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

SamTheBarrel (544) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2014
355ml brown bottle, pours cloudy copper colored with a small frothy beige head, that reduced quickly. Aroma of caramel, toffee, orange zest and bread. Flavours of caramel, toffee, orange zest, spices and bread. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Victory Festbier is great for the style, flavorful with plenty of malts, maybe slightly too sweet.

bubblehouse (634) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Nice taste. Good and malty but a little lacking in the aroma. Looks good and would drink again.

ContemplateBeer (1658) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Aroma: Toasty, bready malts with caramel glaze. Fairly spicy hop presence; sweet potatoes? Appearance: Dark copper pour with a foamy tan head that settles into a patchy ring, nice; natural looking carbonation. Flavor: Very malty as you’d expect, but almost something here reminiscent of a pumpkin beer. Not bad, but unexpected. Quite spicy, almost like some rye addition (surely not!) but that’s what keeps coming to mind; pumpernickel like. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Hmm. It’s a tasty beer, but something seems odd to me. Strange.

solidfunk (4888) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Good for what it is. Would be easy to drink in a stein, but then again I’ve had better marzens. Tasted this at a Giant and didn’t opt for a growler.

Pours an amber orange color with a white head. Sweet malt, toffee, biscuit and floral hop flavors and aroma. Medium light body and average carbonation. On the sweeter side. Sweet malt and toffee finish.

Transfer from BA review on 10-14-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a copper-orange color with a two finger off white head. The head fades over about 3 minutes to leave a lighter amount of lacing. Smell – Roasted malt are the heaviest of the aromas, although overall the aroma is rather light. With the roast are some lighter notes spice and herbal hop with some hay-like aromas mixed within. Taste – The taste begins very bready with a good deal of caramel sweetness up front. Some flavors of a sweeter toffee nature come to the tongue with some lighter fruit flavors which create a sweet taste. At the end a nice roast and light herbal flavor come and round out the sweeter flavors; leaving a pleasant sweeter herbal spiced flavor to linger on the tongue. Rather nice. Mouthfeel – For the abv. and style, the body of the beer is on the slightly creamier side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The creamier body if very nice for the sweet yet spicy and roasty flavors with the carbonation level making it very drinkable. Overall – Other than the lack luster aroma, this is one really fantastic and tasty beer. It is one I will definitely go to again. It has great flavors and a very nice feel.
