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

DuffMan (7828) - 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.

Camons (7508) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle @ Timbers, Denver. Pours amber with a creamy offwhite head. Aroma of malt, caramel, nuts, grass. Taste is sweet with malt, caramel, nuts, chocolate, followed by a good grassy hoppyness that balances it well. Medium body, soft carbonation. 110312

sebletitje (7498) - 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.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2006
Bottle, courtesy of Jim Busch, July 2006. Not one of my favourite Victory beers, but this isn’t really one of my favourite styles. Golden colour. There’s a good depth of toasty, bready malt here and hints of grassy hop. Mellow mouthfeel. In other words much as you’d expect from an Oktoberfest. So pretty authentic but not entirely to my taste.

marcus (7453) - 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.

olio (7426) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (7420) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Courtesy of Sea Bass. Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. The aroma is sweet lager type malts, rich Munich grainy malts, moderate roasted malts and corn. The taste is rich maltiness with Munich malts, caramel, caraMunich, biscuit and some nuttiness. Wow, great malty brew.

phaleslu (7419) - 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.

Ughsmash (7353) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Bottled. Poured a nice shade of autumny orange with a quickly-receding cap of off-white head. Nose picked up floral hops and sweet caramel.. nothing groundbreaking and a little on the stale side. Caramel and toffee formed a nice flavor base that was accented by alcohol and floral hops. The body was too light and there was more apparent alcohol than there should have been... Decent overall, but certainly not the best O’fest.
