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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out a nice clear orangy amber that reminds me of pumpkins and ancient bugs. Also has disappearing white head. Smells like a nice Oktoberfest which is past its prime, which makes sense since this is several months out. It’s got nice sweet malt, roasty, chestnut, and bread notes. The taste is like the aroma good bready malt, with Oktoberfest sweetness. The palate is pretty thin, but enjoyable. Overall this is a fine brew, another good one from Victory.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very enjoyable beer - nothing exceptional but well balanced and smooth. Flavor is dominated by malt - with hints of toasted caramel. A slight hop follow, but not much bitterness to speak of.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling amber color with a short lived head. Rather smooth light to medium bodied lager with a touch of hops. Decent drinking seasonal.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clean amber orange pour with a very light off white head. . A flavor that is a bit malty with a decent bitter finish. Mouthfeel is prettty solid. There was something not right with this one. Just don’t know what it is.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated while drinking: Pours amber-red with an off-white head that quickly, quickly dissipates to nothing. Smells very malty with hints of maybe spicy hops or just spices in general. Pretty one dimensional, but it smells good. Fresh, malty, caramel-sweet taste with hints of sugar or molasses in there. Solid tasting for the style. A bit watery in body than I expected, but nicely carbonated and very drinkable from start to finish. Tasty variation on an Oktoberfest from Victory. Glad I was able to find it this season.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ home. This is a great Oktoberfest. Amber pour w/ thin just off-white head. Light maltiness in the nose, and slightly sugary across the palate. Grainy and dry. Very good.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A few malts on the aroma but not much. Flavor is thin with a few malts and some Carmel. this beer is not much to write home about. Amazed they can get away with charging so much for it.
