This beer is our speciality. In 1894 Spaten became the first brewery in Munich to produce this brand of light lager. Golden in color with a well-balanced hop-flavor. The full rounded body is a superb balance between hops and a malty sweetness.

Bottle. Sweet, yet strong, hoppy aroma. Thin white head. Pale straw-gold color. Flavor is lightly hoppy, with a strong bitter bite at the end and aftertaste. Carbonation is quite strong.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Strong, pleasant aroma like club soda with a twist of lime. Tall but brief head but ok lacing. Color is very light and sort of cheap looking, could pass for MGD (and unfortunately has the same gritty aftertaste). Taste might not possess the elements of a great connoiseur brew, but if you’re in the mood for a beer like MGD that packs slightly more of a punch, you should give this a try - if being overpriced is not an issue.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Straw yellow body, medium white head. Weak aroma of some malts. Crisp flavor, but quite thin, weak and watery.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2004
This pours a nice golden color with a sizeable white head and good carbonation. The aroma is mild, mainly of sweet malts. The flavor is a good crisp malt with a hit of the hop bitterness in the finish. S’okay.

jgb9348 (5610) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Light golden coloured body with a frothy white head. Aroma of pale malt and little else. Light to Medium-bodied; Small fragrant hop character in the taste with more of an emphasis on good quality malt. Aftertaste shows some distinct malt character with a bubbly feeling throughout. Overall, a nice beer to try (although it is very common) and worth drinking. I sampled this beer on draught as ’Spaten Munchner Hell’ on draught on 07-June-2004 in Sydney, Australia at the Lowenbrau restaurant on ’The Rocks’.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Yellow color with a small white head. Mild pale aroma. Taste was thin and reminiscent of American pale lagers. Thin watery body. Very disappointing when compared to Spaten Optimator.

Nate (4171) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2004
As Spaten Bière Blonde Premium, French packaging. Light malts, some sweetness, with decent hop profile. Clean and crisp aroma. Pale blond clear, effervescence, with foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts rather bland, with mild malts and grain. Low acidity. Hops bitterness comes in at the finish, with decent bitter dry after. A decent lager.

Clear pale golden body with a white fully lasting head. Aroma is of soft hops and grainy malt. Taste is fairly light and easy to drink, malt with a mild hop bitterness.
