3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) head that was just a shade off of white with lacing that was almost non-existent.
The aroma was of toasted bread malts, a mild herbal hop and a soapy yeast with a mild hint of toffee, dried fruit and some spice.
The taste was nice and malty with just a hint of sweetness at first then became a bit more on the bitter side and a little acetic with a mild hoppy-sweet flavor at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time for this style of beer.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall a light Oktoberfest, with a nice balance of flavors making it quite drinkable. It is typical of the Märzen style and a tasty brew.

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.

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.

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.
