A pretty average okt-fest. Pours a muted red. Kind of tastes a bit oily ,but feels like water? Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 4, 2006
12 oz bottle, best before date Dec 12. As it is Jan 4th, this is past it’s date, but not by much. Pours a orange color with decent off white head. No lacing. Nose is of fresh bread, a tad yeasty. Flavor is malty, with a bit of the yeast shown in the nose. Some caramel sweetness. Slightly sticky finish, with a wisp of bitter left behind. A pretty decent lager, but a fest it is not. Nice for a session or while watching a game. thehinge (297) - Nederland, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Aroma has some definite breadiness to it.
The pour is a honey color with a small white head. Has a malty, slightly sour taste to it. Nothing special xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2005
fresh bread/doughy aroma. amber color, large sea foam head. tastes a bit like dough too, slightly sweet/sour. Pretty light on the flavor and palate, thin, somewhat watery. very easy finish. quite smooth, could drink this very fast. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Orangish colour. flavor is a bit sweet, smooth. not too much of an aroma. overall pretty average.

bottle-pours orange with a small off/white whispy eggshel head. grainy, sweet toasted malt aroma with a big husky grain tone. some earthy flavors with some caramel sweetness, toasted bread, and some grain husks once again. body is fairly round for the style. finish is earthy, leafy, lightly bitter and sweet grain husks. not bad, but not a great ofest.

Bottle. Pours light copper with a minimal head. Flat and very light in flavor, almost watery. Not a typical Victory, but definately a loss. bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - NOV 30, 2005

bottle. translucent copper body with a small white head. aroma is full of rye bread, cereal, and caramel. starts out fairly hoppy, though it’s not overwhelming for the style, bready malt flavours. tasty stuff. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2005
Candied malt aroma, orange hue, good sized custard head. Distinctive malt flavour, good hops also. Nicely balanced, pleasantly sweet, some breadiness too. Fairly good. Thanks mds.
