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

On tap at Victory. Pours out a slightly red hued amber with a medium sized foamy head. A very smooth beer with a nice malty flavor with a little hop bitterness. Overall this is an awesome Oktoberfest.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Caramel raisin bread (must have bread on the brain rating these), sensuous aroma. Straight up O-fest, a tad too sticky for me but still enjoyable. Hints of vanilla in the finish.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 Growler from the brewery. Nice creamy head of off white over a deep amber colored clear body. Nice clean malt aroma. The flavor is proper for the style, malty, little hop presence and a clean finish. Very nice. Re-rate 10/07 Bottle 7/4/7/3/14

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2004 Draft @ brewery. Kind of a dark copper color with a small head. Mild bitter hop aroma and not much else. Taste has a nice malt flavor to it with a touch of bitterness if you reach down for it. A bit thin bodied but ok stuff. The bottle version has a really powerful astringent aroma. taste is much of the same though.

pivo (2561) - GERMANY - JUL 18, 2004
TAP: Sweet honey nose. Beautiful amber color with a tight head. Cherry and sugary malt. Very sweet. Light toasted end leaves a deposit of sweetness on the lips. Clean palate and a fairly heavy body. Impressive lager for this side of the puddle.

Orange/amber body, small off-white head. Mildly malty aroma and flavor. Slight bit of a hoppy bite towards the end but not too much going on here. Marzens typical dissapoint me and this one is nol exception.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2004
(sample @ brewery) orange amber color, very clear, with a long-lasting if small head. nose is primarily sweet and malty, with a mild toast underneath. flavor is malty and sweet, and rather heavy. beer is definately balanced toward the malt, and though not that heavy a body, still somewhat cloying.

egajdzis (5305) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Poured a copper color with a small off white head and left some lacing on the glass. Caramel malt aroma. Light bitterness, and a sweet smooth malt taste. Rather watery, but also light and refreshing.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2004
Creamy, bubbling, humdinger head; a perfect darkish amber color. Aroma: fresh, clean, floral, nuts, buttery and sweet, vanilla, bananas, soft spices. Little hops, heavy with malt. Incredibly sweet on the tongue, long and lovely finish. A tasty sizzle on the palate, very flavorful, and an unusually characterful lager. One of the more subtle, but satisfying Oktoberfests I've ever enjoyed.
