Victory Festbier (6/10)

Victory Brewing Company produces V-Twelve, which is one of my all-time favorite beers.  I'm also a fan of their Golden Monkey, so  I was curious to see what I thought of their other products.

Festbier is a Marzen or Oktoberfest style beer.

The beer pours a slightly cloudy reddish brown, with a thick off-white head.

The aroma is yeasty.

The flavor has a hint of smokiness to it, and is an excellent balance between malt and hops.  I enjoyed the beer, but didn't love it nearly as much as V-Twelve.

The folks at Beer Advocate give it an 83-85 out of 100, or call it merely "good".

ABV: 5.6%
IBU: 20
My rating: 6/10
