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.

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!

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2003
(on draught at The Bishops Arms, Göteborg)Pale golden with a steady head. Classic standard lager aroma and flavor of some corn, but still quite good. Slightly sweet and bitter.

Blond color. Light bread and malt aroma. A residual sweetness; lacking of character and hop.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 20, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2003 Aroma is lightly malt with large skunkness to it. Flavor is lightly hoppy with a light body. If only it weren't for the skunk this would be a good helles.<P>ReRate (brown bottle):Aroma is much less skunky as before and is quite balanced now. I really enjoyed this crisp clean lager as a good malty finish of the night.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2006 Straw body with lazy carbonation and a clean white head. Aroma of buttery, nutty malt, fragrant hops, and sea water. Flavor of hop spice, flowers and some doughy malt. Crisp, easy palate, but a little spritzy. Lacks subtle depth of flavor, but a solid Helles.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Has the usual Eurolager look and smell (which isn't necessarily a bad thing.) It tastes much better than Heineken or Beck's though. Overall, a good and very drinkable beer.
