2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s amazing that I love Franziskaner so much, cuz the Doppelbock and this left much to be desired (and this on draft, nonetheless). Somewhat off aroma, some grass, some earthiness. The pour was nice an amber with a nice thick head that thinned out but laced well. The flavor was bready and somewhat spiced and the alcohol was detectable. Some grass in there too (not my cup of tea). Mouthfeel was fairly standard.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 Light in color, considering the malt accent of this beer. Clean, firm, smooth, good for a session beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"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."

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
