3.53/5  rDev -1.7%

12 oz. Euro-green bottle,

A: Pours a beautiful dark amber colour, nice to see, small 2-finger dissipates quickly though, but the colour is really nice.

S: Typical malt smell, very sweet, some bready character, not a lot of hops in this one though.

T: Very sweet malty, almost maple flavour, kind of over the top, but sort of in a good way, there were some times I liked it, but some times it was a little much. Hop flavour is slight, but some earthy notes are there in the background.

M: Typical German lager feel, light and smooth, medium-bodied overall, but has a nice briskness on the palate.

D: A pretty good German Oktoberfest beer, Spaten makes very good representations of typical German styles and they did another one with this beer. There are some faults, but overall, it is very good for its style.

Light amber/dark golden with a medium sized off-white head. Smells of gingerbread cookie malt with a minor spicy hop presence. Starts off with rich, toasty malts with a touch of spice. Finish is a tad bitter. Not great, but then again, I'm not a huge marzen fan. I'm more of a maibock guy.

Pours a medium amber color with an eggshell head. Smell is grainy with some sweet maltiness. Taste is crisp and malty with a little hope bite to it and a caramelized flavor. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall a fine drinking beer with nice flavor. A fairly typical Oktoberfest

Pours a straight-ahead amber with a thick head of foam. Tons of impressive effervescence, too, which is a neat touch. Impressive tree-line and loopy lace.

Aroma is crisp and lager-grainy, simply put.

Taste is equally as crisp and malty, even a little sweet but still well-balanced. I get some toastiness, some toffee, and plenty of flavor packed into here. Overall, as easy-to-drink Oktoberfest that I can see being perfect for bierstubes or Oktoberfest celebrations.
