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."

Drank in a great 1 litre stein in Tulsa, OK of all places. Light in color but a sharp, citrus taste with some hops detected. Clean and slightly bitter finish...nice beer

Very rich malts, almost oxidized flavor, comes off very earthy and faintly musty. Smooth caramel flavor, very heavy on the palate. Hops are light, allowing the malts to carry through, the flavor stays sweet from start to finish. Felt like it lacked a bit of carbonation so it might be hard to have a few of these due to how heavy it sits.

Lilith (242) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 28, 2007
Clear, light-golden colored. Big frothy head. Sweet aroma, hoppy, fruity, slightly citrusy. Flavor is fruity, too, smooth, flowery, robust--provided by malts--with a bitter end.

yngwie (15762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2007
Bottle. Quite pale golden, clear beer, with a nice carbonation and a big white head. Quite grainy aroma, but it balances neatly with a fruity hoppiness. The flavor is even more fruitier, but with the grain and pale malts from the aroma. Quite dryish mouthfeel, medium body. Quite bitter, yet fruity, finish for a beer as pale as this. A nice and easy-to-drink oktoberfestbier. And so much more interesting than all the pale lagers flooding the market. (070606)

I happen to like Spaten’s beer. Except for their lager, which is tasteless and watery, I think that their products are of high quality. They are also readily available. To me, this is a very good Oktoberfest. A very solid beer.

Great brew, I love SPATEN. Always has a great blend and taste. Not as good as OPTIMATOR, but a great beer to drink all night.

Grainy bready and a let down. Page 437 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 246 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.
