4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is just an awesome Oktoberfest. Perfect amber color. Wonderfully quaffable. Goes down easy and really makes the start of autumn and the best season for beer a wonderful experience.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours an amber brown with a thin head. Mild, fairly non-descript aroma of caramel malts, some pilsener hops, and a fair amount of yeast. The flavor is surprisingly bready, with all of the aroma characteristics, and a sort of metallic aftertaste. Victory is usually quite solid, but this is not a particularly impressive Marzen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally reviewed: 10/9/09. Poured this into my pint. Pours a crystal clear copper with a thin off-white head on top. No lace whatsoever. Smells of caramelized malts, and fresh breads. Nothing standout.
The mouth on this one is a bit harsh. This is way overly carbonated. Hinders drinkability a bit. Fresh slight hoppy bite at the onset, but this finishes mellow and slightly sweet. I really like the aftertaste on this. Nice bready flavor going on. Not too bad of a beer here.

Bottle at Fosters cheese haus, nose is very sweet completely surprised me. Great mouth feel, loved the slightly sheath malty hoppy taste. Such a simple beer in general, its not trying so hard to be impressive and ends up being awesome.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours ruby with a small hue of a white head. Nose is very malt driven. Loads of caramel and dry biscuit. Works well. Taste is caramel dominated with light fruits lingering on the finish. Rather nice brew for its style

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 330ml from the local taphouse. Nice malty beer, with hoppy notes. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, with hints of cola and also herbs. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber pour with small off-white head. This is a smooth, friendly, malty brew with caramel overtones. The palate feel is excellent. Some subdued fruitiness lingers. While I’m usually a stout and porter guy, this brew pleases. Another victory for Victory.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber body with short head. Caramel in the aroma and in the taste, a little thin, easy drinking but the style doesn’t do a lot for me.

355ml bottle. A very deep amber orange colour with a great aroma packed full of maltiness with hints of butterscotch, vanilla and caramel.Thick in the mouth with good texture and body. Light on the palate and an all round goo beer.

Deep amber with almost no head. Aroma is some caramel malts, but somewhat weak. Taste is caramel, sweet malts, some dried fruits and a hint of hops. The beer is light to medium bodied and very crisp and refreshing.
