2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 brown bottle with a foil sealed top. Pours clear pale golden with a medium sized frothy off-white head that settled quickly. Aroma of wheat bread, grains and mineral notes. Flavour of wheat bread, cereal, caramel and a hint of alcohol. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, slightly slick texture and average carbonation. Overall Spaten Oktoberfestbier is okay, slightly harsh and unbalanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Classic Oktoberfestbier with snow white head and deep golden blonde colour, spritzy carbonation and light but clean and crisp, soft caramelly and bready malty profile, nice grassy hoppiness, bitterish finish with floral hops, soft mouthfeel. Goes down really well, which I imagine comes in handy if you are at the Oktoberfest trying to compete with the Germans by pouring down 50 cl volumes of this all day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Pours clear golden with a white head that quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing. Sweet & malty with hay, toast, sulphur and hints of toffee and yeast. Metallic and grassy hops. Light but balanced metallic bitterness in the after taste. A bit cloying malt sweetness but a quite crisp finish with some residual sweetness and hints of gooseberry.
