmeg?) and yeasty/bready tones...with a slightly sour character in the background. The flavor was nice and sweet...spices (again, nutmeg), yeast/bread, and a floral character. The feel was slightly watery/thin, with a medium dry finish.
