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

I drank this beer at the Oktoberfest at the Village of Shirlington in Arlington, VA in 2001and it was just great.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a big mug. There is a freshness date on the front label but I can not read it. Appearance: The body has a deep orange amber color with very good clarity. Its head has a good two finger thickness and is just off white in color. It has very good retention and hangs on well making nice slick lacing on the glass as I drink it down. Smell: Its nose is full off floral and spicy Pilsener like saaz hops along with some sweet bready maltiness. Taste/Palate: There is a good bready malty base flavor with nice sweetness and mild caramel and nutty notes. Hop flavor quickly moves in with very tasty spicy/floral and grassy flavor notes. Hop bitterness is very bright and clean on the finish and well balanced to the malt. The body has a solid medium feel with smooth yet active carbonation. Notes: This beer was very interesting and surprising. The malt was Octoberfest all the way but the hops were crisp snappy German Pilsner and they made for a very tasty combination.

Appearance is a clear, glassy reddish orange. One finger of foamy cardboard-brown head. Totally see through. Well-balanced sweetness in the light hops and mildly bitter German malt. Great combination! Smells fresh and flowery. Great aroma, like a fresh harvest ale. Bitter German malt dominates the taste, but the sweetness of the yeast balances that. Hops are very delicate, but also add a lot. Very malty and autumnal. Slightly bitter ending. Unusually smooth, nice body. A bit of Yuengling-like milkyness. Smooth feel perfectly offsets that bitterness. It’s really delicious and easy to drink. A truly excellent fall brew. Drinkable but not thin.

I have to preface this by stating this is one of my favorite beers from Victory, which is one of my favorite breweries. Served in a flight glass at the brewpub. Light gold-amber body with white head. Aroma of apple and yeast. Fruity flavor of apple and prune, slight sweetness, malty yeast and slight bread flavor with light floral hop flavor. Slightly bread-like finish.

Great overall beer and not too hoppy which is great for me. Bold taste but not overbearing (goes down easy). Nice, clean finish with a little bit of spice in the aftertaste.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Pint glass. Appearance: Clear coppery-amber, but not very much head or lacing. Aroma: Integrated mix of biscuit, cherry, caramel and spicy noble hops. Taste: Toasted biscuit-like malts, with some caramel and cherry to round out the malty flavor. Ends with a light touch of bitter spiciness from the noble hops. Excellent balance and combination of flavors. Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium crisp body. Dry finish. Overall: I knew Victory could deliver a solid Marzen, but this was better than expected. Similar to Paulaner, but better executed or perhaps simply fresher.

A fine example. Poured a nice rust colour with almost no head. Pleasantly malty in the mouth. A six pack would be just fine.
