, Spaten-Franziskaner-Brau, Munich, Germany, 5.90% ABV
The Oktoberfest Ur-Marzen from Spaten-Franziskaner-Brau in Munich, Germany pours out a brownish copper in color with good clarity and a one finger, dense, off-white head that sticks around. On the nose aromas of lightly roasted grains, mild spicy hops and a little dark fruit. In the mouth flavors of dark dried fruit that are slightly sweet, husky grain, roasted malt and a drying, spicy hop flavor. Light side of medium bodied. Decent lacing. Moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is somewhat slippery. The finish is fairly short and had a little more sweetness towards the end.
