COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: Water, Barley Malt, Hops & Hop extract.
Sold as Münchner Hell in Germany, München in the UK and Premium in North America.
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.

I asked some regulars what was the wimpiest beer at Rich O’s and was told it was Spaten Lager. I had one of these to field-test it for my sister and it was indeed wimpy. I wish I could think of a better descriptor.

Sigue la ley de pureza alemana. Fuerte. Sabor a Malta y bastante aroma. No muy Carbonatada, con espuma normal.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Bottle. Very light straw gold body with a thick loose white two finger head. Nose is skunky as all get out. First taste that jumps out is corn. Very strong adjunct taste. Very sweet with a cardboard like malty flavor. Mouthfeel is very watery. Finish is sweet and sticks to your tongue. This is just a little too sweet for me. Not an awful beer, but not a good one either.

A slightly sweet taste. Otherwise your average euro lager, slightly better than most. On tap @ the Essen Haus, Madison, WI.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2005 Looks like an ordinary lager, but tastes somewhat nicer and fresher. Great summer beer.

Gigantic head even with a modest pour. No distinct tastes but hints of citrus and bitterness from the hops.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - JUN 27, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2004 Had this one from a small keg. Not too bad...very smooth palate. Taste reminiscent of Ayinger Brau-Weisse, because it is so light and even...shall I say...sweet? Looks nice too, with a good head--be careful pouring this one. The head will catch up to you if you’re not to careful. Definitely worth a try.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 26, 2004
This is a fair European mass-produced lager. Although not as full or flavourful as Warsteiner, Spaten is about the second or third best readily available keg around here, really...with the exception of Warsteiner or Guinness I guess. Naturally, it tastes better from the keg than from the bottle. I know this without even having it from the bottle. It’s common sense.

watery gold body with a white head. Smells light malt, sugar, german hops, orange peel. Sweet clove taste, orange/lemon creme and malts. Decent beer.
