Vienna Brown/Octoberfest is one of my favorite styles of beer. I hate to say it, but even Sam Adams does it a little better than Triumph. Triumph has been somewhat vanquished and smited (Though not by Anheuser World Select) by the likes of Sam Adams (somewhat unrespectable) and Paulaner (If they could beat Paulaner, they would be GODS!!!).
Don’t get me wrong (as you morons usually do). This is a great beer. Just not super-great. It’s not Ubermensch, my little Berliner. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2004
On tap at the Lehigh Valley Brew Fest ’04. Poured a medium orange color with a small off white head. Aroma and tastes of malts, toffee, and bread. Maybe I’m just bored of Oktobefests now, but this seems like every other one I’ve had lately (not bad, but nothing too special). SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Lots of good Munich malt character, a little on the sweet side, could use a little aging, and maybe be fermented out a little more tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2005
Thick, chewy, bready, malt forward aroma. Clear copper brown body with a low off white head that recedes to partial cover and ring. Malty sweet bready flavour with some lavender and floral flavoured hops and low finishing bitterness. Medium body with smooth texture and lively effervescence. Sampled on tap at the Pennsylvania location of the brewpub with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and Yowie. Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Notes from Oct
Copper pour with no head to speak of. Light toasty malt/caramel aromas, hops muted. Very light in body almost to a fault, but flavor brings the score up a bit. Rounded well with hop bitterness about midway through, finishes bitter with a wisp of citrus rind

New Hope. Clear golden-amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Sweet caramel nose with notes of grapes, toast, and buttery nuts. Medium sweet malty flavor with light fruity aspects, emerging Noble hop signatures, and low bitterness. Good, quaffable Oktoberfest. beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2007
On tap at their New Hope brewpub. Pours crystal clear amber with a moderate off-white head that was gone after a few sips. Pleasant aroma of caramel and malt. Flavor was a bit light with caramel and malt both noted. A bit thin in the mouthfeel. This beer is a
bit lighter than most marzens I have sampled thus far. DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2009
(11/10/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Philadelphia. Clear amber color. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Sweet toasty flavor with some bread and caramel. A bit drier in the finish. Medium-bodied. Travlr (24292) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 25, 2013
