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

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Poured orange/copper with a massive beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a decent caramel malt flavor with some light hop bitterness. It’s fairly tasty, but the malt is too thin.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Bottle pours a darker amber, large frothy white head, attractive lacing, with light carbonation.   Malts, grains, bready but moreso wet hay on the nose.   Smooth malty taste, lightly sweet.   Some oat flavor as well.   Decent body and mouthfeel.   Crisp finish, clean, with linger malt and biscuity flavors.   A decent Autumn offering.   Thanks goes out to pineypower for the trade!

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of dried mango. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. A fair rendition. A little rough and simple, but ok.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured clear amber with basically no head. Aroma of pumpkin, vague slightly sour malt, pretty mild. Taste is a bit harsh, grain, stale hops, some light roast malt - there’s almost a hint of orange juice behind this one - it’s actually quite quenching, in a watery, nicely vegetal, flat way. The weakest Victory I’ve yet had, but still not bad.
