2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is the second oktoberfest Ive had in a row and my thoughts havent changed much. This beer has very subtle spices with high carbonation. I love the victory brewery, but this is definitely not one of the highlights. The style of this beer is just very flat with nothing setting it apart. Very uncharacteristic of victory. I have the highest of expectations for this brewery and I would recommend trying their other styles far before coming to this one.

Perfect amber color. Very little head. Aroma is of very sweet caramel, and not too much else. Taste is definitely of caramel, and a good biscuityness to it as well. Lighter carbonation than I would expect, but not terrible. Good body too.

Orange brown, with little or no head. Lightly sweet, malty and a bit of caramel. Not a bad oktoberfest.

Nice head. Faint aroma but I think I served this one to cold. Taste is decent. Nothing great. Bready and yeasty. Mild hops. Smooth. Sam Adams still brews the best american made marzen in my opinion.

Overall a decent Oktoberfest. The malt was a little weak for my tastes in an O-fest, but it was nice and clean as far as yeast flavors go.

i’m a big fan of all victory’s brews but this one left me hanging..i was just expecting a solid Oktoberfest after having the primas and devils for so long..didn’t happen...the body was thin and a little watery...flavor of weak fest malts not much for hops, nothing stood out for me..still love Victory but they need to step up their fest brew...

Reddish amber with little to no head. Aroma of german hop funk and brown sugar. Deliciously smooth with hints of chocolate malt, cinnamon, a touch of hops, and a lightly dry finish. Nice marzen.

I really enjoyed this beer, pours a nice red color with an off white head that sticks around. Smells sweet, hints of fruit and bread. Taste of malts and candied fruits prevail, balanced by some hops so it is not overbearing. Great beer to enjoy

Big disappointment from Victory. This stuff doesnt have much flavor at all. Victory is one of the best breweries in the country, but you wouldnt know if from this beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish amber in color, little to no head in minutes. I think this bottle was too old since the flavor was not real great, kind of flat. Sweet aroma, very muted caramel and nutty flavors....would like to try a fresh bottle to really get a better feel for this one!
