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.

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

pils70 (124) - - FEB 21, 2016
Classica lager tedesca industriale. Sentori erbacei e di cereali, con finale leggermente secco. Dissetante, ma niente di più.

DBob5150 (235) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Classic yellow body with a a nice white head and good lacing. Aroma is grains, grass and a little skunky. Taste is smooth classic Euro-lager. Clean finish, enjoyable.

Garlic_of_Doom (619) - SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Light yellow with a big, frothy white head. Aroma is grassy, slightly herbal hoppy, some cereal/light malt. Taste is mostly sweet with cereals/cornflakes and some hop bitterness. Medium body, high, prickly carbonation, dry mouth feel. Short sweet and herbal bitter after taste.

I recall this beeing a better beer. Seems more bland than before. Too sweet IMO.

Hm. I used to like this a lot more. Aromas and palate now seem bland, simple, one-dimensional. Dare I say almost "Americanized." Dumbed down for mass appeal. The kind of a beer I can’t wait to finish so I can move on to something else. Disappointing.

Excalibur123 (342) - Soria, SPAIN - JAN 18, 2016
Color amarillo oro con media corona de espuma blanca de burbuja grande y ligera retención, aromas a malta, débil lúpulo , pan y ligero diacetilo; en boca entrada suave y refrescante con sutil amargor, balanceada hacia la malta, cuerpo y carbónico medio-ligero, retrogusto maltoso y ligeramente dulce, fácil de beber pero sin nada destacable.

Pours a light and clear straw with a white fluffy head. Aroma of sweet malt. Bitter taste, mildly refreshing.
