Poured a orange-brown color, little tan head, little lace. Tasted very much like the Paulaner Oktoberfest, in that it is an incredibly sweet and caramelly. A bit acidic, some floral hops that convey into the palate a dandelion flavor. Not bad for a style that is not one of my favorites.

Bottle. Tasty lager with a bit more sweet malt than normal - gets a bit grainy toward the finish. This blond Oktoberfest is not as interesting as the dark Oktoberfest/Marzen style. MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2003 Nice gooey malt. Reddish-munich malt hugh. Low hop. Fresh and well conditioned, the way it ought to be. Up there with the best of Germany and not yet dumbed down like many are becoming. Very drinkable, but a bit more to the chewey side. If you like O'fests, you'd be hard pressed to find anything wrong with this one. Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - SEP 3, 2003
Dark golden with nice white fluffy head. Malt, malt and again malt from the head to the bottom. Perfectly drinkable. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Clear amber appearance with a good sized head. Toasty, malt aroma. Fruity, malty taste with a tiny bit of sweetness. Smooth, creamy finish.

beautiful copper/auburn color with great head. I love spaten's bottles because they fill a weizen glass with a 2 fingered head right to the top, pefect pour everytime. This one has a excellent malt profile in the aroma, you can just chew on the munich malts they're so apparent. Flavor is medium bodied but really easy to drink. A very clean fresh mouthfeel and overall a well made oktoberfest. DragonStout (1416) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Oranngy tint with a thick foamy head.Has tastes of malt with a nice clean finish.Not too bitter. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2003
A quite yumy Oktoberfest. Lighty mouthfeel, medium bodied and a deep orange hue shines through, with a creamy little head. Doughy, with some nice malty sweetness, with a nice balance of hops shining through but never taking dominance over the other. Suttree (6361) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Copper/Orange, thin but sturdy head. Watery, grainy but clean aroma. Bready flavor, with just of touch of sweetness. Seems a bit watery on the palate. adrenalin112 (57) - Lake Forest, California, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Medium characteristics all across the board. Sweet, yet roasty. Malt balanced with hops. Good looking head & nice golden color. One of if not the best oktoberfest.
