About the Brewer

Spaten brewing company is located in Munich, Germany, and has been a leader in exporting German beer for more than a century.  They have branched out all over Europe as far as Scandinavia and Spain, and have branched out to the United States as well.  Spaten’s trademark brew is their lager, but they also brew a dark beer called Dunkle and a German double bock beer called Optimator, however you don’t see those two around in stores/bars very often.

About the Beer

Spaten Oktoberfest is a malt liquor that is amber is color.  It is a medium bodied beer with a roasted malt flavor with just the right amount of hops.  It has a typical Oktoberfest taste profile, but unlike most US-style Oktoberfest brews, Spaten’s has a slightly dry finish which makes it very pleasant and easy to drink.  Of all the Oktoberfest brews out there on the shelves, this is definitely one of the best.
