2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle-pours orange with a small off/white whispy eggshel head. grainy, sweet toasted malt aroma with a big husky grain tone. some earthy flavors with some caramel sweetness, toasted bread, and some grain husks once again. body is fairly round for the style. finish is earthy, leafy, lightly bitter and sweet grain husks. not bad, but not a great ofest.

Bottle. Pours light copper with a minimal head. Flat and very light in flavor, almost watery. Not a typical Victory, but definately a loss.

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!
