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.

Caramel aromas, raisiny. Mostly clear, bronze, burnished gold highlights, a mostly fading white head. Pretty sweet, a little fruity, some toast. Light-medium bodied, a little sticky.

jcnielsen (3095) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a medium brown color with white head. Malty, bready, slight nutty, slight skunked aromas. Bread, skunky, malty flavors. It has some skunked from the green bottle, but overall a very enjoyable beer.

hitit345 (26) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Malty, slightly sweet aroma. Amazing appearance, almost burnt orange. Taste like what a marzen is supposed to take like, malty, great body. Smooth, clean, slightly dry. Makes you crave a nice warm pretzel, mustard, brat, and sauerkraut.

madquacker (1099) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2015
Flat with a very copper looking hue. Sweet and pretty dull. Maybe I do not yet get the style.

spokeydonkey (78) - Albany, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Crystal clear amber/brown beer with a head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is bready and toasty. Taste has dark toasty malt richness followed up by a surprisingly strong hop character. Finishes quite dry. Drinks a lot dryer and lighter than other Oktoberfest’s I’ve had, but that helps make it more drinkable.

Whenever you hear about authentic German Oktoberfests, it’s rare Spaten’s brew isn’t mentioned in the conversation. No doubt about it. This is the real deal. Burnt amber color, big head, moderate carbonation. Mild toasted malt flavors, lots of sweet caramel, and just enough hops to provide a clean finish. Not Germany’s oldest Oktoberfest and not the world’s best perhaps, but this is a solid example of exactly what the style should be like. Refreshing, easy to drink, and perfect with salty, smoky meat.

stevoj (3718) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2015
On tap at Prost! Pours out a dark cola brown with off white fluffy head. Sweet, nutty malts dominate aroma and taste. Sweetness, but a biting bitter finish. Slightly different than the norm, but pretty solid.

Aggiebob (639) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle. Clear coppery brown with a beige head. Sweet malty flavor. Medium bodied.

@ Korinten 15-9-5: Ganska blek smörig och helt ordinär. Inget att skriva hem om. Ungefär som den vanliga

When the leaves start turning brown outside, this is exactly the type of beer I want to be drinking. Light enough to have a few while watching football with friends, yet just hefty enough to make you feel warm and fuzzy when it’s cold out.
