A bit disappointed in this beer seeing it in a green bottle I knew it wasn’t going to be that good I would get Samuel Adams Oktoberfest instead. Both in the same price range and available at mostly every store this is a pass.

Beck’s Oktoberfest has a very thick, frothy, cream-colored head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, copper appearance, and thick lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, medium-roasted barley malt, brown bread crust, and a slight molasses. Taste is of the same, with a bit of sourness and noticeable, yet mellow, hop bitterness at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Beck’s Oktoberfest finishes semi-dry, refreshing, easy going, and highly drinkable. Overall, this beer is excellent and interesting. RJT

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Worried about skunking from the green bottle, but thankfully none here. Tiny head with almost no lacing. Copper color. Sweet malt aroma with lots of bread. Odd, vegetal taste that is not usual for this beer style. Not much toast or nuts; just small hints in the finish. Very metallic. Body is okay. Rather disappointed overall taste-wise. This is not very good - doesn’t taste good and is not very representative of the style.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Clear, amber-orange copper with a large khaki head and that settled fairly quickly and left good lacing.
Aroma of brown bread and caramel.
Taste of sweet brown bread, caramel and sourdough with an unpleasant metallic herbal aftertaste.
Medium/light body and low/medium carbonization.
A poor example of an Oktoberfest. Brauerie Beck's should be embarrassed to put its name on the bottle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, amber in color, nice off white head and very decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is malts and some yeast. Taste, for some reason I was expecting a bit more (since it looks nice and aroma is typical Märzen); Anyhow, it is quite watered down, very sweet and malty. Just OK.

Not what it could be. Read my reviews on Beck’s and the Dark. A-B/InBev need to learn that the mass appeal lower end lagers (Bud) are NOT the standard for German pilsners or quality beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of some must and yeast. Typical marzen with the slight maltiness but also a tad watery. Drinkable but there are better offerings for the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Easy to drink. Not great, but an ok beer. Red copper with white head. Musty marzen nose. Taste is sweet malty earthy and grass. Has a watery tongue feel and a metallic aftertaste.
