very nice, moderately malty aroma; small creamy head that dissipates quickly; medium amber color; slightly bitter, long-lasting finish

Aroma is malty with a hint of fruit. Appearance is a dark orange with good lacing and head. Flavor is malty with some spice and fruit. Slightly bitter and a noticeable sourness. Palate is a little thin. Odd I found this in July being a fall seasonal and all. I guess this has been chillin at the store for a while. Not a great one but certainly a good one.

Very nice dark amber with a good body and smooth taste. It's not as hearty as some Oktoberfests, but certainly pleasant enough.

Ah, tasty. Rather funky in apperance but nothing unpleasant. A bit spicy, perhaps? Very subtle hops peek through a pleasantly malty brew. Nice medium-light body and almost buttery mouthfeel. Very nice sweet-then-dry finish. I expected less out of this and was very happily surprised.

Amber color with small white head. Thin bodied. Sweet malty taste with some fruity flavor. A little hop bitterness also.

From the Sharp Edge European Beerfest: I was pleasently suprised by this oktoberfest. This is actually a marzen beer rather then a fall marking gimick.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2003
A tastey product from the good folks at Spaten. Solid medium body that balances the hops just right with the malt. There is a touch of the sweetness in the finish which makes it so good.

Abundant head. Malt and fruit notes on a moderately bitter background; a hint of spices. Rather short aftertaste. Nice, but I found it a bit thin.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 13, 2003
Heavy wheat aspect in aroma and flavor. Deep amber, fairly light bodied. Close to no head. There was a good balance between the hops and malt. Definitely more flavorful than others I've had representing this style.

This is my favorite of the Spaten line, but I really don't think much of any of the Spaten products I've had yet. This beer was a little too bitter for my tastes.
