COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This seasonal specialty is brewed in limited quantities. Beck’s brewmasters create the distinctive, malty-sweet, amber-colored brew so people throughout the world can celebrate the season popularly known in Germany as Oktoberfest.

MadRobin (1947) - 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

hfmejias (722) - Dover, Delaware, USA - SEP 9, 2013
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.

Bottle from World Market. Brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is spice and cardboard. Taste is butter, a light bitterness, and burned caramel.

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.

TomTron (376) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2013
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.

AndyW68 (1086) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 5, 2013
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.

EithCubes (4908) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Green glass, label is saying this one was brewed in St Louis, MO. Sweet malty nose, a touch of corn in with toffee-laced malt. Pours copper-amber with a beige head. Taste is sweet with earth and dark toffee, gritty grain and a pleasant if very thin layer of malt. Light-medium bitterness, a touch unclean but not too stale. Light-medium body. Has the trappings of industry.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - FEB 13, 2013
It’s fine, nothing much going on, bland, brown, roasty like and octoberfest but without too much up front, not too much character. For basic beer, it’s fine, just nothing special.

Bottle into pint glass..Pours light brown, light thin whiote head.. Skunky metallic aroma, taste is malts and caramel, not a fan

Beck’s Oktoberfest pours a dark amber color with a weak scent of spices and heavier scent of malts. The same is in the taste with weaker spices and thicker on the malts, but they are very well blended together in a good smooth taste. It’s nice to have an Oktoberfest beer that doesn’t have an overpowering spice taste like some of the american beers.
