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

laiti (8249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ One Pint Pub, BBE 11.07.2015. Aroma is rather malty and grainy with some sweet tones and hints of toffee. Flavour has vegetables, toffee, minerals, some goosebery bush and nettles. Thin and too much off-flavours here.

jredmond (8049) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2007
12 oz bottle. Very malty and fruity. Not a big fan of this one. But worthy of another taste and a re-rate in the future.

radagast83 (7844) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle. This is probably my most favorite Oktoberfest beer this season. It is not overpowering, and relatively balanced. The malts aren’t too overpowering, and the hop balance is just about right. Very nice subtle bitter finish.

PorterPounder (7762) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft, 12 oz bottle. Medium copper orangeish pour with little to no head. Aroma is faint, but what is there is earthy and sweet, kind of like fresh mushrooms. Flavor has some hints of caramel, a hint of ripening vegetables, and a bit of a roasty character underlying throughout. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Solid Oktoberfest.

JaBier (7656) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Sample at the Oktoberfest tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/23/10. Clear amber pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, thick caramel and earthy hops. Malty aroma with some nuttiness and some crisp, bitter hops.

Ernest (7593) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of dried mango. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. A fair rendition. A little rough and simple, but ok.

blankboy (7578) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly amber with an average size off-white head. Sweet aroma and flavour of grain, some fruit, malt and mild, slightly stale hops. Light bodied and bland. Tastes like a Lager and for a Victory beer it’s quite dissapointing. Just O.K.

chriso (7533) - 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.
