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

Poured amber with a light white head. Wondered how Victory’s normally hoppy beers would treat an octoberfest, stayed true to the German style. Smooth malts with the right hop balance, great tasting.

Lilja (1690) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2014
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, citrus och toner av örter. Lagom sötma, jämn och rund kropp. Fin beska. Ett bra oktoberfestöl.

Very nice Oktoberfest. Sweet caramel and toffee aromas with flavors consisting of dough, spices and more toffee. Medium bodied.

Draft at Bella Note in Pittsburgh. Medium body with an average taste. Not being overly done in any category leaves this in the average category.

gnoff (7934) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
355 ml bottle from Systembolaget Majorna (Göteborg). BB 11 JUL 2015, sampled on October 17, 2014.
Clear to perhaps a tad bit hazy deep golden to amber to pale copper oxide color. Smallish teal head that leaves some lacing on the side of the glass. Mainly malty and grainy scent, sort of raw grains, a bit to the dry and acidic side. Dry, malty, sweet, grainy, grassy, herbal, light bitter taste. Some bitterness, grainy, light acidic, dare I say some stomach bile/puke aftertaste. Medium to fizzy, to the high side CO2 mouthfel, medium to medium high rather dry and mineral like bitterness. Some floral stems, solvent like almost harsh bitterness, rather resin like green feel to it. Some sand and wet stones mixed with cabbage and dandelion leaves. Lots of garden greens and not so much herbal richness. The hops does come through some, but are shadowed by a lot of not so well implemented characteristics. Not for me, and I wouldn’t go for German style either, just not something I’d go out for again, as for always per my personal taste.

Senap (374) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
Ganska söt och en aning fadd. Hyfsat i linje med typen, men inte heller någon riktigt höjdare.

On draft. Cooper color with one finger head. Malty aroma. Taste is like caramel. Decent Oktoberfest.

rollerton (61) - SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2014
Botle from SB. Pours almost no head. Aroma is earthy, taste is bitter and sour. A hint of roasted malt. Light body. In total, an on oktoberfest beer, but far from my favourite.

Another great beer by victory. A very great Oktoberfest beer. Victory has quickly become one of my top go to beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
