Bottle. Amber colour with a tan head. The aroma is caramel, malt and a bit of rye bread, the taste is thin with caramel and straw in a light body with a nise sweet finish. MrBunn (2839) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Orange amber color with a bit of a head and a grainy aroma. Flavor is heavy on the grains and pleasant. Victory is capable of much more and this wasn’t nearly as crisp as I expected.

An amber beer with a thick, but disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of straw and caramel. I find it quite mainstream. johnykat (65) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2006
This is one of the few beers I enjoy from Victory. It has a golden/brown color and the smell is very inviting. The flavor is malt, some slight fruit, crispness, and some hops at the end. It is a nice Oktoberfest and I am glad to be enjoying a Victory brew. chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2006
Bottle, courtesy of Jim Busch, July 2006. Not one of my favourite Victory beers, but this isn’t really one of my favourite styles. Golden colour. There’s a good depth of toasty, bready malt here and hints of grassy hop. Mellow mouthfeel. In other words much as you’d expect from an Oktoberfest. So pretty authentic but not entirely to my taste.

12oz bottle, Enjoy By Feb 24 07. Pours a clear reddish orange with a 1/2 finger beige head. Aroma is quite sweet with raisins, brown sugar, toasted marshmallows, nuts and caramelly malts. There was a bit of spicy hops after a few whiffs. The flavor up front is a bit tart, but is mostly sweet the rest of the way through. Smells a bit better than it tastes. Medium bodied, low carbonation. I think this may be a tad underrated--or else maybe it’s been a while since I’ve had a good Oktoberfest. ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Bottle. Pours a deep clear amber with a minute head that disappears. Aroma is malt, bread, some citrus. Flavor is brown sugar, malt, fruit, hint of floral hops. Palate is medium, low carbonation, malty finish. Acceptable.
