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.

Pours a clear, but dark copper color. About half finger light tan head. Light retention, light lacing.

Aroma is malt malt malt. Medium roasted malt. Caramel, light molasses. There might be some very light floral or herbal hops. Smells inviting, can’t wait to dive in.

Taste follows the nose. Sweet roasted malts. Caramel, molasses, bready. Simple, tasty.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Easy drinking, super drinkable. It’s semi dry. There’s a touch of bitterness toward the end, not overwhelming. But it comes in too late for balance.

Overall, it’s a fine marzen. Simple, nothing fancy, does the trick. Absolutely, I recommend this. I am surprised by this. I absolutely would buy this again.!

It has the taste of a normal Beck’s lager really dominating the maltiness that I like about Oktoberfests - not worth getting again, spend $1 more on almost any other widely available 6-packs and it will be better.

Clear Reddish Copper Color, Medium Small White Froth Head, Light Spotty Lacing. Malt Aroma. Malt, Some Sweet Notes, Caramel, Light Bitter Hop Finish. Not The Best for Style but Decent Enough. Drinkable. OK.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radio_nowhere (1395) - Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2014
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.

obguthr (5646) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2014
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.

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.
