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. Pours burnt amber color with a thin and fast dissipateing white head. Aroma is of caramel, malts, and fall spices. Flavor is similar to aroma, but not as good. Palate is very watered down, light. Finish is very mild bitter, almost non-existant. Nothing bad, but just nothing good either.

Amber color with a tannish head and a nice malty aroma. This has a nice malty, caramel tatse with a medium bodied sensation lingering on the palate.

Look: Dark amber, off white lacing. Smell: Toasted malt, caramel sweetness, earthly, spicy. Taste: Toasted wheat bread, Herbal hops, Caramel, nice chocolate after taste in the finish as the brew warms up. Highly drinkable. Feel: Medium body,soda pop-esque carbonation. Overall: This is a first for the Marzen style. This reminds me of an amber ale. Similar in taste profile. This is a well polished, well balanced and highly easy drinking brew. This is worthy.

pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Tap: Pours a mild amber color. Flavor is of some sweet malts with a bit of alcohol and a little bit of hops. This is not a very complex, flavorful, or very good marzen.

This beer smells a bit like honey and raisons. It is milky bronze in color and has a very small head. The flavor is sweet with a nice clean finish. An enjoyable Oktoberfest!!

berniecarbo (148) - Holliston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Poured amber with a light white head. Wondered how Victory’s normally hoppy beers would treat an octoberfest, stayed true to the German style. Smooth malts with the right hop balance, great tasting.

phiconners (147) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Pours a nice amber, thin head. Interesting flavor, more flavor than a lot of Oktoberfest beers. Decent beer.

starewich (140) - - OCT 27, 2012
Very clear amber. No head? Almond and banana nose. The body and carbonation of a boutique soft-drink. A notable sour-apple tang and a hint of bitter celery. Super smooth, the most interesting of its style in recent memory.

crhensel (136) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Poured a deep ambery copper color with very little head. The aroma was full of caramel with a very subtle roasted malt. Medium body with a light carbonation was very well balanced with just enough hop bite to keep it crisp and very refreshing. All around a very clean and drinkable beer.

Dark amber color with a nice fizziness. Flavor is full of malt and caramel. Definitely my favorite so far in this style.
