The beer pours a dark amber in color. There is over an inch of bubbling off-white, foamy head. The aroma is malty, caramel, toffee, lightly nutty. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes, and coming to a dry and fairly bitter finish. The beer drinks with a crisp and refreshing carbonation. The flavors have a little problem holding up on the aftertaste, giving some off flavors. Outside of that this is fairly drinkable.

This 5.2% ABV Oktoberfest beer is from Beck's (their website seems to be trying oh so hard to be hip, and appears to have exactly zero information about their beers). Beck's used to be brewed in Germany, but now, as part of In-Bev, it is brewed in the U.S. (Folks, if I have not reviewed a beer, then I try it to put it on here, but dang, if I wanted a "German" beer, then I want it to have been brewed in Germany.)
