Oktoberfest Beer, created in 1872, is the world’s first Oktoberfest (Ur-Maerzen) beer, brewed for the greatest folk festival in the world. No Oktoberfest may begin until the Mayor of Munich taps the first keg of Spaten Oktoberfestbier. Amber in color. This medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavor with the perfect amount of hops. Having a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.
