3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler pour over Thanksgiving. One of the better Victory beers I’ve had. A lovely balance of hops and malts with a pleasant nuttiness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
