Beck’s is Germany's highest-selling exported brew. A true seasonal (the beer is only brewed and bottled for fall), Beck’s Oktoberfest is unique in that it is forbidden from being sold in Germany, simply because it is not brewed in Munich. Harsh, yes, but the beer still passes the German Purity Law of 1516, which requires fresh water and top barley and hops in the brewing process. Beck's Oktoberfest is a bright copper lager topped by a creamy off-white head. It's got a sweet floral aroma and the taste has some serious spice to it, followed by a grainy flavored finish. It’s a very pleasant dry lager; Germany’s loss is America’s gain here.
Didn't make it to Munich? Kick back with these seasonal suds, from Bavaria's finest to American microbrew marvels.
