3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve found some of victory’s beers to be a little to thin for the syle before, but I think that actually works for them here. Too often american octoberfests are too malty, from excess munich and crystal malts, to the point where they are hard to drink. This one is orange-amber, small white head. Very smooth malty flavor, appropriately hopped. Easy drinking and enjoyable with a smooth finish. Tastes like what I would expect a good german O-fest that’s still fresh would taste like.

12 oz. Bottle @ Dchmela’s house. Thanks Dave. Merry Christmas.
Great deep golden pour almost copper like. Nice fluffy head out of this bottle. Fresh crisp lightly bitter. Grassy but in a great way. Enjoy!

Bottle poured into the WABL tankard I got in the mail today to start Oktoberfest a little early I guess. Pours clear copper/orange with a small bubbly off-white head. Caramel, fresh grain, yeasty bread, a little bit of earth and grass. Carbonated.

On tap at Victory. Nothing stands out too much about it. Solid Octoberfest, but nothing spectacular. Nothing to write home about, but you can’t blame a great brewery for making a good version of a mediocre style.

aroma is grassy with honey and caramel apparent as well,very mild pumpkin like spice ...appearance is pleasant enough clear orange red brown color white head that does not last except for a thin white ring..taste is roasty-ish malts honey and grassy hops with a distinct wheat flavor as well..palate is smooth on the bottom tingly and bitter up top... an interesting and flavorful oktoberfest beer I think one of the better ones too neither the malty or bitter flavors are subdued

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewery. Copper color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty with a bit of honey. Flavor is woody and malty with a finish that reminds me of fish bait. Not quite as disgusting as that sounds but just average.

Poured a clear amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is caramel, cereal, roasty, nuts, spruce, earthy and sweet. Taste is sweet caramel, with a maple syrup kind of taste and a bittersweet finish. Feels smooth and the carbonation is just right.

Good beer, but nothing special. The flavors are light as is the aroma. Not the best octoberfest that I have had but it could be worse. Overall it is an average beer. Worth the try.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a great copper orange with minimal head. Flavor is smooth up front, an even balance of subtle hops and full bodied malt. Body is smooth as well, making this thoroughly drinkable. Flavorable isn’t overly memorable, but it’s great while it lasts. I’m not a big oktoberfest/marzen fan, but this is nice.
