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

I seldom by bottles of Victory except V12 because the beer at the brewery is just amazing compared and this is no different. In the bottle it is just average,but at that little slice of heaven on Acorn Lane it is quite good. Dark wityh sweet caramel malt flavors.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Amber beauty of a beer. Awesome malty nose with the promised caramel-nut-malt heaven-on-the-tongue. Perfect tease of a bitter end. I think this is the closest to perfect I’ve found.

Draft at Victory - Amber colored. Medium malt characteristic with light hop flavoring. Incredibly smooth and not overly complex.

Clear orange-copper color, nice white foamy head. Has a light flowery and malty caremel aromas, sweet, balanced malts and clean tasting, light body, a little thin semi-watery mouthfeel, this is a decent oktoberfest, but nothing special.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 This is a very smooth Octoberfest, even though it's quite thin-bodied. Medium amber body, Aroma of Vanilla and honey. Tastes like a "Light" beer, but yet it is still drinkable. I am lowering my rating in the re-rate because it just doesn't have enough flavor - especially for a Victory beer!

Not much head, but very high carbonation, and a burnt orange color. I can’t sense much in the aroma, maybe a little yeasty presence. I expected this to be a little more malty, but I can deal with that. The flavors are very subtle, but numerous. It tastes like liquid wheat bread with a little bit of honey on top. There even seems to be a hint on caramel in the mix. The finish is smooth and somewhat wheaty. Not the greatest of Victory’s products, but still quite good.

Pours with a substantial head. Glowing orange/amber color (rather eerie), light in body and flavor. Good malt presence, hint of caramel, but mostly an average concoction.

This beer poured into the glass a amber/copper/orange color and was very clear, very bright, seemed to glow with the light. The head had an orange tint to its big foamy white mound. The aroma was of herbs, hops, bread (yeasty) malt and some hints of alcohol near the end, slight. The taste was of roasted bread malt, herbs, hops, caramel seemed to pick up near the middle of the tongue then ends with the nutty malt and slightly bitter hops flavor. A good example of this style of fest beer.

Another good beer from these guys. Not as creative as some others but solid still.

A delicious rendition, brought to me courtesy Urbnhautebourg. Sweet, but only just so, a bit toasty caramel, a touch of hops at the close. Wonderful, and as Britt has said in the forum, very very similar to Dominion’s Octoberfest.
