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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
aromas of slight noble hop spice, malts, and slight creamy yeast. Tastes of malt with some indeterminate grain aspect hiding underneath that leaves a sort of biscuit-like aftertaste in the mouth. crisp slightly hoppy finish leaves the palate clean.

The first lager I’ve had in a while, and certainly not a disappointment. Victory does a good lager. Muted fruit flavors, like grapes, and maybe even a little smokiness. Medium to light body, very creamy texture, fine bubbles, leaves a little sticky dry on the palate. Hops edging towards a certain sourness, but definitely making a positive appearance.
