IM not a big fan of oktoberfests at all, but even for that, this wasnt very good, victory has so many better products than this

not impressed with this beer. Would rather go with other victory brews. Nothing made me want to get this one again

Pours from 12 oz bottle a clear coppery color, forming little foam. Aroma of malts, caramel, perhaps a bit of field grass. Flavour what you would think from a marzen type beer, light caramel and malts, and again some field grass sneak in. Not my most fave style, but decent enough.

Pours dark amber. Minimal head. Tastes a bit watery, surprising for a Victory beer. Easy drinker but nothing special.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 Rerate: Downgrading as I’ve found the head disappointing and overall the beer is less distinct than I may have thought originally. Smooth, leaves mild sweetness and dry hop bite.
Previous: solid beer, pretty good marzen

A pretty standard American beer. Amber, mildly hoppy, a decent albeit short aftertaste. Nothing spectacular, nothing horrible. Just standard beer.

Nice amber color, no head, not even any little bubbles looked flat. Aroma is weak, slightly malty maybe a little ripe fruit, kinda bananaish. Flavor is sort of malty with a bit of a nutty finish. Had this draft at Victory in the sampler. One of the weakest in the show.

This is the second oktoberfest Ive had in a row and my thoughts havent changed much. This beer has very subtle spices with high carbonation. I love the victory brewery, but this is definitely not one of the highlights. The style of this beer is just very flat with nothing setting it apart. Very uncharacteristic of victory. I have the highest of expectations for this brewery and I would recommend trying their other styles far before coming to this one.

Another dissapointing brew from these guys. No aroma to speak of. Flavor has lots of toasted malt, with a touch of caramel. Finishes with a rather watered down malt sweetness.

Bottle: Aroma is light Euro-lager sweetness with moderate grassy hops. Pours a bright transparent amber witih a small white head. Flavor is just like the aroma. Euro-lager sweetness up front with a grassy hop finish. Very bland and not a good example of the style in my opinion.
