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

Strong yeast profile...bready and sour...but also some fairly sweet caramel malt going on too. A bit thin in texture and a little watered-down in mouthfeel, but OK.

This pours more orange than copper with a tiny head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is lagered with spices, milky notes and a hint of honey. Flavor starts sugary sweet & sour then moves to bitter & spicy, running a full gamut of flavors. OK for the style, but a little souring to the stomach.

On tap at Brewery. A fine octoberfest...even in January. Darker amber color. Not the best beer, but a good session.

blankboy (7072) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly amber with an average size off-white head. Sweet aroma and flavour of grain, some fruit, malt and mild, slightly stale hops. Light bodied and bland. Tastes like a Lager and for a Victory beer it’s quite dissapointing. Just O.K.

My first thought was "Oooh...this is pretty." Looked like iced tea and had a very weak aroma. For mouthfeel, again ice tea. I was hopeful when it was sour on the tip of my tongue, but overall it was bland.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Pours a clear orangey bronze color with tin 1/4 inch head that quickly disappears. The very thin ring that’s left behind leaves only minimal lacing. Smell; nice bread dough and caramel maltiness with a mild herbal almost spicy aroma. Nice, but not as good as I was expecting. Taste; pretty much follows it’s aroma. It has a solid caramel malt presence, and a little bit of the spiciness makes an appearance. There’s also a slight hop bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with fairly low carbonation. This is not the best O-fest by any means, but it’s still a decent stab at the style.

A pretty average okt-fest. Pours a muted red. Kind of tastes a bit oily ,but feels like water?

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 4, 2006
12 oz bottle, best before date Dec 12. As it is Jan 4th, this is past it’s date, but not by much. Pours a orange color with decent off white head. No lacing. Nose is of fresh bread, a tad yeasty. Flavor is malty, with a bit of the yeast shown in the nose. Some caramel sweetness. Slightly sticky finish, with a wisp of bitter left behind. A pretty decent lager, but a fest it is not. Nice for a session or while watching a game.

thehinge (290) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Aroma has some definite breadiness to it. The pour is a honey color with a small white head. Has a malty, slightly sour taste to it. Nothing special

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2005
fresh bread/doughy aroma. amber color, large sea foam head. tastes a bit like dough too, slightly sweet/sour. Pretty light on the flavor and palate, thin, somewhat watery. very easy finish. quite smooth, could drink this very fast.
