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

Victory Festbier is a decent Oktoberfest style but there are better options. Nice pour and malty aroma with the hint of hops. Color is a dark. Taste is a bit too sweet with a noticeable alcohol bite. Festbier is a middle of pack Autumn selection -- not bad but nothing to seek out either.

trapped (906) - New York City, TURKEY - DEC 22, 2014
Draught. Copper red with small off white foamy head, doughy aroma, sour taste with a hint of grapefruit, low carbonation, long sour finish. Interesting oktoberfest with a different twist.

Tide (1882) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle at bar. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, toffee, hops and malts. Bitter finish with citrus, hops and malts. Decent brew, although a bit messy.

mjs (4811) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2014
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BB 11 Jul 2015, at Maltainen Riekko, 20141121) The beer poured brown and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, malts and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with high carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, sugary sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, malty and bitter. A too sweet interpretation of an Oktoberfestbier.

laiti (5978) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub, BBE 11.07.2015. Aroma is rather malty and grainy with some sweet tones and hints of toffee. Flavour has vegetables, toffee, minerals, some goosebery bush and nettles. Thin and too much off-flavours here.

stefannilssons (1496) - SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2014
Det här var en juste öl, för sin stil. Smaken var kraftfull med toner av malt, plommon och torkat gräs, kroppen var okej och balansen likaså men ölen hade en liten fadd känsla, tyvärr.

Vighals (1411) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
Orange i fargen med lavt beige skum. Honning, brunt sukker og trevirke. Søtlig og litt syrlig i smaken. Medium kullsyre. Kort

monkeychugg55 (910) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Deep amber with a small white head. The aroma is a strong mix of bread dough and caramel. Clean flavor with a balanced finish that lends a bit of lingering caramel. Somewhat thin for the style.

AndresTM (322) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 30, 2014
Nutty, slightly bready aroma with milld, floral hops and some malted grain. It pours a light mahogany without much of a head. The mouthfeel is more vigorous than the beer visually portends. The taste is gentle, nutty malts and a nice hop bitterness. Nice and sessionable.
