3.5/5 rDev -5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Amber color with a tan foam. Cloudy look and not much lacing.
S - Slight scent of caramel malt, but also some characteristics I'd smell in a hefeweisen. I'm semlling banana and cloves. Ummm, is this the right beer?
T - Taste is more like the style. Malty notes, some caramel flavoring, and a dash of spices.
M - Very easy drinking. Exactly how a good festbier should be. Quite sessionable and feels light enough to enjoy a few.
O - Can't get past the odd scent of this one. It is a very enjoyable beer but for a marzen I have plent yof other options.

4/5 rDev +7.8%

Victory Festbier has a medium, cream-colored head, a bright, yet hazy, orange/amber appearance, some bubble streams and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, syrupy bread crust, medium-roasted malt, and a slight hop zing. Taste is of all of those elements, and there is even a bit of sourness, here. Mouthfeel is medium, and Victory Festbier finishes crisp, refreshing, and absolutely and completely drinkable. Overall, this is really very delicious!

12 oz bottle best by 1/6/14 poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy burnt-orange color with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: Lots of malt, a bit of caramel, bread aromas
T: Matches the nose. A bit sweet, just the slightest kiss of hops but mostly leavened whole-grain dough
M: Medium-bodied with an unexpected tickle of carbonation
O: A bit sweet for my tastes, pleasant overall
