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.

Livendadream (124) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 13, 2013
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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

beertholomeus (859) - California, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Pours an amber orange color with off white head. Malt, caramel and toffee aroma. Malt, biscuit and caramel flavors. Medium light body and a malty finish.

kdm1984 (699) - Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2013
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.

MadRobin (2036) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 9, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
