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

9/3/10. On tap in a pint glass. Plain, grainy aroma with a grainy, almost chocolatey flavor. Not bad.

Draft at ncbc. Pours a clear dark amber with a loose creamy tan head. Mild artichokey nose, mixed with old wet leaves and stale tobacco. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Artichoke and old wet leaves on the mid palate. Neutral finish.

blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly amber with an average size off-white head. Sweet aroma and flavour of grain, some fruit, malt and mild, slightly stale hops. Light bodied and bland. Tastes like a Lager and for a Victory beer it’s quite dissapointing. Just O.K.

BBB63 (5740) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Thanks Pabobcat for the brew. Copper hue with a frothy tan head and good lace. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel, nuts, dark bread, slighty piney hops, earthy yeast and minor spice. Smooth and balanced taste with a of toasted malt and aromatic hop tone. Some fruitiness and spice also detected. Thin to medium-bodied with a soft mouthfeel. A good fest beer but nothing outstanding.

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, 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.

blipp (5646) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Color is amber with a thin and quickly vanishing off white head. Aroma is very light, some caramel, maybe nutty malts, and a little bit of spice. Palate: very easy to drink but maybe a little to watery and carbonated. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, malt and light spice, nothing that leaves much of an impression. Overall this is not a very complex beer. However, is is very easy drinking and pretty cheap, so I’ll probably end up getting it again. (yay! first rating!)

BVery (5606) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2009
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a foamy white head. Malt bomb. Aroma of caramel, bread, and malt. Taste is very malty. Tiny bit of hop poking through.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle from Hackomal over on the other site. Thanks! Pours bright golden amber with a thin head. The aroma is sweet and toasty with hints of earthy hops. Caramel, toast with a earthy grass/peppery finish. Pretty true to style IMO.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a thin off white head. Malty sweet caramel and cristal malts, a bit thin with some lagered sweetness and a bitter carrot finish. Decent for a marzen.
