I poured this beer into a pint glass, it has a nce amber color body with a nice 1"finger head that hangs around for a while. The smell is of caramel and grains, with some sweetness to it. The taste is of caramel and has some sweetness to it, i don't get any hops notes at all. The mouth feel is smooth and well carbonated. Overall this is a ok marzen.

So disappointed that its year round. boo Spaten.

Pours a nice amber orange color with a nice white head. Very bubbly.

Smell is not that impressive. It smells like a decent German lager. Decently smooth and light.

Taste isnt all that impressive for an Oktoberfest. The nice caramel smoothness that Ive come to expect from a Marzen is subdued. An ale crispness comes from no where takes over and dominates until about halfway through the beer. After a while, it becomes caramely smooth from then on out.
