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

Thanks Pabobcat for the brew. Copper hue with a frothy tan head and good lace. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel, nuts, dark bread, slighty piney hops, earthy yeast and minor spice. Smooth and balanced taste with a of toasted malt and aromatic hop tone. Some fruitiness and spice also detected. Thin to medium-bodied with a soft mouthfeel. A good fest beer but nothing outstanding.

A very enjoyable beer - nothing exceptional but well balanced and smooth. Flavor is dominated by malt - with hints of toasted caramel. A slight hop follow, but not much bitterness to speak of.

This big V beer was sent to me by jgb9348, Thanks Brow!
Magnificent, A majestic sunset of beauty…. Amber in color with a colossal pillow of tan head, a masterpiece! The aroma is sweet and malty, smells of warm apple butter on toast. The flavor is slightly nutty, quit fruity, apples and pears, hints toffee, some herbal notes as well, very full in flavor and aroma. This is a terrific Octoberfest, light on the palate but absolutely terrific.
Thank You Jeremy!

Not Victory's best, but incredibly smooth. Amber-colored, offwhite head. Not much initial flavor but a nice malty/bready flavor on the end. Like I said, not Victory's best by a long shot, but It is pretty enjoyable.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Slightly red-tinged amber, big white head that diminishes fairly quickly, and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is very light, some maltiness but not much else. Flavor is also fairly light, some caramel and other malt sweetness, and maybe a minimal hop hit at the end. Body is medium at best, mild carbonation, drinks easily, but is noting spectacular.

Pours a clear orangy color with a robust light yellow head. Start is very smooth without much going on. End has a mild sweetness to it, and some mild hoppiness. The palate is perfect for this beer, but the beer itself is soft of a downer. Granted, the style isn't a very complex style. A very drinkable beer that goes down easy, although not too complex.

Dorwart (2341) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Decent creamy, off-white head with good carbonation. Nice medium amber red in color. Malty aroma with a hint of fruit and hops. Flavor is very malty/biscuity with a smooth flavor. Finish has some hops presence but is rather coating in the mouth which hides some of the more subtle flavors. A decent brew but Victory has some much better.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Nice light copper/orange color with small white head. No hops in aroma or taste, with only slight bitterness. Very malty all around. Munich and maybe some victory or toasted malt in the taste. Medium body. Im not a huge fan of oktoberfest/marzen, but for the style, I think it is damn good. Very smooth and easy to drink.

Copper colored with a small head and practically no lacing. Fruity, floral aroma. Smooth, malty taste with little bite in the finish.

Beautiful amber colored octoberfest. Tastes good. Smooth and clean. Does not have a head retention though.
