Pours a dark gold to brown color with a small white head. No real distinct aroma. Rich taste and well balanced. Medium, smooth body with light carbonation. Not a fan of Oktoberfest fan and this one hasn’t changed my mind.

Beautiful amber color. Head was a bit thinner than I would have expected, but the bottle I had may have been >6 months old. Sweet malty flavor on first taste and some mild hop bitterness on finish. A good Oktoberfest marzen-style beer, but not great. There are many other better beers out there for this style.

I seldom by bottles of Victory except V12 because the beer at the brewery is just amazing compared and this is no different. In the bottle it is just average,but at that little slice of heaven on Acorn Lane it is quite good. Dark wityh sweet caramel malt flavors.

Pours Amber with off white head. Nice sweet aroma with a bit of malt. THe flavor is quite full for a Märzen with hints of caramel, fruit and a nice finish. Held up well in comparison to Ayinger’s Oktoberfest.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2008 Electric amber body with a thin white head, this seasonal brew is serviceable but not close to my favorite.

12 oz. bottle poured into dimpled mug. Pours a remarkable amber color with a generous tan head. Slightly sweet malty bread aroma with notes of caramel. Nutty and caramel flavors up front with slight hoppy spiciness on the tail end. Very smooth and drinkable, as the style demands. I could see myself drinking a bootfull of this.
