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.

sm89walt (1758) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2014
Keg - Bavarian Bier Cafe, Manly, Sydney. Poured a clear, bright golden with a lasting one-finger white head. Aromas of lemon, some grain and a gentle toast and biscuit malt character. Very crisp, clean and with refreshing purity. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a fine length of a soft intensity bitterness. Gentle, easy-drinking with fair bittersweet balance.

generallee08 (712) - New York, USA - JUN 22, 2014
It has a light golden colored body with very good clarity and some visible streams of carbonation. The head on top is light and foamy, bright white in color and fades out quickly. The aroma is very light with just a hint of pale malt and grassy/floral hop notes. The flavor is simple crisp and refreshing with a light to medium body. There is a thin biscuity malt balanced by floral and somewhat grassy hops that bring mild but balanced bitterness. The finish is quick and fairly dry with active cleansing carbonation.
