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

The first lager I’ve had in a while, and certainly not a disappointment. Victory does a good lager. Muted fruit flavors, like grapes, and maybe even a little smokiness. Medium to light body, very creamy texture, fine bubbles, leaves a little sticky dry on the palate. Hops edging towards a certain sourness, but definitely making a positive appearance.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Nutty, slightly bready aroma with milld, floral hops and some malted grain. It pours a light mahogany without much of a head. The mouthfeel is more vigorous than the beer visually portends. The taste is gentle, nutty malts and a nice hop bitterness. Nice and sessionable.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Ar: Deep caramel, sweet apples, some toasty malt, hay. Ap: Orange-amber, crystal-clear - small off-white head with moderate retention and a light wisp of foam. T: Toasted malt, a touch of sweetness - lots of apple and a solid grip of medium caramel - bitterness is medium-low - apple tannin lingers in finish, somewhat harsh. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - finish is dry. O: This beer seems like it could be nice, but the apple flavor just dominates and gets in the way.

12oz. Pretty sad looking pour, nice copper amber hue but a thin head that is gone in 10 seconds. Soft, disappointing carbonation, but a malty body that saves this one from a total loss. Not the worst Maerzen I’ve had, but I would like to see a better pour with more complexity.

A pretty average okt-fest. Pours a muted red. Kind of tastes a bit oily ,but feels like water?

Copper in color, with a nice head. Malty aroma that is tempting! Thought the mouthfeel was good, with a nice malty flavor that is tinged with hops. Nice bittering.

Nice medium bodied, cold aged marzen lager. Stellar CO2 powers a nice, fixed aroma of spices and herbs- a pretty good Oktoberfest style beer that is easy to drink, with well hidden alcohol.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
This beer has a mild malty/fruity aroma that is similar to the earthy smell of wet decaying leaves. It is amber in color and pours a thick cream colored head that dissolves quickly leaving only a small trace of lacing. This thin beer produces a weak fruity nutty/ biscuit flavor. It produces a gentle hint of a metallic substance as it lingers.

Pours a copper color. Not a great head, better lacing. A little hazy. Eh, it’s okay on that part.

Aroma is very malty. Very toasty, very roasty. Caramel and maybe some roasted nuts.

Taste is pretty darn good. Sure, you’ve got your roasted malt, caramel and toffee, yeah yeah. It fits the style well, but hey, I’m also tasting some surprising tobacco flavor. It’s rich and smokey, and it’s very tasty.

Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied. It’s somewhat bitter finish. There’s also some of that tobacco in the finish.

Overall, I like this a lot. Particularly because of the tobacco flavor. Yeah, that’s tobacco. Like Levi Garrett. But other than that, it would still be pretty solid without it. But yes, you should certainly try it. I would absolutely have it again.
