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

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 It slips down now that autumn is on the door. It simply does what it should.

njnut (418) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2015
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.

QuezXLV (415) - Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2010
I detect barrel in the aroma. Fizzy carbonation. Not too much body and kind of bland. I hate to just repeat what others have said, but I expected a better beer from this brewer.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Pours a clear copper with no head at all. Aroma is caramel malt and spice. Taste is nutty with carmel sweetness. Hop flavors and bitterness are almost nonexistent. Finish is tart orange peel, as others have noted.

12 oz bottle. Perhaps the best Oktoberfest. I have had this season. Just an awesome Oktoberfest. Perfect amber color. Definitely quaffable.

ScoWRee (408) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Pours golden with a nice thick, off white, foamy head. Aroma is fruity, hints of yeast. Taste is yeasty, lots of carbonation. Not much going on here. Is this realy an ’’Octoberfest’’ brew?

MarkBarnes (404) - Waterville, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Sept. 21, 2007; 12 oz. bottle. I enjoy this quite distinctive and somewhat muted style when it’s in season, and Victory has come up with a nice take on it, although (being a big Hop Devil fan) I was disappointed they didn’t manage to hit this one out of the park.

Average typical oktoberfest beer

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.

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2009
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.
