3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a mug. Pours a dark amber, transparent, with a small beige head that fleets away quickly. This beer smells sweet with caramel notes, toffee, wheat bread. I don’t really care for the feel on this one. There is a great amount of bubbles rising through this one, that really gives this a spritzy feel. I think this detracts from enjoying the flavors quite a bit. The flavor profile is pretty average to the style: sweet caramel, mild bitterness, metallic ting on the back end. This beer had some some things I liked about it, but overall nothing really worked together. With so many better options available to me at this time of year, I don’t see myself reaching for this one again.

Lots of rust and some copper in this. Pours amber with ok head. Definitely better cold, and I drank this warm on the beach from a cooler. Bottle.

Took 2 of these from a friends party, enjoyed at home. It’s ok, nothing outstanding, not a great Oktoberfest brew, but gets the job done.

Out of the green bottle... Nothing really sticking out worth mentioning... It seems like an average beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at in-laws into pint glass, clear copper color with white head. Aroma of toasted malt, some grain and faint caramel. Taste adds some earthiness and faint herbal/spicey note. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with clean finish. Leans kind of Oktoberfest light.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Bland and uninteresting. Low on flavor and taste. Stay with a regular Beck’s and skip this one.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Skunk and cardboard nose. Crystal clear copper, thick yellow head. Cereal grain, dried leaves, honey accent, mild. Light body. Traditional flavor of an authentic maerzen, but very tame.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color, off white head. Malt, earthy things aroma. Taste is malt, yeast and caramel. Crisp brew. Metallic taste. It isn’t bad but it’s a little boring.

"for a buck? why not. not nearly as horrid as regular becks. can’t say too much negative about it at all. nearly an average brew. had the right aroma and taste, but was a little lackluster in the delivery."

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A lighter, easy Oktoberfest. Barely any malt, character, but there’s a hint of caramel. The hops are present with some bitter notes. Crisp, thin, light and easy. Overall not bad but not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Zoo Brew. Pours a gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of bread and grains with a bit of sweetness underlying. Flavor a good amount of earthy grains with some bread and a touch of sweetness.
