Bottle poured into a beer stein

Rich copper brown. Foamy two finger cap settles into a gentle layer. Slight lacings on the glass

Aroma of sweet caramel malty goodness.

Smooth malty , semi sweet delicious Marzen style beer. Light mouthfeel , no bitter aftertaste . Delicious.

I love September when Oktoberfest beers appear. I try as I many as I can but Spaten as a true Munich style is one that is always stocked in my fridge. Prosit!

This beer is a true representation of the classic Marzen style. Once you pop open the bottle you're immediately hit with a delicious malty nose. When it comes to taste, I'm reminded of a really good pilsener with a delicious multi-sweetness to accompany it. Mouth feel is pretty good, with notes of sweetcorn as it passes through the pallet. All and all, a great Oktoberfest brew. Cheers!

Had on draught in a mini pilsner!

Dark amber brown, three finger taupe head, fast reducing

Smells of bread, malt, wet grain, and a light bit of biscuits at the end

Tastes: bready and malty, perfect for a winter's night rather than fall.

Mouthfeel: thick

Overall, I'd have this again without delay.
