Amber in color. This medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavor with the perfect amount of hops. Having a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.

Ah, one of the nicest parts of fall. Oktoberfest. A good beer, a little too sweet, however.

Deep amber color with a fruity, almost peachy nose. Caramel in the body with a bitterness that sticks its head out slightly. Finish is somewhat sweet. Good stuff.

This was an OK brew. Pretty easy to drink. Pours kind of brassy amber in color. Creamy, quick fading head. Very smooth, a bit hoppy but really more of a full bodied mild beer.

I seem to remember that Spaten was my least favorite of the Munich Maerzens ten years ago. Not so today--perhaps evidence of Paulaner’s/Hacker-Pschorr’s deterioration. Wonderful classic Maerzen flavors combined in a great balance. The key here is the roasted malt flavors, which give the sweet malt the needed relief. Just great, and a bargain at $5.50/six.

Blond with a bit a brown. Malty and yeasty. Only a slight bitterness to it. Seemed to finish a little dry. Very good stuff.

Light amber hue with fine head and spotted lace. Aroma is malty-sweet and slightly yeasty---quite nice...Flavor features a nice balance of sweet and roasted malts with well-judged hops and moderate carbonation for bite. A slight tang accompanies the balanced finish. Body is right for this style--moderate--and the combination of fine balance and a substantial flavor profile make this one of the leaders of the pack.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 Truly the most beautiful thing to come from Spaten. If I could paint my house this color believe me, I would. Thick billowing head packed with silky smooth malt. 4.1 update: 10/2/2009 Bready, floral aroma with a very floral and light flavor. One of the drier oktoberfest’s I’ve had but it is still on the top of my list.

A good sweet malty smell, but the sweet is too overpowering in the taste. Has a real nice blend of hopps and malt, that still makes it a good beer.
