A-Amber to light brown with a white head, not much head retention or lacing.
S-Smells very bready, with a hint of sweet caramel, smells decent but the smell didn't get me excited to taste it.
T-Wow, much, much better than the smell, nice caramel taste, and a good sweetness without being too sweet, there's a familiar taste in the finish I can't quite identify, that reminds me of spruce tip beers, but I'm sure that isn't it. Quite good though, surprised me honestly.
M-Pretty full bodied, and very smooth, I really am enjoying this.
O-Very nice beer that surprised me. From my first whiffs of it I thought it was going to be another mediocre Oktoberfest, but once I tasted it I enjoyed it very much, yet another high quality offering from Victory. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher, grab some if you see it.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Enjoying while watching the Yankees Orioles game with good company.

A: Nice ruby red, brown color decent lacing. I can dig it.

S: Wow this smells good. Caramel, bread, nuts, all combine to make my senses tingle with pleasure.

T: Tastes better than it smells. This is definitely more along the lines of a german oktoberfest. It's got a great nutty, earthy quality. The sweet malty caramel goodness is there with a pinch of hops to balance it.

M: When compared to other oktoberfests, this is full-bodied.

O: This has surpassed Great Lakes oktoberfest and is now my favorite. Try it, I don't understand the mediocre ratings, this is good stuff.
