9/9/2012.. The beer is ESPECIALLY good this year! Its the best batch since 2006. This is quickly becoming my favorite beer of all time!
Not much to say other then this is in my lengthy experience of beer drinking, one of the finest beers EVER...
It IS my favorite...
Every year around the end of August I get very excited about the return of my favorite beer.
I can only say that I HOPE the brewery of this fine product does not cheapen its nature for greater profits...and just CHARGE more as I will gladly pay it..
Read the EXCELLENT subsequent reviews of this beer..I can do not better then what has already been written.

Got a brown .5L bottle (cage/cork) in Munich back during Oktoberfest. God I love how cheap beer is in Germany.
Pours a dusky/tawny color with a creamy colored head which dissipated rapidly. It seemed like the bottle was under an immense amount of pressure when I uncorked it -- maybe I messed something up.
Either way, the color is unlike any other Märzen I've seen -- it's beautiful.
The smell is what's been missing from modern Oktoberfest styles as well. It smells delectably malty and toasty.
The taste is exactly how I want every märzen to taste. It actually has a solid malt backbone, some hoppy bitterness to back it up, with a light touch of alcohol.
Its a bit heavier than any other I've tried, including several at Oktoberfest itself. Carbonation appears constant and steady in the glass, producing a wonderful balance between too much and too little.
I know I'm a young'un, and I haven't even tried plenty of STYLES of beer, but right now I could drink this and only this the rest of my life and be very happy.

If I had to drink one beer in 1L quantities, this would be it.
Pours an orange color with a nice white 1 inch head. Cabronation is nice. beautiful looking Oktoberfest.
Smells sweet, and airy. Lots of adjunct grains and caramel malt. And even legit caramel.
Tastes fantastic. Very light body, and the caramel sweetness is really the highlight. That sweetness is almost candy smoothness, which makes it very drinkable. Very light and airy, but not to a fault.
This is oktoberfest at its best. Almost perfect for style. PS I was told Spaten is year round, so minus points for Spaten for screwing Oktobefest up.
