Pale brown look, not bad looking head. After having 12 Horse the aromas seemed to nice .Watery? Yes but with plenty of ’wood’, caramel and bitterness. Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2002
Orangey-amber; caramel nose; some toast, caramel in the palate; slightly syrupy in the finish, with only the vaguest hint of hops; sweetens out right at the end with a toffee note. UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Better than any of the other Beck’s beers. Alright, but not worth premium price. There’s nothing special to say about the taste. One of those beers where you can imagine what it’ll taste like without actually buying. Mostly an "image" beer, something for young professionals trying to look successful, in my opinion. npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2002
Starts out as an unbalanced array of bitter, metallic, and cloyingly sweet flavors. Surprisingly, it grew on me a bit and toward the end found a pleasing vanilla flavor in there. Still kind of crappy, but not a complete waste of time. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 8, 2002
Deep golden amber color with a thin head and not much lace. the aroma is slightly sweet but sour with a hint of hops. the flavor is bitter and hoppy with a hint of sweet malt. the finish is dry and hoppy.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Was the bottle green? Well this was the nastiest oktoberfest I have ever had. Euro-skunk, but with malt... maxhits (172) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - OCT 5, 2002
Easy to drink and a delightful change from this brewer; however, clear glass bottles often result in beer that develops a bit of a cardboard flavor. Personally, I liked Sam’s OctoberFest better. PBOYNY (316) - Westchester, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2002
a bit overcarbed with a carmel finish, not bad really, much better than that slop they normally brew. Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2002
thin and slightly fizzy. Had some caramel notes, but not nearly enough. The one thing i did like about it was a short dry finish. not the best fest. Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Light copper color. Tasted a bit flat, no head. Only had one bottle, maybe going bad. Probably not though, this is only exported to the US. That’s the way we like it over here!
