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.

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.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 25, 2004
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.

TBone (15708) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2004
Bottled (label: Spaten München, BB 11/2004)
Beautiful clear golden with decent white head, which is rocky and foamy, good amount of lace. Hoppy, a bit soapy aroma. Nice sweetish malty body with late hoppy bitterness. Easy to drink.

Pours yellow with a white head. Has a light aroma with a nice light body flavor. Overall a nice brew.

blatantdream (78) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Pretty good example of a light lager. Golden caramel colored and easy to drink. Flavors not that complex but is smooth and full bodied. Aroma not really noticeable but I still like this beer and buy it pretty often.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Straw yellow, white head. Grain and light floral hop aroma. A little up front bitterness but quickly gives way to muted soft malt sweetness. Light in body.

Gmku (300) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Not a bad lager, but not as flavorful or clean mouthfeel as Weihenstephaner. I find the malt, while distinctively German in taste and aroma, rather light, even for the style.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 17, 2004
pale yellow color, clear, with a pure white head. Aroma is very faint, almost non-existant, a little yeasty. Flavor is, well, there’s not much flavor. It’s not a bad brew, its just not really there. It’s like the angel food cake of beer. You know your drinking something, but it doesn’t seem like anything is in your mouth.

Just a plain tasting pilsener to me, not bad, but not great. A typical German tasting brew, somewhat light though.
