Had a pint of this on tap at Willimantic Brewing in Willimantic, CT. Red and semi-cloudy with a very subtle taste to it... a bit lacking. However, it does hint at a beautiful roasted nut flavor with a great strong bitter aftertaste. The flavor of this unfortunately becomes a bit muddled as you continue drinking. This is a good beer, but Spaten makes better, and while I would still recommend this, it's not the best Spaten i've ever had.

Serving type: on-tap

3.44/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
