COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. After dinner. Good maltyness, with more bitterness than usual in the style. Nice mouthfilling feel. Easy drinking. A pity its ugly look, with no foam.

Originally rated on 9/4/08. I didnt rate this on higher because i am basing my score on the mini-keg version since i tried that last. I dont think i will ever buy any beer from a mini keg again since every single time there is an overwhelming metallic taste. Other than that Spaten pours a mid to dark yellow body, average carbonation, thin white head, not much lace. Flavor of corn and some malts, kinda sweet for a lager. Overall a fairly average beer.

BreWedge (475) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
500 ml can. Pours a very pale yellow with a large white head. Aromas are light grains and grass. Light grains with a very subtle hop presence. Thin body, watery, little to finish. A mass-produced beer without any character.

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

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 (626) - 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.
