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

Nothing very special for number 1200. Victory makes some good stuff. A Victory brewed beer is usually among the top beers I’ve tried in a given style, such as Storm King (stout), Old Horizontal (barleywine), Prima Pils (pilsener). This was a pretty good Ok/Mä. Poured out a nice chestnut color with a small off-white head. Pleasant caramel malt aroma with some notes from the German hops. Lively carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. The flavor had some sour notes to it but was decent. Nothing I’d look to have again but nothing I’d turn down, either. [Every time I write the word Victory, I hear cheerleaders spelling it out in my head as that old cheer V-I-C-T-O-R-Y! Very strange.]

More of a traditional marzen, albeit not their best effort. A little bland. Light sweetness with malt presence. Finishes with some off-bitterness.

12 oz bottle thanks to pineypower. Poured golden amber with a smallish head that faded to nothing. Aromas were very faint. Some maltiness but not much. Flavors were better with all that classic oktoberfest malts coming through. Hops were faint and left me with malt in the aftertaste after the hop bite faded. Not my favorite. Takes a lot to impress me in this style

Autumn in a glass, as a lot of these beers of this style are. Body is orange with red and brown, like a bag of leaves. Smell is faint spices, heavy malt. Decent flavor, actually a little heavy for the style. Malt throughout, could use a little dryness. Not a bad beer.

Not my favorite Victory brew by a long shot, but not a bad marzen. Very similar to the Sam Adams O-fest, but with a bit less sweet maltiness and a bit more hops.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malts, caramel, spices, and a very subtle hop aroma. Dissapointed in the flavor on this one after the aroma. Very little flavor of toasted malts, caramel, and a little spices. Flavor dies away pretty quickly. I was hoping for something better.

Hopless compared to most Victory brews. Amber color. Medium body. Sweet flavor, with malt.

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Pours bright, clear orange-red, with a tiny head that disappears quickly. Aroma of lightly toasted malts and and some grapey fruitiness. Mild sweet malty flavor with some white grape notes, honey and a moderately dry finish. Light-to-medium bodied with low (almost flat) prickly carbonation. Pretty easy drinking and reasonably true to style, but not exceptional.
