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

Bottle. Pours an amber brown with a thin head. Mild, fairly non-descript aroma of caramel malts, some pilsener hops, and a fair amount of yeast. The flavor is surprisingly bready, with all of the aroma characteristics, and a sort of metallic aftertaste. Victory is usually quite solid, but this is not a particularly impressive Marzen.

Bottle--thanks willblake! Dark amber to copper colored with a smallish head of large beading, faded very quickly. Nose has malt, some acarmel and a slight bit of hop bittering. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, caramel and malt with a bit of nectarine maybe in the front, a mild hop back to it. Finish is fairly sweet with hops clinging at the end.

This was alright, copper orange colors. Malt all the way through, very little hops in aroma or taste. light bodies. it was smooth but just tasted of german malts and was one dimensional.

Pours a dark gold to brown color with a small white head. No real distinct aroma. Rich taste and well balanced. Medium, smooth body with light carbonation. Not a fan of Oktoberfest fan and this one hasn’t changed my mind.

ON tap at Hop Angel. This beer was very clear. Copper hue, aroma of caramel malt and slight hops. The taste is lightly malty, very easy to drink, smooth. A decent Marzan.

Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2010
12 oz Bottle -- Pours orange-amber with a medium light khaki head. Aromas of roasted malt, squash, caramel, and hops. More hops present than other Oktoberfest beers but is not bitter. Soft and smooth mouth-feel yet feels very rich. Great malt character with a good balance.

Brewdork (205) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured into dimpled mug. Pours a remarkable amber color with a generous tan head. Slightly sweet malty bread aroma with notes of caramel. Nutty and caramel flavors up front with slight hoppy spiciness on the tail end. Very smooth and drinkable, as the style demands. I could see myself drinking a bootfull of this.

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Bottle. Slight malty aroma. Poured a copper brown with a white head that dissipated after a couple minutes. Some lacing and sheeting on the glass. Really like the flavor. Pretty malty, with some sweetness and nutmeg, with a little orange citrus flavor. Hard to detect any hops bitterness. Very smooth mouthfeel and drinkability.

zootfinster (202) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2007
A mildly malty, overly hoppy, highly carbonated, not very tasty beer. When I finish what I bought that’s the end of this beer. There certainly are worse brews but there a a whole lot better
