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

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2011
12 oz bottle, pours a dark golden color, no real head. Aroma when poured cold is very non-appealing and almost metallic-smelling. When warm, definitely a sweet maltiness is present with some vegetable charater. Taste is very subtle and light, just mildly sweet. Very little bitterness. Body is light with quickly fading carbonation, very mild sweet finish. Very objectionable when consumed cold but not bad at room temperature.

Malty, with the bread notes one would expect for the style. A little dried fruit as well. Not bad. Prost!

joejames (476) - 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.

Collint (475) - Sylva, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poures no head, smells like mostly honey. Decent carbonation with a small presence of alcohol. Color is orage red. Kinda taste watered down. I wanted more from a victory

ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2009
12 oz bottle served in a clear pint glass. Pour was a clear gold with a pillowy, white head. Nose is a light sour ale, with possibly, a Belgian character, and spices. Taste is the same, with light fruits, and a lingering sparkling finish. Of all the Oktoberfest beers I’ve tried, this is the farthest from the norm. Not terrible, but again, a mediocre Micro.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Sampled at the Newtown Brewfest from the tap. Amber color with thin head. Aroma of sweet malts and a touch of hops. Flavor was sweet with caramel malts, a bit of honey and a slightly bitter hop finish. Not bad, but not too exciting.

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.

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.

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.
