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

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle. Pours a medium red/orange with a good frothy head. Aromas of yeasts and malts. Caramel sweetness and malts all come through in the taste. A descent Oktoberfest.

joejames (471) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear dark amber. Quick one finger head, no real lacing with little retention. Aroma caramel and burnt sugar. Taste is mainly malty sweet, with just a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied, light carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of caramel, biscuit, tree nuts, grass and herbs. Not a bad fest beer.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Poured a copper amber with hues of gold as it’s shows off it’s exceptional clarity. Almost tan colored head of foam that fell to a nice ring and a film on top. Carbonation can be seen streaming up.

Nose is terrific. It is doughy malt, yeasty bread and herbal hops. Perfectly simple. The hops are earthy and give a nice perfume. The malt has a bit of sweetness to it. This beer is decoction brewed.

Taste is firm and and medium bodied with a bit of slickness to the mouthfeel. It’s crisp and it has nutty toasted grain. Lightly sweet bread and herbal earthy hops. Finishes semi dry and with plenty of malt flavor to linger in the aftertaste.

Victory has the habit of making clean and crisp brews that are sharp, meaning distinct and clear. That’s what this beer was. Clean, subtly sweet and earthy. It has abundant flavor and a palate that is ready for anything from burgers to pasta primavera.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle, pours a clear amber/copper body with off-white head. Lightly hopped aroma with bread and toasted malts. Taste is similar with some nuttiness and spices.

mribm (460) - Ocala, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2002
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.

Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Poured amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt and candy. Sweet caramel malt with some bitterness. Hint of fruit.

msojka (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2011
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.

leah2974 (453) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Tastes like a spice rack, medium bodied, malty with slight lager aftertaste. Very good. Very fall.

TomTron (452) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2011
From my Asheville, NC, beer log: On tap, malty sweet aroma. Tastes like a marzen, but nothing to distinguish this as standing out from others. Caramel malts and some slight bitterness up front, with a little bit of a watery finish.. Good but forgettable.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2010
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.
