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

blankboy (6633) - 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 (6474) - 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.

jredmond (6385) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2007
12 oz bottle. Very malty and fruity. Not a big fan of this one. But worthy of another taste and a re-rate in the future.

TheAlum (6373) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2008
12 oz bottle from the singles rack at Binny’s (Orland Park, IL). Poured a dark hazed carmel color, small off white head. Malty nose with slight spice. Tate is similar, bready and biscuity w/ carmelized malt notes. Slight spice in the finish, light bodied, maybe even thin, but very sessionable. Cheers!

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Pours copper with a thin white head. smells of biscuits, caramel, some peppery hops, hints of citrus. Tastes of caramel, some nutty qualities and somewhat molassessy. Mouthfeel is a little thin but crisp with a decent bitter finish.

HogTownHarry (6302) - 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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Bottle pours a darker amber, large frothy white head, attractive lacing, with light carbonation.   Malts, grains, bready but moreso wet hay on the nose.   Smooth malty taste, lightly sweet.   Some oat flavor as well.   Decent body and mouthfeel.   Crisp finish, clean, with linger malt and biscuity flavors.   A decent Autumn offering.   Thanks goes out to pineypower for the trade!

PorterPounder (6292) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft, 12 oz bottle. Medium copper orangeish pour with little to no head. Aroma is faint, but what is there is earthy and sweet, kind of like fresh mushrooms. Flavor has some hints of caramel, a hint of ripening vegetables, and a bit of a roasty character underlying throughout. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Solid Oktoberfest.
