Poured a clear copper color with a tall foamy tan head. There was a light amount of carbonation bubbles rising in the glass. There was a light fruit aroma mixed with a bit of a sweet aroma from the malt. There was a nice smooth mellow flavor of the sweet malt with just a hit of hops on the finish. This was an easy drinking beer, but not very special. Brewbie (497) - New York, USA - DEC 11, 2009
12oz bottle. small fluffy white head, slightly cloudy gold. aroma of hops, some pine. nicely balanced taste, slight sweetness of the malts, little bready, with a touch of hops to balance the finish elosop (496) - SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2014
Mörkt bärnstensfärgad med liten krona. Ej klar. Ganska mkt kolsyra. Obefintlig doft. Syrlig maltsötma dominerar med nån underlig bismak. Batchen förmodligen lätt infekterad som nån annan ratebeerian nyss konstaterade. mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2007
bottle. average fizzy tan head (quickly dissapating) into clear dark amber body. minimal lacing. aromas of light bready rye and molasses. flavor is a muted sweet. watery texture, flat carbonation, medium to long finish duration. ok beer, nothing special. TH28 (488) - - OCT 2, 2015
12 oz bottle. 12/13/15 code date. Appearance: light brown with reddish hue, clear, with light off white foam cap.
Aroma: Bready and caramel maltiness. Light toast.
Taste: Rich bready and caramel malt sweetness, light toast, and low hop bitterness
Mouthfeel: medium to high body for the style, with a light carbonation. A little syrup like.
Finish: Bready caramel sweetness lingers.
Overall: A very malty sweet marzen with caramel as opposed to the more traditional toasted, bready versions. Closer to Sam Adams Ofest than tradional marzens.

Poured a nic copper but with minimal head and no retention. Aromas of Carmel malts, wet bread. Sweet on the nose and taste. A bit thin in the mouth. Taste is bready as is the finish. Typical of the style. ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, sweet fruits, bread, and roasted malts. Has a nice balance between sweet malts and bitter hops. A dry smooth finish. Not too bad. amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Aroma of apples and leather. No head to speak of. Color is a blend of brown and red and very clear. Taste is dry and pasety with a note of ruit and flower. Not the best thing to come out of Victory. lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Pours an attractive caramel color with small head. Aroma is yeasty with notes of maple syrup, honey, lemon, and slight floral hops. Flavor is slightly malty with nice notes of honey and grain to compliment the yeast. Pretty good for a lager. Not altogether light, which I think is a good thing.
