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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

On tap at Der Steinkeller. Golden body with a thin white head. Aroma is light and sweet. Flavor is pleasant, light sweet fruits and a touch of spice. A festive concoction, indeed.
