Continuing to finish off some of my fall and holiday brews. Poured at 45 Degrees. Nice honey amber color. Whitish Head. Taste of malts and touch sweetness and a bit of that hop finish. A nice drinkable beer, that very much represents the Octoberfest style.

Maybe the best overall beer that I have ever had. Try to seek it out (not that easy to find) when it's in-season.

Delicious beer. Caramel color, very subtle smell, sweet to the palate with slightly bitter finish. Off-white head resulting from the first pour into my favorite weekend glass. Part of a sampler. I would purchase a six pack if available or order a pint in my local establishment.

L: Copper color with a 0.25" off-white head at start. Transparent.
S: Light smell of caramel and malt.
T: Crisp and clean with a slight biting finish. Flavor reminds me of malt extract.
F: mild carbonation, like very fine champagne bubbles. No discernible alcohol hit.

This is a pleasant, inoffensive beer. Probably would go great with food like wings, pork, and pizza. Of course, German or Polish food like sausage with mustard and soft pretzels would be ideal. Despite being an Oktoberfest beer, I could see this being refreshing enough for summer, but filling enough for the late fall and winter.

Fitting that my 50th beer on here be a Spaten. My German grandpa used to have my buy this brand for him all the time. I have had all their beers, pretty much, except this one. Very nice deep amber color. Not much of a smell. Taste is simple: caramel/bread/malt. But wow...is this drankable. There is not one single hint of alcohol even though it's 5.9%. This could get me way too wasted way too quick....

Authentic look, smell, taste. Malts are more caramelized than their lager, providing this brew with a medium amber shade, but not so heavily roasted as to leave any trace of burnt flavor. Hops are not overly prominent, but provide a spicy middle bite. Not as fresh tasting as some domestics, but no wet-dog aftertaste, either.

Non-descript hops predominate over maltiness in this beer. Not my favorite example of this style.
