Failed to impress me with this beer. The taste was pretty bland, it tasted like a watered down lager, which is to say, not that flavorful. Maybe too much carbonation.

Bit too sweet for me but underrated. Toasty. cereal malts overmatch the hops.Oily. Finish and aftertaste is a strength. Clove spice is about right. Light and a bit watery but a nice session beer.

Has a malty nose with some hints of spice. Tastes much the same, with a nice bit of hops. This is the first Voctory beer that I didnt absolutely love, but its still prety good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber-brown with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel and apples. Sweet malts dominate flavor, with lots of earthiness and caramel, some spiciness. Lots of carbonation, but it’s not overly harsh.

Pours clear brown and red tinged amber with a fat white that is nice and foamy. Visibly carbonated . No lacing and head fades to nothing. Aroma is pungent grassy noble hops and bready malts. Taste is very hop forward with far less caramel malt flavor than most oktoberfest beers. Still a nice malt backbone - but more bready than sweet. Applause for a different take on the style.

Nice easy-drinking beer. Standard amber body with some fresh citrus hops and sweet caramel malt aromas Malty with a touch of citrus and yeast in the medium mouthfeel. Nice aftertaste with a light bitter touch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours razor-clear amber with thin head, ok retention. Aroma is very cereally toasted malt and nuts; smells like a fresh mash if you’ve ever experienced one; perhaps a bit heavy on the crystal malt, though. Taste is bready and nutty with a mild spicy noble hop finish. Body is medium, average carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, dry-ish finish. Overall, a delightful oktoberfest that tastes very fresh.

Poured amber with an off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and some hops. Good balance of malt and hops. A tad more malt character. Fruit and spice flavors also present.
