Day #255 – Spaten Oktoberfest Ur-Märzen

September 13, 2011

It’s certainly Oktoberfest season here at the Ginger Man! They are featuring a different Oktoberfest beer and accompanying glass each week. Got a mug for today!!

Spaten Oktoberfest Ur-Märzen


Spaten is based in Munich, Germany. This is their Oktoberfest at 5.9%. It is true of the region and the style for this type of beer. So we should get a pretty good look at what Oktoberfest beers are supposed to be.

This beer pours a clear copper/amber color with a light amount of head and carbonation. Looks pretty cool in my new mug though.

Aroma is malty sweet. Sugary and caramel notes with a nice touch of grain.

Flavor matches this. Malty sweet with a caramel/brown sugar backbone. Finishes sweet but maintains a bit of grain. Pretty good and certainly an easy drinker! This almost goes down TOO easy. 😉
