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

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle. Amber colour with a tan head. The aroma is caramel, malt and a bit of rye bread, the taste is thin with caramel and straw in a light body with a nise sweet finish.

HogTownHarry (6064) - 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.

blankboy (6018) - 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 (6011) - 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.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2010
9/3/10. On tap in a pint glass. Plain, grainy aroma with a grainy, almost chocolatey flavor. Not bad.

blipp (5974) - 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!)

Camons (5793) - 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
