2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
In the bottle from HyVee CB. I’m sad that this is a green bottle, as I will re-rate this once the Crescent Moon gets it on tap. Pours a very crisp and clean dark brown with a surprisingly white head. Thios has a thin body with a good chocolate and roasted backbone. Good, but not great.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: The aroma is rather light and consists of some faint fruitiness and a hint of roastiness. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a small off-white head. The flavor starts with light chocolate with some fruity sweetness. The finish has some light roastiness. Light-medium bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark amber with a thin head that quickly dissolves. Malty aroma with a watery taste. The first beer I poured from the six was flat with no carbonation whatsoever. This beer was very boring. Will not try again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle - Pours medium brown with a thin head. It smells mainly of caramel malt. The flavor is sweet lightly roasted malt and not much else. It’s light bodied, simple, drinkable, and underwhelming.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This drinkable but underwhelming brew is better than regular Spaten, but nonetheless boring. Primariliy malty. Ratebeer.com needs to get its web site straight. I rated this and another beer the other night and it didn’t add my ratings. Annoying.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009 Bottle. Sweet, barleyesque aroma with a reddish brown hue and no head. Tastes of sweet, darkly roasted malts. Honey and molasses perhaps? Light on the palate, though a bit oily. An enjoyable beverage.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from BeerGestapo, served in an Ayinger stem glass. Thanks Mike. Pours a clear brown-amber color topped by a small disappearing head. The nose is slightly skunked. Thank you Spaten for packaging your beers in green glass. Also light amounts of bready malts and toffee. Flavor is nice and balanced. Some notes of caramel, bread, & noble hops. Burps taste skunked however. Medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink, simple and enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft Pours a reddish amber with an off white head. The head deminishes quickly. Aroma is of caramel, earthy, and grains. Has a decent carbonation. The flavor was lacking at best. A little sweet but not really a bold sweetness. Has a watery texture. A light body. The finish was better than macro swill but left something to be desired.
