Spaten Oktoberfestbier from a brown glass bottle and poured into a standard pint glass.

A light, clear, amber colored beer. The Spaten poured with 3/4" of tan head that retained pretty well (about a quarter way through the brew) and left a ring of lacing around the top of the glass. The smell was of a sweet maltiness, predominately. The flavor is of a nice, malty sweetness. Medium bodied with that medium sweetness, almost syrupy.

Notes: Pretty darn drinkable, and an Oktoberfestbier for the season. A pleasure.

A coppery brown brew that pours a nice head that leaves a nice lacing down my pint. A sweet smelling malt with a similar taste that finishes with a slight bitter hop. Has a decent body resulting with a fairly full mouthfeel. A fairly smooth marzen that I wouldn't be shy to try again.

Re-Review 12-3-04:
Poured a very nice head again. Noticing more of an old or musty smell to it this time around. Still a very smooth but mellow taste and has a decent mouthfeel. Nothing special but still an enjoyable beer to try.
