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: 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.

motelpogo (7054) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2003
UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 looked as expected. plenty of sweet malt up-front and then some strange berry bitterness-tartness. a little water. as zieglerbrau helles on tap in dachau. typical sweet hay aroma. very pale with very light bitterness and a hint of raw sugar. standard helles made to seem a bit better by being very fresh

Very light golden color with a white head. The taste is light and fresh. Malts and hops, doesn't give enough taste in my opinion.

This can eat my pussy. If I want to buy Heineken I don't need to go to some swanky pub in the rocks. I hated this beer bad and had to ask if others wanted to finish my bottle. This beer hurt not only my tastebuds, but my feelings...

(bottled). Brilliant pale gold with a grainy malt nose & noble hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice maltiness, moderate carbonation, and a pleasant hop bitterness that lingers and balances the maltiness to a slighly dry finish. Perfectly balanced like the style demands and highly recommended!

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2003
Light golden colour. Quite sweet with a medium bitter finish. Decent body, but all in all nothing special.

BeerRunner (144) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Very good German beer. Nice head, tasty flavor. Nice, hoppy flavor for this style. I like it. It's quite good.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2003
Classic golden color with a small white head that diminishes fairly quickly. A steady stream of tiny bubbles keeps a thin foam at the top of the glass. Rich lager aroma, malt, a bit of honey and floral hops. Nice initial acidic pucker, malts well up to balance the middle then the hop bitterness returns for a lingering, slightly herby finish. Light body buoyed by perfect level of carbonation. Nice, drinkable German beer.

Very light taste, deceptively strong. Nice clean flavor with a light touch on the hops.
