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. translucent copper body with a small white head. aroma is full of rye bread, cereal, and caramel. starts out fairly hoppy, though it’s not overwhelming for the style, bready malt flavours. tasty stuff.

Candied malt aroma, orange hue, good sized custard head. Distinctive malt flavour, good hops also. Nicely balanced, pleasantly sweet, some breadiness too. Fairly good. Thanks mds.

This is the best oktoberfest I have ever tried. So smooth and tasty that no other beer of this style can come close to matching it! From the time the first wisps of aroma hit your nose to the last drop at the bottom of the glass, I was in beer heaven. Wonderful, wonderful beer!

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured clear amber with basically no head. Aroma of pumpkin, vague slightly sour malt, pretty mild. Taste is a bit harsh, grain, stale hops, some light roast malt - there’s almost a hint of orange juice behind this one - it’s actually quite quenching, in a watery, nicely vegetal, flat way. The weakest Victory I’ve yet had, but still not bad.

Bottle. I love Octoberfests, and this is one of my favorites. Nice amber pour with small head that dissipated quickly. The mouthfeel is very smooth and has just a touch of mild sweetness to it. I’d have no problem drinking this again.

Sammy (8850) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2005
Pours little leasting fizzy head. peach colour. Initially quenching and fruity but soon strong carbonation overwhelms and burns, and sugary sweet finish it doesn’t work for me.

thegreenrooster (3269) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 12, 2005
Pour is a copper with a white head. Aroma is malt and that’s about it. Flavor is weak and watery. No hops or malts show up anywhere. A pretty poor offering from a good brewer

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours clear amber body with medium bubbly off white head. Sweet malt aroma. Light bitter malt, metallic flavor and smooth, thin, watery palate. Not real impressive.

BCAR (221) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2005
More of a traditional marzen, albeit not their best effort. A little bland. Light sweetness with malt presence. Finishes with some off-bitterness.

On tap at Victory. Pours a translucent amber with no head. Aroma of caramel and sweet malts. Flavor is malts with some hops to provide some bitterness.
