3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear brown and red tinged amber with a fat white that is nice and foamy. Visibly carbonated . No lacing and head fades to nothing. Aroma is pungent grassy noble hops and bready malts. Taste is very hop forward with far less caramel malt flavor than most oktoberfest beers. Still a nice malt backbone - but more bready than sweet. Applause for a different take on the style.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the bottle with a nice creamy head which quickly dissipated and left no lacing. Lots of malt flavor but this wasn’t the worst Oktoberfest/Märzen that I’ve ever had, but it wasn’t the best either. I guess maybe I expect too much from Victory because they really brew some awesome beers.

Pour is an orange color with a quickly dissipating white head. Nose is of spices and nuts.Taste leaves something to be desired but similar to the nose.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tastes like a spice rack, medium bodied, malty with slight lager aftertaste. Very good. Very fall.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. First of the season for me, pours an amber hue. Not much going on with the aroma, a little malt some sweetness nothing overwhelming. The marzen is pretty standard, not great, but I’d drink it over sam adams and harpoon. A bit malty with a thin palate.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty, with the bread notes one would expect for the style. A little dried fruit as well. Not bad. Prost!

Solid Oktoberfest, a bit sweeter than most out there, definitely tastes more like a lager than most, some spice notes in there as well, nice beer for fall, nice version of the style....worth a try
