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

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2004 Working my way through 12 different Octoberfest’s, this is easily the best one so far. Medium aroma, but great amber color. Smooth flavor with a nice pepper finish, but no overbearing aftertaste. Highly recommended if you can get it in your area.

This is the second oktoberfest Ive had in a row and my thoughts havent changed much. This beer has very subtle spices with high carbonation. I love the victory brewery, but this is definitely not one of the highlights. The style of this beer is just very flat with nothing setting it apart. Very uncharacteristic of victory. I have the highest of expectations for this brewery and I would recommend trying their other styles far before coming to this one.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Pours light orange with a white head that dissipated quickly leaving no lacing. Malty oktoberfest aroma. Taste is rather thin with very subtle fruit undertones. Smooth and very drinkable, but lacking in depth or character.

On tap at the 2004 Kennett Square BF. Poured a cloudy, medium amber color with a off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel. Yeast also present in the smell. Thinner body.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Draft at Capital Ale House Innsbrook. Bronzed amber body. Aroma is rich and malty with a pleasant caramel hint. Mild bread notes as well. Taste is malty with splashes of caramel and light bready notes. Mouthfeel is somewhat full with strong carbonation. Light chewiness. Finish is more strong malt notes, light caramel and light toasted bread notes (maybe pumpernickel).

Tap @ Victory. Clear amber/copper w small off white head that fell quick, no lace. Nose was light. Flavor was nice lt/med roasted amber malt w min hops. Just slightly into med bodied category. OK but not my style. Rather mundane. Are you sure this would fly in Germany?

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Clear copper color with a small white head. Aroma is mainly malt. Tastes quite dry. Nice malt flavor with a touch of hop bitterness. A bit thin bodied but still a solid beer.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - SEP 30, 2004
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. "Enjoy by Dec 31, 04" on front label. Very fresh then. I enjoy fresh beer, especially good, fresh beer. Poured out a reddish, dark copper color with a minimal white, sticky head. It faded back to a sticky lacing down the sides of the glass. Excellent clarity. Aromas are of slightly sulphurous yeasts, malts, nuttiness, slight Tootsie Roll aromas as well. Tastes are of fresh malts, slight nuttiness, some vanilla, yeasty pretzels, and sweet caramel malts as well. Hops are subdued in both aromas and flavors. Just enough bitterness to slightly counteract the sweetness of the malts. Rich mouthfeel, but not too thick. Plenty of chewy malts to satisfy your thirst/hunger. Almost a meal in a glass. One of the best Octoberfests I’ve had this season.
