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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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!!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
