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.

thirstyrabbit (1412) - Tallinn, - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle as "Spaten München". Light golden body with a minimal white head. Aroma has cookie dough, light honey and yeast. But it’s all muted. Taste has similar flavours but again, it’s all very modest. Light earthy hops in the finish. Average German macro Helles - slightly better than pale lagers but that’s it.

(Flasche) Es hat eine zitronengelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist etwas spelzig mit einem fruchtigen Hopfenaroma. Der Geschmack ist getreidig, Pappe und Marzipan. Bittere gibt es kaum

jamaty (1160) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Color pajizo muy pálido. Un par de dedos de espuma si llega, poco duradera. Aroma muy limpio, como el aspecto. Sabor a malta de gran calidad, con cierto dulzón y algo de limón. Al final punto de sequedad final muy controlado para un conjunto muy agradable y sobre todo, extraordinariamente bebible.

DeanF (1808) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle found in La Paz, Bolivia. Okay white head and yellow body. Aroma of corn and hay. Flavour is citrusy hay with a medium finish. Just okay, I would hope for better from a German brew.

allmyvinyl (6061) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 4, 2015
500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear gold with a thin, short-lived white head. Aromas of grass and lemon, light pale malt. Taste is light malt, bready too. Light sweet finish.

Gezapft getrunken. Extrem langweiliges Bier. Schmeckt nach Wasser mit klein wenig Hopfenbittere. Mehr kann man dazu absolut nicht schreiben.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours light gold, thin dissipating head. Bready, faintly sweet flavour. Quite nice

TedE (453) - 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.

A typical example of Munich brew. Thin non saying, below average beer just come from here...
