A- foamy ivory white head, <1 finger, dark amber color

S- earthy, malty, slightly bready

T- biscuity, earthy, smooth, this beer was a littlemore bland to me compared to Ayinger.

M- light, smooth

O- nice. Overall I had never really been into Marzen/octoberfest beers until I went to a tasting. I tried 3 including Ayinger Oktober fest-marzen and firestone walker oaktoberfest. I felt that this was on the same level as firestone walker but not as good as Ayinger

Somewhat hazy coppery amber color; poured with a medium sized fizzy head.

Light toasty grains and they marginally outsized sugary quality. decent enough, but this lacks the depth and breadth of maltiness that I was hoping for. I expected a bit more from Victory.

A: Darker amber. Fast rising carbonation gives small head (3.75/5)

S: Mostly munich malt, but with some green grass (4/5)

M: Lacks carbonation, but maintains crisp, dryness (3.5/5).

T: Clean malt taste, but not smooth. Low hop flavor. Slight bitterness, only moderately sweet (3.5/5). Toasted hay
