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.

TedE (640) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2015
500ml on tap at Bavarian Beer cafe, Moore Park (before Roosters game). Sweet malt nose. Pale yellow beer with small diminishing white head. Spritzy mineral water feel. A little bitter at first then malt takes over. Finish is a little too sweet but it’s over quickly. Designed to be consumed quickly and often.

El carbónico fluye constante, cubriendo todos los espacios del vaso, que se llena de un amarillo cálido, transparente y ligero. Aroma fuerte, un poco asomagado, contenido, como si el contacto con el aire no le hiciera muy bien para expresarse, pero que aún así le otorga una leve percepción de madera. Quizás eso explique esa sensación que queda en la nariz. Ligera y de poco carácter en boca, no se muestra en sabor y queda un tanto insípida, como si algo le faltara para demostrar su personalidad. Pasa como una industrial más, aunque se nota que su factura es de mejor calidad. Ligera y suave, la Spaten es de esas cervezas para beber tranquilamente, disfrutándola sabiendo que no puede ofrecer algo más que el buen gusto para calmar la sed.

Malty, with a very short bitter bite on your tongue in the middle. Eases into a taste of hay and hops, but it’s somehow just really brief. Like you might want to taste more of it but then it’s already gone. Still, a fairly enjoyable lager, for sure.

Pours light yellow with skimpy white head. Strong grassy aroma with notes of DMS. Taste is bland with dry aftertaste, minimally bitter. Light mouthfeel with ample carbonation. Overall tastes like cheap beer fit for resuscitation of the masses. Goes down easily and best consumed cold, which isn't a compliment. Won't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden yellow, short lasting white foam head. Typical taste for a German beer. OK, not outstanding. (Velp 201503)

Light gold, white head. Malt aroma, grains, hay. Taste again sweetish Munich malt, grainy, grass and hay. Low amount of bitterness. Light to medium body. Nothing spectacular but very nicely done and hits the spot every time. My go-to Helles.
