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

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - SEP 16, 2007
poured a tarnished copper with slight hay tinge around the edges, almost zero head that completely vanished despite a relatively vigorous pour. Nose mostly of caramel, some nuts, irony malts, thin on the palate, typical festbier cereal flavor, hops show up lacklusterly in the clean lager finish both in bitterness and slight hay taste. Really underwhelming for a typically decent brewery.

Sampler at the brew pub. Clear amber body with thin off-white head. Taste of flowers and light fruits with a light bitterness in the finish.

joejames (388) - 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.

For once, my opinion abotu a Victory! beer is in line with others’. Overall, this beer seems incomplete. It looks nice--clear and reddish, although only an adequate head. As Phillybeer notes, there is not much character here. Predominately yeasty and malty, this beer could use a good dose of Ayinger. Rather disappointing.

Poured a nic copper but with minimal head and no retention. Aromas of Carmel malts, wet bread. Sweet on the nose and taste. A bit thin in the mouth. Taste is bready as is the finish. Typical of the style.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Pours a clear orangey bronze color with tin 1/4 inch head that quickly disappears. The very thin ring that’s left behind leaves only minimal lacing. Smell; nice bread dough and caramel maltiness with a mild herbal almost spicy aroma. Nice, but not as good as I was expecting. Taste; pretty much follows it’s aroma. It has a solid caramel malt presence, and a little bit of the spiciness makes an appearance. There’s also a slight hop bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with fairly low carbonation. This is not the best O-fest by any means, but it’s still a decent stab at the style.
