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.

Clear, pale golden color. I sampled this at Der Rathskeller in Indianapolis. Smooth, almost flat taste. Good pale lager.

caesar (5500) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2003
Clear yellow color, short dying head. Typical pils aroma of hops, some grains. Smooth taste, grainy, hopbitter. Very nice german brew actually.

jerohen (2049) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2003
Light blond coloured lager, almost no palate and quite some carbonation. Bit hoppy and malty. Quite ok.

egajdzis (5486) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Sampled at the Ludwig's Garten Oktoberfest party in Philadelphia... Poured a dark golden color with not much of a head at all. Malty aroma, with a slightly carbonated, skunky taste and a sticky mouthfeel. It did leave a nice lacing, although this was a weak beer.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Golden light color. Very malty aroma. Semi-sweet flavor with hint of hops. Reminds me of a Grolsch. Not a very good well travleled beer. Still refreshing on a hot day.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2003
The smell is horrible. Definite skunk malt liquor. The flavor is very light, as is the color. By drinking this beer without smelling you are doing yourself a favor.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Nothing special, but a smooth beer with a nice aftertaste. Lots of head, but that can be reduced with a little nose greese.

WabashMan (1016) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Nice color and fluffy white head start off this one. Aroma is fairly typical of the style. Flavor lacks in any real distinctive character, and is fairly unremarkable...not bad, just not worth writing home about. An average lager.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - SEP 5, 2003
Golden straw color and medium head. Malty and bready aroma, some sweetish notes in the taste and good bitter finish.

Just the thing to put out the fire of that Golden Monkey I just had. Nice frothy white head out of the bottle, like beaten egg whites. The appearance is slightly lighter than your typical Pilsner. The flavor is well placed and very drinkable. Somewhat sweet on the finish. My kind of brew!
