2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Thought I was getting a German import but after tasting it, checked the bottle and see it was brewed in USA. Not the same. Pass on this. Just pass.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 8-25-2009 (Best Before 06.2010 Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized fizzy ivory head that mostly diminished, transparent amber body, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is light caramel malt and a hint of hops. The Taste mimics the Aroma. The Palate is fairly smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer lacks character, no WOW factor and there are better of this style to be had. I do not recommend this beer.

Bottle. Pours Amber with a thin small tan head. Strong aroma of malts. Unfortunately, the flavor doesn't match the aroma. Very thin and watery. Hints of caramel and toffee. Good effort but lacks in flavor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Bottle. Amber color. Small head. No lace. Slight skunk, caramel, grain aroma. Taste is rather bland and watery for a Oktoberfest.

The pour is beautiful, the aroma is quite rich and the taste is complex with a malty front with a slight fruit note in the finish. The only downside is that the bubbles are a bit harsh and take away from the flavor up front.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Btl pours clear reddish amber color thick creamy off white head that last awhile leaving lots of lacing on glass. Aromas of toffee, roasted malts and sweet bread. Taste is semi sweet malt with a slight twang. A slight toffee flavor and a very faint hop taste. Light body, smooth texture, good carbonation. Well this beer has great aroma and virtually no flavor. It is drinkable but pretty mediocre.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Coppery brown, thin head. Blink and it's gone. No lacing. Sweet caramelly aroma. Nondescript marzen. An ostensibly German brewer should do better than this. Ok, not bad.

Good beer for light drinking, but nothing to write home about. Easy to drink very light flavor.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
