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. Its nose is full off floral and spicy Pilsener like saaz hops along with some sweet bready maltiness. 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.

Another great beer by victory. A very great Oktoberfest beer. Victory has quickly become one of my top go to beers

17 Nov 07. 12 oz bottle, Enjoy by: Feb.24.08. Deep copper color, light foamy head. Big German malt aromas. Very sweet in the nose. Full-bodied flavor. Lots of caramel, some toffee and figs. All followed by a crisp hop bitterness. Very, very balanced and refreshing. I will definately be drinking this one AGAIN! fuzzykiwiman (4) - , Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2008 does not count
nuts, citrus, amber, clear, frothy, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, medium body, light body, thin feel, lively, long finish, drpimento (3639) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 So far this year of the maybe 8 or so micro and german OKfestsbiers I’ve had, this is the best. Poured at a good temperature with a medium to small off white head and bit of lace. Color is a nice medium amber. Aroma is very nice; malty and a bit spicy. Flavor is ’bout the same, but has a bit of dry roast at the end that makes it rise above the rest.. Body’s good and so is carbonation. Great finish of average length and very drinkable. Session beer.

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. 80skid (65) - New York, USA - FEB 1, 2011
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. bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2011
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. borgination (101) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Delicious beer. Goes down extremely smooth and has a great taste. Has a perfect balance to it.
