COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This was quite enjoyable. Nice malts, nuts, caramel. Smooth and creamy. Sme nice hoppiness to the finish.

re-rate Had this last night on draft. A light amber, nice head and lace. Nose was full of fresh malt, caramel, hallertau’s, nuts and others. Medium bodied, almost soft with malt galore, smooth as hell, spicy hops and unbelievable drinkability.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 Aroma of caramel, grape, perfume, almond extract, and Pils malts. Extremely delicate mouthfeel; soft carbonation. Intertwined flavors of fig and plum with predominant Pils malt flavors. Undertones of grassy, minimally spicy hops, unfortunately, capped with a long minerally/doughy malt blend. Above average, but far from special.

Light brown colour, nice big off white head. Malty aroma, perhaps a little banana. Small lace around the top of my glass. This one began with a bit too much malt for me, but the hops came out in the end. My first Oktoberfest, so I will try more this fall to make a better comparision.

not very enjoyable, looks crappy and smells crappy and has kinda a buttery taste, but I have trouble giving any oktoberfest a truly bad rating

Just a bit of a malty pepper nose floats above an amber lake of grain. This is a bit ordinary and safe. I’m sometimes conflicted between judging something that is easy to drink, but somehow wishing there was a bit more. It’s easy going down, not too challenging. It presents a very nice hop and malt blend, but the flavor perhaps leaves too quickly.

Lighter amber color than some other Oktoberfest beers. A clean fresh smell with a crisp malty taste. I would say more sharp than smooth in flavor. It finishes with just the right amount of bitterness for me. Overall a very good beer that I would get again.

A nice amber colored beer. A rather good size head became just a skim within a few minutes. Very nice roasted maltiness makes this Marzen pretty smooth and drinkable. Another good beer from Spaten.

A nice, mouth-filling oktoberfest. Rich orange color, malty aroma, rich taste with just a hint of alcohol
