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.

One of the better Marzens I’ve had; really smooth, malty but not overly sweet. From a bottle into a pilsner glass; golden colored with a thick white fluffy head. Medium-bodied.

Pours a beautiful color and smells great; all I can taste is caramel and spice overtones, and some other (unable to describe) aspect that just made this malt liquor mostly undrinkable. Maybe I got a bad bottle at the grocery store, but if not I can’t see myself drinking this again.

Draft. From notes. On the sweet side. Bready and caramel malt dominate. Probably my least favorite style here. Meh, drinkable.

Not bad, lighter fare, and drinkable. Light smoke. Bubbly yellow. On tap at MacGregor Amherst.

Bottle, pours amber with a white head, light sweet taste with caramel, malt, and some spice, light hop finish, decent but I think Optimator is better.

Maybe i had a bad bottle because it was skunky. First had this on tap. Would not reccomend it served any other way.

Beer: Spaten Octoberfest Type: Ur-Märzen Color: Light Brown Taste: Smooth, caramel malt flavor, dry Comments: Ur Märzen is probably one of my favorite styles of beer. Spaten tends to always make quality beer and this is one of them. However, it does lack a little something. It's no Spaten Optimator and far from the one for which all others are judged Mittenwald Brewery Ur Märzen.

eRock_2013 (208) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Not your average Munich Marzen. Features a Exceptionally dark amber color for an Oktoberfest beer, with a standard malty aroma. I found the taste to be enjoyably more complex for a marzen, with roasted malt notes, slight herbal hoppy contrast, and a sweet finish and aftertaste. Smooth enough, medium bodied. Authentic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Decent example of an authentic German style marzen. Light colored but with strong caramel flavors.
