Sampled at the Newtown Brewfest from the tap. Amber color with thin head. Aroma of sweet malts and a touch of hops. Flavor was sweet with caramel malts, a bit of honey and a slightly bitter hop finish. Not bad, but not too exciting. ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2005
Bottle. Pours a medium red/orange with a good frothy head. Aromas of yeasts and malts. Caramel sweetness and malts all come through in the taste. A descent Oktoberfest. pinkie (470) - New York, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Poured a copper amber with hues of gold as it’s shows off it’s exceptional clarity. Almost tan colored head of foam that fell to a nice ring and a film on top. Carbonation can be seen streaming up. mribm (462) - Ocala, Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2002
Nose is terrific. It is doughy malt, yeasty bread and herbal hops. Perfectly simple. The hops are earthy and give a nice perfume. The malt has a bit of sweetness to it. This beer is decoction brewed.
Taste is firm and and medium bodied with a bit of slickness to the mouthfeel. It’s crisp and it has nutty toasted grain. Lightly sweet bread and herbal earthy hops. Finishes semi dry and with plenty of malt flavor to linger in the aftertaste.
Victory has the habit of making clean and crisp brews that are sharp, meaning distinct and clear. That’s what this beer was. Clean, subtly sweet and earthy. It has abundant flavor and a palate that is ready for anything from burgers to pasta primavera.
Poured from the bottle with a nice creamy head which quickly dissipated and left no lacing. Lots of malt flavor but this wasn’t the worst Oktoberfest/Märzen that I’ve ever had, but it wasn’t the best either. I guess maybe I expect too much from Victory because they really brew some awesome beers. rustbucket0873 (460) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Pours a copper/ amber color, with little head. The aroma is of malt, and lightly of hops. the flavor is malty, hops, and a caramel flavor too. This beer is not the best from victory in my opinion.

Poured amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt and candy. Sweet caramel malt with some bitterness. Hint of fruit. msojka (457) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Pour is an orange color with a quickly dissipating white head. Nose is of spices and nuts.Taste leaves something to be desired but similar to the nose. leah2974 (453) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Tastes like a spice rack, medium bodied, malty with slight lager aftertaste. Very good. Very fall.
