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

Nice amber color, no head, not even any little bubbles looked flat. Aroma is weak, slightly malty maybe a little ripe fruit, kinda bananaish. Flavor is sort of malty with a bit of a nutty finish. Had this draft at Victory in the sampler. One of the weakest in the show.

Spice, cherry and bread on the nose. Taste has a nice bread cracker like finish w/some fruitiness. Super clean and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz. bottle. Slightly opaque golden color topped by a fairly active head that dissipates a bit quickly. Aroma is of bready malt with a faint touch of hay. Flavor is typical for the style, perhaps just a bit too sweet. The hops do appear more fully on the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel seems a little thin to me, but I’ve already been drinking winter seasonals this year! This is a pretty good O-fest, but I’ll stick with the German brewers for the best.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Growler pour over Thanksgiving. One of the better Victory beers I’ve had. A lovely balance of hops and malts with a pleasant nuttiness.

Pours an amber brown with a moderate white head. Aroma of caramel and cereal. Tastes of cereal, caramel, and spicy hops. Delicious beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours copper with a deep orange tint. Little off-white head that fizzles away pretty quickly. Not too much of a nose- a little malty, nutty and spicy. Medium body that is fairly smooth. Taste is like the nose with some sweet, caramel malts and a somewhat hoppy finish. Good for the style- thumbs up.
