Bronzish color, with a decent off-white head that didn't stick around long. Bit of a toasted and floral aroma, guessing from the malts and hops respectively.
Taste brings out the toasted malts and the hop characteristics as well, but weakly. The taste just doesn't seem to be very much into this beer. It's a bit thin and watery, too.
I liked this one last year, but I'm not too impressed this year. After ImBev's buyout, I'm not looking forward to what's gonna happen to this brew next year.

This beer, once you pop the cap, reminds me of Peroni beer - it has the same bready, yeasty smell on the nose. However, it is heavier, and a bit sweeter - not my liking. I made a session out of this brew, trying to study it from all angles, and since it is a marzen, meaning it is brewed between the months of September through April, I was reminded of how its German heritage really gave it a good quality taste but a head that faints quickly after pour. I was astonished to see the words malt liquor on the label of this beer, and was thoroughly disappointed by this description. It is definitely worthier than the Malt Liquors out there, but hey we can't all be skeptics all the time. Would I try this beer again, maybe, if it was free - There are plenty of German brews to be imbibed, and therefore, I will be seeking a better session than Spaten. Overall ok, but nothing to really implore you to try again.
