Having had nothing but pumpkin ales for the last two weeks, I tired of that and decided to get back to the fall classic: Oktoberfest-Marzen. For good lager-type brew, can't do better. Saw this in the store and picked it up, as I love Victory Brewing and surprisingly haven't had it yet.
Freshness date is: enjoy by Jan 29 '12
Pours a beautiful shiny orange/copper-amber with a solid thick and bubbly white head. Nice retention. Thin lacing that sticks for a reasonable while.
Aromatic notes of sweetness, caramel-like barley, bread and dryness.
Toasted barley, and sweetness all around wave on the tongue,followed by a slight hint of faint hop twang, and finishes nice and dry. Medium body, with very minimal carbonation,allowing the barley sweetness and other characteristics to come through easily.
I really like this one. As good as any authentic made-in-Germany Marzen. And a lot better than some.
Victory scores another home-run with this one, but then again, when do they not?
Four Stars(out of four)
