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.

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...

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.

a bit overcarbed with a carmel finish, not bad really, much better than that slop they normally brew.

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.

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!

A nice Octoberfest beer with a bit of that Beck’s German bite. And there’s nothing we like more then a little bite from German women...espically at Oktoberfest.

Excellent Oktoberfest brew, copper color, nicely balanced, didn’t keep all that great of a head though, but very delicious beer

As far as Oktoberfests go.........hell, as far as beers go, this rates right up there. I’ve been pretty harsh on a lot of Oktoberfests in the past so either this is that damn good or I’m just acquiring new tastes, but I really enjoyed this. Other Beck’s have been slightly above average but as far as I’m concerned, this is their best. I particularly enjoy the light blue color of the label as far as its presentation goes.
