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.

Aroma of corn tortillas. Reminds me of walking in to a Mexican Grocery Store. Tastes okay but had a tough time getting past the nose. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (148) - 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.

DSG (5036) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle. Crystal clear amber with a white head. Aroma of malt, toast, bread, some caramel and light vegetal hint. Sweetish flavor, malty, toasty, with a bit of caramel, bready notes and a drier finish with a light bitter herbal note. Medium-bodied. Easy-drinking.

keith0718 (340) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - NOV 10, 2013
The Paulaner and the Ayinger Oktoberfests are indistinguishable. This beer has a more pronounced toasty caramel flavor and a diminished carbonation bite.

EdInSaltLake (523) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Lager yeast, lightly sweet malt, and skunky aroma. Sugary sweet malt flavor, green apple-ish fruit, lager yeast. Some skunked flavor (less than the aroma).

Definitely need to rate this again--especially if it’s not in a green bottle.

By far my favorite Oktoberfest. Pours a beautiful clear dark amber. Rich caramel and toasted malts. Nicely balanced.
