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: 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 (12284) - 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.

mjg74 (2988) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 14, 2004
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.

envane (569) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Yellow-gold colour with a big but rapidly dimishing head. Sweet with apple and honey malts. Enough noble hops to balance. Decent helles

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Airy white head, clear yellow body. Hops and flowers in the aroma. Same in the flavor, quite fresh and rather tasty but not the most interesting.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Yellow, thin head...not very carbonated...not very flavorful either...crisp and refreshing with a little hoppy finish...

Beyer (13) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Had out of a 5 liter "mini Keg" and was so good that I couldn’t stop coming back for more (eh not so good the next morning though). Well balanced Hells, perfect color and great creamy head.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 This one pours a light gold with a diminishing white head and very light carbonation. The nose is malty and slightly sweet. There’s a lingering malty sweetness that becomes a dryness on the tongue with a light hop bitterness. This is clean but also heavy.

I asked some regulars what was the wimpiest beer at Rich O’s and was told it was Spaten Lager. I had one of these to field-test it for my sister and it was indeed wimpy. I wish I could think of a better descriptor.

Sigue la ley de pureza alemana. Fuerte. Sabor a Malta y bastante aroma. No muy Carbonatada, con espuma normal.
