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.

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

vipinvelp (2542) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2015
Clear golden yellow, short lasting white foam head. Typical taste for a German beer. OK, not outstanding. (Velp 201503)

kajser27 (108) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 12, 2015
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.

Padchenko (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 7, 2015
500ml bottle, 5.2%. Pours clear golden with a white head that doesn’t last. Refreshing barley malt flavoured beer. Half decent but nothing original about it. Fairly average lager

flying_pig (1059) - SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2015
500ml Bottle from Reilly’s (Lisnaskea - £1.79):
Quite a nice lager without really doing much to stand out from the crowd, being from Germany is almost enough to elevate it above most lagers you’re likely to try in the UK but it is by no means a classic. It had enough going for it to keep you interested and the crisp finish was particularly pleasing but it’s not a beer I’d go out of my way to track down again.

thomat (2235) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow with a medium white foam. Maly and grassy tones. Malt, grass, hops and vegetables. Medium body with a balanced finish.

bnwokedi89 (85) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Decently balanced beer. Golden yellow color with a smooth finish. Worth a taste if you are interested in trying a new German beer but nothing significant to brag about with this offering.

Baalzevuv (59) - Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2015
Wygląd pełny, klarowny, barwa złota, piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, nietrwała. W zapachu trochę drożdży, trochę chmielu, mało wyrazisty. W smaku lekko ziołowy, całkiem niezła goryczka, nie zalega, na języku szerokie. Po kilku chwilach aromat się ulotnił.
