COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the German version of the beer, described by Jackson in the 2000 Pocket Beer Book as "much paler (than Oktoberfest-Marzen in the US), golden, albeit still with a creamy aroma and pleasant malt accent."

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 Light in color, considering the malt accent of this beer. Clean, firm, smooth, good for a session beer.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2006
(Bottled) Golden colour with a firm white head. Malty nose with citrus, pineapple (yes, rather unexpected), hints of butter and toffee and a slight bitterness. Same aromas in the flavour, with the fruit leaning more towards apricots. Malty finish with more fruity than dry bitterness, rather short. Not as I expected, but still nice.

Skinnyviking (7129) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2006
Bottle. Small white but very quickly disappearing head. Clear golden body. Malt aroma and surprisingly sweet flavor. Hops and berries.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 17, 2006
"my first true nonamerican Oktoberfest. Poured a dark orange, with nice lacing. Aroma was of malts and a hint of fruit, dark. Flavoe was of malts with a hint of spice. Was a little thin overall but flavor made up for it."

Gr0ve (2140) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2005
500 ml bottle. Clear pale golden. Thick persistent head. Highly carbonated. Very little aroma hops. Not much aroma at all actually, except for some gentle malt aroma. Refreshing mouthfeel. Noticeable hop bitterness. A bit too dull given the high alcohol content. I’d rather drink something else during Oktoberfest.

Quite a nice beer from Spaten. Although its alcohol percentage is not that high, you really taste the bitterness and strenght. Fine oktoberfestbier.

Sregnar35 (974) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2005
On tap at Mahars. A very thin, octoberfest, with a nice, yet subtle flavor. Slight vanilla and musty malt bring it together nice, just a bit bland though.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle. This was one of the beers that got me taking a serious look at what I was drinking. Aroma is good a woody vanilla. Nice golden color and white head. Flavor is good nice malted flavor, sugar and slight grass. Palate is good, easy drinker and finish just a light bitter. Overall it’s become easier to get and prices are better too. Not a bad offering.
