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

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2003 Auburn color. Malty and sweet nose with a touch of leafy hops. Oily and sweet, the body had hints of nuts and a nice maltiness that ends lightly bitter. Not bad, certainly not great, not sure if I've ever had an octoberfest that I've loved.

Nice reddish color, looks alot like Killian’s red. Nice aroma, taste leaves much to be desired. Still not a bad effort, not great, but also not bad.

For once, my opinion abotu a Victory! beer is in line with others’. Overall, this beer seems incomplete. It looks nice--clear and reddish, although only an adequate head. As Phillybeer notes, there is not much character here. Predominately yeasty and malty, this beer could use a good dose of Ayinger. Rather disappointing.

Dissapointing...strange fruity/malt flavor didn’t appeal to me much. Not horrible - but still a letdown.

Nothing special about this one. A little malty, and for some reason a bit of fruit in there as well.

Not one of thier better efforts, have tried most of Victorys beers and this is sub-par. malty, fair hop spicyness, just not there?

A very mediocre beer and my least favorite of the 3 Victory beers I’ve tried so far. Starts by looking great in the glass - a great ruby red color. But at first whiff, it loses its appeal. Its aroma and flavor are primarily malty, but without character. A slight bitterness appears at the back of the tongue when you swallow it, but again, this bitterness is without character, and aside from this bitterness, the hop presence is just about nil.
