Further to S. Shurpakov et al. (ATel #4805) we report the spectroscopic classification of the transient MASTER OT J133253.32+355733.3. A spectrum obtained at the 4.2m William Herschel Telescope (+ISIS) (range 350-950nm) on 2013 Feb. 13.26 UT and fitted using SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666, 1024) shows reasonable matches to Type-Ia supernovae between -5 days and peak magnitude at z=0.06.
