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.

Too watered down for me. I might as well be drinking a Hurricane...but I like the packaging. I guess that counts for somthing.

Green bottle, but not skunked. It pours a clear, golden yellow color with a small, lingering head. The aroma is slightly malty with a typical lager sweetness. Light bodied, with a nice malty sweet flavor and a crisp, hop finish. The flavor seems to turn more bland as you drink more of it. This is a fairly tasty lager, smooth and easy to drink.

Had on tap. Seemed a little watered down. Nothing to really grab your mouth and tell it there is beer inside.

Pretty good. I used to work for a man that was from Austria and he would only drink Spaten and Yuengling Lager. Slightly skunky and it's light. A little too light for my taste.

Nice looking European light lager with the typical slightly airy, malty nose. Just a hint of the import skunk we get in America, but still a pleasant enough mellow, refreshing lager.

I'm off and on with this beer. Bought it yesterday because it was 80 degrees here in La Mesa. Tastes better drinking it out of the bottle rather than pouring it in a glass. Slightly skunky with malty flavors. Well balanced.

I really didnt' like this beer from a bottle. Much better and less skunky coming from a tap. I prefer Spaten Optimator from this brewer.

Solid Helles, not as good as Paulaner though. But saying that it is still good.

Nice light gold color. Not too hoppy, balanced well with the malt. Very clean light lager.
