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.

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.

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.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 Far, far better tasting than I would imagine a ABInBev beer in a green bottle. Clear marzen copper, with a fading head that barely lasts. Malty nose with earthy caramel, biscuity yeast, and a bit of light toast with a subtle and faint grassy hop presence. Flavor was both sweet yet dry, finely carbonated and just the right medium-full strength for an oktoberfest. Nice sweet caramel and biscuity flavors with a bit of grassy hops and a wee bit of golden toast. Great Oktoberfest, regardless of manufacturer.

djd07 (3240) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper gold with small frothy off white head. The aroma is a raisin malt and toffee. Thin mouthfeel with s sweet honey malt a d raisin. Easy to drink, a decent marzen from Becks.

Imaena (1788) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Draught. Not a Marzen that I would ever want to revisit. Thin and bland.

kjc51478 (383) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2012
12oz Bottle. Appearance is opaque, light orange color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is simple - grass, spruce, some bread. Taste isn’t much different from the normal Beck’s, just a bit maltier - grass hops, grain, some astringent flavors. Light bodied, average carbonation, somewhat thin texture, and a semi-dry finish.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Amber with a white head. Aroma is full of bread and toffee with not too much else going on. The flavor is similar. There is a ton of caramel and toffee in the flavor, as well as some biscuit malt and a hint of grass. Not skunked, which is quite an achievement for Beck’s.

Bottle. Medium copper color - clear. Clean, slightly malty aroma. Pretty good - malty with some hops.
