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

Toasty ,cereal malt, just like an authentic German Oktoberfest should smell like crisp clean malts in taste, with just a hint of candy sucker sweetness,drys out in finish with a lingering hop bitterness in finish,which actually becomes a little aggressive towards the middle of your glass

This beer smells a bit like honey and raisons. It is milky bronze in color and has a very small head. The flavor is sweet with a nice clean finish. An enjoyable Oktoberfest!!

Nothing overpowering here but it has a nice smooth feel, toffee caramel fruit, straw, and a little hoppy pinch in its end. Some carbonation is present in the finish.

Nov 2005 - Poured orangish, coppery color with nice fluffy head. Aroma and flavor was sweet malts and caramel. Very sweet with slight hop finish. Pretty good tailgating brew!

Pours a clear dark golden color with a quick diminishing head. Has a heavy syrup texture, with hints of spice and light citrus fruits. Finished with a light hoppy taste. Reminded me of apple juice.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

I was very excited to try this. I like most Victory beers. I was very disappointed in this one. The beer is very light almost effervescent and drinkable almost like a red ale with a bit of spices added. It is not as heavy or flavorful as I would expect in an Oktoberfest.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Bottle-BBD Feb. 24th, 08- Pours a clear amber with some bronze-brown, an off-white head, aroma of malt, toasted malt and some malt sweetness in the background, same taste as aroma, the sweetness subsides quickly with some hop bitterness, easy to drink just not as flavorful as some other Octoberfest beers, more of a middle of the road Octoberfest.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Rated Blind. October 2013. 12oz Bottle. Sweet, caramel aroma, topped with a little bit of cooked squash and distant spice and fruit. Sweet, gummy, and a hint of fusels and alcohols. I’d almost guess this wasn’t made with a lager yeast, but it’s got that slight crispness on the finish with pear and almond that changes my mind. There’s a distinct dirtiness to this that gives off a hint of chocolate malt or house yeast. Faint herbal hop finish. Not all that traditional, nor crisp. 6/3/6/2/10.

9/25/2007. 12 Oz Bottle. Light ester and grain bed aroma. Hay and haybarn. Mossy, slightly salty. Clear middle amber orange, soaped rim of beige. Flavor is a minimalist approach the already plain Oktoberfest. Here even the Munich malt plays quietly in the corner. Water is forefront. Light sugars, malt cream, and lightly wheaty fruits bounce around an empty room. No chewiness, no depth, no crisp hop balance. Nothing to get excited about. Backs out the door with honey and herbs. Clean...blah, blah, blah...boring. 7/3/7/3/11
