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.

Sweet hoppy aroma, light yellow, small white head. Mild hops with a tiny malt backing. Light bodied, fair.

Not a bad beer. Light golden color and a so-so balance of flavor with a hint of sweetness. The head dissolves quickly. Nothing special.

Dumb presentation and poor nose. There is little head and the flavour is soapy. The balance is not all that prominent and presents with a too thin palate

1 Pint+ bottle. Another big effervescent head on a darker yellow drink. Light "beer" aroma. Yes it does taste like a sweet macro with hops and a hint of alcohol in the finish.

(12 oz bottle) Please tell me this beer is brewed for export only; If the Germans actually drink this shit, it'll be a huge blow to my perception of their demand for quality beer on an every day basis; It's better than the likes of Budweiser, but not by much; This beer is very light flavored, mildly sweet and grainy, lightly bitter, with a short-lived finish; The beer has a fairly well carbonated mouthfeel and is tangy on the palate initially; The vaguely sweet and grainy nose is pretty mild and not very enjoyable; Very pale yellow in color and crystal clear; The white head is quite small on the pour, quickly fading to a bubbly rim and small island of sheen in the middle; No lacing

Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head that quickly disapates. Aroma is of malt, slightly sour but not unpleasantly so. Flavor is sweet and malty with a slightly bitter hop finish and some yeasty, bready tones. A very nice beer.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2004
Aroma is strongly hops, herbs and light fruity. Pale golden color, white head, good lace. Sweet, herbal, grass, light, bit dry finish. Bit too sweet and could use some bitterness but overall a very nice example of the style.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 A light golden brew with a small white head with a straw/wheat aroma that just made you think refreshing thoughts. Taste was light and delicate with a nice light maltiness and a good hop bitter balance toward the end.

bierkoning (12589) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2004
Malty, flowery urine-like aroma. Malty falvor with some hops. Floewery and a bit oily. Slight hopbitter and cologne aftertaste. Disappointing.

Pours a classic golden color. Sweet grain aroma with a hint of hoppiness. Good smooth poundable brew. Not a ton of flavor, but what is there is good.
