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

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub, BBE 11.07.2015. Aroma is rather malty and grainy with some sweet tones and hints of toffee. Flavour has vegetables, toffee, minerals, some goosebery bush and nettles. Thin and too much off-flavours here.

Ibrew2or3 (7777) - 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.

alexsdad06 (7749) - 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.

blipp (7603) - San Diego, California, 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!)

chriso (7513) - 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.

Ughsmash (7465) - 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.

b3shine (7403) - Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent deep gold with white lacing. Smells of malt and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

drowland (7375) - 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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with some earthy graininess. Body is thin, semi-sweet, musty and dry. Could use a touch more hops and some more defined maltiness.

after4ever (7061) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2011
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.
