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.

This pours a nice golden color with minimal head. The taste is sweet and grainy. Definately has the bitter beer smell and after taste.

erickok (3742) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 15, 2014
Very pale. Moderate aroma, light sweet malts, bit of white bread like. Uninteresting. Taste is better, very smooth and easy drinkable. Not bitter enough for me though. (50cl bottle from V&B Tours)

Sarlacc83 (890) - Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. A: Translucent gold with a big foamy head which settles into a fluff. Picture worthy. N: Corn, grist, earth, sweet biscuit, herbaceousness, T: Sweet, watery, clean. M: Very light, fuzzy carbonation, no alcohol. O: Boring and yet tasty and reminiscent of past days. I love the easy drinking lyfe.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle as premium lager from Jusco on sale at 250 yen (best before 12/2014). Upon opening and serving in a lager glass it pour a very pale gold with a thin soapy white head. Alas it was lightstruck with one of the skunkiest aromas I’ve smelled in awhile(why do they use green bottles?), once you get past that you get a grainy sweet pale malt aroma with possibly a hint of residual hoppiness. On the palate it is light, sharp and crisp with a dry finish. The taste is dusty dry crackers, a bit of sweetness then a bitter skunky finish with somewhat of a sour aftertaste. It’s obviously gone off but I am guessing fresh on a hot day it would be a passable lager(probable 3-3.1).

"not bad...a good food/pizza beer, but nothing so special that it’s a treat on it’s own. clean, crisp, and well balanced...just a hair under where it rate Spaten pils...malty flavor, hop finish. refreshing."

gopherfan99 (559) - CROATIA - SEP 29, 2014
Tap (in Garmisch); clear gold pour with a white head; aroma of malt and hops; taste is bittersweet with malt and hops with a hint of citrus, has a light bitter finish; not bad but Spaten has better beers.

Bendrixian (1160) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
Clear light gold pour with lively white head. PIls like aroma and straw/hay with a hint of something doughy. A bit of that sweet dough on the uptake but really this is a quaffer. Not for me.
