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

Bottle. Slight malty aroma. Poured a copper brown with a white head that dissipated after a couple minutes. Some lacing and sheeting on the glass. Really like the flavor. Pretty malty, with some sweetness and nutmeg, with a little orange citrus flavor. Hard to detect any hops bitterness. Very smooth mouthfeel and drinkability.

Bottle @ home. Red amber color. Sweet aroma of caramel, bread, oranges, notes of toffee, spices and red fruits. Smooth oily texture, medium bodied, with med-high carbonation. Sweet flavor with caramel, red fruits, oranges. Drier lightly roasted and nutty finish with grassy bitterness.

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Pours bright, clear orange-red, with a tiny head that disappears quickly. Aroma of lightly toasted malts and and some grapey fruitiness. Mild sweet malty flavor with some white grape notes, honey and a moderately dry finish. Light-to-medium bodied with low (almost flat) prickly carbonation. Pretty easy drinking and reasonably true to style, but not exceptional.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Pours a dark copper, with a head that quickly fades. This beer has some malty sweetness, may be a bit overcarbonated and the hop bitterness is more than usual. Not a bad beer.

Another good beer from these guys. Not as creative as some others but solid still.

very average marzen in my opinion, bit of a surprise given the brewer. light copper color with low carbonation and a metallic smell that is off putting. chewy breads and caramel yet somehow thin and watery, kind of grew on me as i drank it almost in a so-bad-it’s-good kinda way, i have another bottle chilling and i did not chill this bottle for very long so may have to re-rate.

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 a beautiful amber with minimal white head. Phenolic aroma. Victory is one of my favorite microbreweries and this did not disappoint. Tangy mouthfeel. A very enjoyable brew. Picked up rather early in the season and would recommend a few bottles while grilling. Unsure why this is limited to the winter season. Glad I live in Atlanta so I can enjoy on the deck while hovering over some burgers and dogs.
