2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 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

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.

3.3 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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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
