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

Had it on tap. Good to have Märzens back again. It’s a sweet, malty example. Very tasty, great fall beer.

From Growler. Bought @ Victory Brewing. Pours nice golden copper color. Nice thick foamy white head, that nicely laced the glass half way down. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavor is malty, with some caramel hints for sweetness, with a touch of grassy hop flavor comes through in the back. Slight spice taste. Nice balance. Could easily have a couple of these. Full bodied. Thick mouthfeel. Carbonation just right.

Clear amber pour with a tan head. Smells of bread and sweet malt. Taste includes biscuit and a little caramel. Finishes with a slightly metallic aftertaste. Pretty much what you would expect for a Märzen.

Not a bad october. Good malty flavors decent hop undertones. Only negative is how heavy this brew is. It really fills you up.

I’ve found some of victory’s beers to be a little to thin for the syle before, but I think that actually works for them here. Too often american octoberfests are too malty, from excess munich and crystal malts, to the point where they are hard to drink. This one is orange-amber, small white head. Very smooth malty flavor, appropriately hopped. Easy drinking and enjoyable with a smooth finish. Tastes like what I would expect a good german O-fest that’s still fresh would taste like.

12 oz. Bottle @ Dchmela’s house. Thanks Dave. Merry Christmas. Great deep golden pour almost copper like. Nice fluffy head out of this bottle. Fresh crisp lightly bitter. Grassy but in a great way. Enjoy!

Bottle poured into the WABL tankard I got in the mail today to start Oktoberfest a little early I guess. Pours clear copper/orange with a small bubbly off-white head. Caramel, fresh grain, yeasty bread, a little bit of earth and grass. Carbonated.

On tap at Victory. Nothing stands out too much about it. Solid Octoberfest, but nothing spectacular. Nothing to write home about, but you can’t blame a great brewery for making a good version of a mediocre style.

aroma is grassy with honey and caramel apparent as well,very mild pumpkin like spice ...appearance is pleasant enough clear orange red brown color white head that does not last except for a thin white ring..taste is roasty-ish malts honey and grassy hops with a distinct wheat flavor as well..palate is smooth on the bottom tingly and bitter up top... an interesting and flavorful oktoberfest beer I think one of the better ones too neither the malty or bitter flavors are subdued

Copper brown pour with tan head. Roasted caramel malt aroma. Creamy smooth malty mouth feel and flavor. Nice amount of hops bitterness; just to take the edge off the sweet malt flavors. Nice rich Oktoberfest lager.
