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

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2006
12 oz bottle. Deep orange colour, crystal clear with no head at all. Lovely deep rich maltiness. Munich malt and some decocted malitness are on display. Flavour shows a kiss of floral hops, lingering light breadiness. Not a lot of complexity, but this is all about being easy to drink… something it accomplishes well.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Pours orange-red with white head, aroma has notes of nuts, caramel, and some earth. Taste is a bit weak and muddled, but has notes of nuts and earth, slight spice. Not bad, just not my style.

DuffMan (9025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
Clear amber, moderate white head. Straighforward caramel malt aroma and flavour, with a hint of fruit (cherries?). Surprisingly average, coming from Victory.

phaleslu (9019) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a deep clear orange color with a small off-white head. Notes of caramel, toast, nuts, straw, spice, and dried leaves. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Really solid. The flavors and aromas really come through in this one, whereas other marzens can be a bit bland. Best of the style I’ve had in quite some time, probably the best American one. Ignore the Swede two spots before me on this one.

3fourths (9018) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Clear copper colored body with almost no head formation at all. Smells of sticky, sweet maple and sweet white corn, with a heavily sweet caramel and caramel corn note as well. Some faint cherry wood also shows up at times. Low carbonation, slick and oily, with flavors of semi-sweet maple malt and light plum and cedar. Medium dryness in the finish. Ok to below average.

sebletitje (8957) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2008
Courtesy of damienblack. Pours orange/copper, off white head. Aroma and taste, some nice hops, caramel malts, possible notes of corn giving a sweet aroma. Aftertaste of light hop bitterness. Nice risp finish, refreshing and easy to drink.

olio (8882) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2014
355 ml bottle @ Naamat.
Pours amber color with a small head. Some berries and malts on the nose. Malts, berries, toffee and faint earthy notes on the flavor. Some really weird notes here, don’t like it.

marcus (8809) - 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.

alexsdad06 (8434) - Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours pours a slightly hazy dark golden amber with a medium sized foamy off white head. The aroma has toasted malt, hints of caramel with mild sweetness. The flavor is lightly toasted caramel malts, slightly nutty, hints of hops but this is definitely malt forward. Medium bodied, pretty good Octoberfest.

[2097-20090419] 12floz bottle. Vegetable grains aroma. Slightly hazy, golden amber body with quick creamy off-white bubbles. Grainy vegetable flavour has toasted malt. Medium body. Average.
