2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a copper/ amber color, with little head. The aroma is of malt, and lightly of hops. the flavor is malty, hops, and a caramel flavor too. This beer is not the best from victory in my opinion.

Bottle. From the bottle so no pour. Aromas of caramel malts, bread, slight skunk, and a bit of pretzel? Flavor is super smooth. Caramel, bread, floral hops,and nice carbonation. Well done brew and really easy to drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep golden with amber tints and no head at all, just soapy white rings around the surface of the beer. Nose was pilsner malt, caramelled malt, slight hops, moderate apple juice, and cereal. The taste is mild apple juice, pilsner, cereal, and slight hops. Mouthfeel is refreshing. Decent marzen but not great, something is wrong with this beer but can’t pin it down.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has some definite breadiness to it.
The pour is a honey color with a small white head. Has a malty, slightly sour taste to it. Nothing special

Couldn’t detect a real distinct aroma. Slightly sweet. Poured a nice rich amber color. Virtually zero head. Was hoping for a little more maltiness or character in the flavor. It was an ok beer but for the price, I could have done better. Victory makes much better brew than this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper/brown pour with minimal off-white head. Nice aroma of earthy malts, light caramel, and hops. Very spiced taste. A little fruity with a large floral character. Hops poke through a little in the end for an interesting balance.

Bottled in a pint glass. A bit bitter, mild hops and malts. Transparent coppery color, thin head. A flavorful and enjoyable drinking beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not my favorite oktoberfest, but this is a really good all around example... Medium to lighter mouthfeel... mild aroma of caramel and toasted nuts... Flavor has a tinge to it that’s distinctly oktoberfest... almost a spicy character... mildly effervescent... Good overall, and easy to drink

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper with a 2 finger head that dies quick. Smells crisp of nuts and spice with a little vanilla. Tastes as it smells with a touch of malt to balance out all the mild flavors. Medium to light in the mouth with tasty carbonation. Drinkability is great as this is a sessionable but not impressionable brew.
