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

12oz bottle. Reddish tea-like appearance with an orange hue; medium off-white head with good retention and lacing. Nose is very sweet, showing grapes and candy sugar. Mouthfeel shows crisp carbonation, tea-like dryness, plenty of candy sugar, floral hops, and slightly vegetal (a fact my fiance won’t shut up about - kudos to 1FastSTi for pegging it as corn; she’s now appeased). Light-to-medium finish. This is decent, but would earn a few points without the vegetal aspect.

Clear and light brown, plain in the glass. Very bready aromas with some light caramel. Lots of carbonation/gas on the palate. Kind of thin. Caramel presence and some bready elements, but nothing too exciting. There are many better beers from the good folks at Victory.

Headbanger (3663) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2006
12oz bottle-Aroma of malt on an amber body with a white head that dissipated quickly. A malty taste with caramel and toffee on the back end. Nice tasting brew.

Tap: Pours a mild amber color. Flavor is of some sweet malts with a bit of alcohol and a little bit of hops. This is not a very complex, flavorful, or very good marzen.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 I liked this stuff alot. I like mostly malt stuff. There are some hops in there, not too much. Its very easy to drink. Goes flat quickly so drink it fast...

Not my favorite Victory brew by a long shot, but not a bad marzen. Very similar to the Sam Adams O-fest, but with a bit less sweet maltiness and a bit more hops.

TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Pours a great copper orange with minimal head. Flavor is smooth up front, an even balance of subtle hops and full bodied malt. Body is smooth as well, making this thoroughly drinkable. Flavorable isn’t overly memorable, but it’s great while it lasts. I’m not a big oktoberfest/marzen fan, but this is nice.

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottled in a pint glass. A bit bitter, mild hops and malts. Transparent coppery color, thin head. A flavorful and enjoyable drinking beer.

1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Pours to one of the sexiest colors I’ve seen in a beer. It’s a glowing orange sunset. Tall frothy white head. The aroma has a malty spelt pasta thing going on with some corn silage. The flavor is corn silage up front with some nice crisp sweet corn on the finish. Perhaps some maple syrup and ultra toasty malts on the aftertaste. Decent. The palate is medium bodied and easy drinking. Drinkable but nothing really outstanding from the pack. The more I’ve been drinking it, the more it comes off as raw chocolate chip dough in the flavor.

Autumn in a glass, as a lot of these beers of this style are. Body is orange with red and brown, like a bag of leaves. Smell is faint spices, heavy malt. Decent flavor, actually a little heavy for the style. Malt throughout, could use a little dryness. Not a bad beer.
