As far as Oktoberfests go.........hell, as far as beers go, this rates right up there. I’ve been pretty harsh on a lot of Oktoberfests in the past so either this is that damn good or I’m just acquiring new tastes, but I really enjoyed this. Other Beck’s have been slightly above average but as far as I’m concerned, this is their best. I particularly enjoy the light blue color of the label as far as its presentation goes.

Thick, fast dying head, gorgeous tawny orange body. Downhill from here... decent malt presence not enough to overcome characteristic cheap German beer skunkiness; some breadiness evident, but overall rather spoiled-smelling; flavor is boring if competently realized -- seems to have some corn; flat, bitter, thin finish. Blecch.

Not too bad for a beck’s product... my roommate just got two cases of it (who knows why) so I’m helping him drink it... and I was expecting it to be a chore... nice light chestnut brown color, slight roasty malt aroma and taste... hops surprisingly strong, yet no incredibly so... blue tinted clear bottle interesting... thank goodness we got it in cases or it probably would have been skunked... oh yeah, just for the record, i didn’t by the two cases and had no knowledge of my roommate doing the same... i was disappointed, but shit, this man’s favorite beer is carlsberg, so whatever

Dark copper color, medium head. Light bodied marzen style beer. Mild malts, slightly sweet. Mild hops, not much of a hop bite. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth and dry. Aftertaste is malty with a slightly bitter finish. Nice refreshing beer.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2003 Clear dark orange-copper color, nice white foamy head that leaves a thick lace in the glass. Has a light flowery and malty caramel aromas, sweet and roasty malts flavors, finishes clean, medium body, a little thin and semi-watery mouthfeel, this is a bit better than I expected, still very average.

The malt overpowers the hops. Nice aroma and color, with a woodsy flavor. Overall, not bad at all.

Surprisingly flavorful for a Becks product, but at best a fair example of the style.

Nice look of a Maerzen ... that inviting gold-brown. Excellent toasty flavor, but a bit downgraded for being a little watery and a little too sugary. Overall a good beer.
