Clear medium brown with a decent but foamy head.
Lingering aftertaste of medium roast malts.
Near medium body and carbonation.
Somehow managed to taste just a touch stale.

Transfer from BA review on 9-24-12 -
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a lighter orange amber color with a one finger white head. The head faded relatively fast to leave a lighter level of lacing.
Smell – Notes of roasted bready malt are the heaviest in this brew. Mixed with this aroma is a lighter caramel and a light earthy hop aroma.
Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready flavor and a good dose of caramel sweetness. A nuttiness as well as a light herbal flavor then come to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. In the end the herbal hop is lost but only to give way to a more earthy flavor, which when combined with the bready flavors leave a crisper taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The creaminess of the beer was on the rather average side with a carbonation level that was quite average as well. Both made it rather drinkable and are rather fitting for the style.
Overall - It was easy drinking and had some pretty nice flavors, but nothing too exceptional.

Not too bad, but was hoping for more flavour out of a higher alcohol bier. Has a little bit of a raspy taste. A little darker than normal Sparten Hell. Very little head retention from the pour.

Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Caramel malts, roasted malts, and some wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very enjoyable oktoberfest bier.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It had a dark brunt orange amber color which is very different from the light golden Spaten Oktoberfest that I remember enjoying a few years ago. The body had good clarity and the head was thin and faded fast leaving very little head or lace. The aroma was light and had floral hops with a slight skunk popping out though sweet caramel and candy like malt notes. (My wife noted that is was like smartees candy.) It had a sweet candy like malt flavor with some mild floral hops. Hop bitterness was very light and coved up buy the sweetness of the malt. It finishes on the sweet side with hint of grassy hops. It was about medium bodied with a smooth texture and light carbonation.

Huge white head, clear bright-golden colour. Very fruity and hoppy aroma with honey notes. Spicy taste and a lasting, bitter palate. Good one!
