2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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?

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

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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
