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

Bottled. Beautiful orange body light head very nice lacing. True to form smells of a german lager, muted. Obvious munich malts and subtle german hop presence. Crisp and refreshing, but a little too carbonated for me. Still better than a budweiser.

mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2013
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.

Exemplar of the style and a credit to the brewers. I poured a 12 oz bottle into a shaker. This caramel-colored beer gave off a lively bready aroma, and flavors followed suit, with dough, yeast, caramel, vanilla, and the merest whiff of grass. I’m not a fan of Oktoberfests, but this is definitely a good session beer and the perfect addition to an afternoon of football here in the American South.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2012
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.

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

waltersrj (280) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2010
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.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2008
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.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2006
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.

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottled in a pint glass. A bit bitter, mild hops and malts. Transparent coppery color, thin head. A flavorful and enjoyable drinking beer.

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
