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.

Clear bottle - great for marketing purposes, I guess. Nice bubbly head. Good amber color. That’s where the praise tapers off. The flavor lacked fullness, somewhat. An adequate marzen. Surprisingly well-hopped, so be ready for it.

A good beer ruined by bad bottles. How many times have you heard that one? My bottle of this brew was so skunky that it almost made me cry. I really don’t know how good this beer may have been fresh, but now it is acidic, sour and nasty. I am sad. I do like oktoberfests lots.

Re-Rate 08/25/02: Clear dark amber, the head is creamy biege and the lace adequate. Malt nose, hints of caramel, slightly sweet. Sweet start, the top is light, the finish is acidic, dry, and a fair hop presence, quite drinkable, a good session beer. Ranks #883 on my current 1000 beer master list.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2003 (BB 7/2003) Packed in a clear bottle this year. I guess the green glass did not let enough skunks into the beer. I pulled my sample from a 6 pack that was in the dark. Typical marzen color. The palate lacks depth and is very dry. The finish is dry and spicy. Overall this beer below average.
