COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a crystal clear golden straw color. I love how translucent the body is, in particular. The head is a two finger white shade; retention isn’t the best, but there’s some really nice lacing left on the glass. S: Aye, it’s a bit skunked (lol, green bottles), but it could have been worse. The notes of pale malts, faint sweetness, and zesty hops aren’t dulled in any significant capacity. T: At first, some of the hop profile comes through with notes of grass and lemon zest, but the finish is pure, balanced, simple malt goodness. In particular, it has a nutty flavor that I really enjoy (that, and the diacetyl is kept in check). Personally, I want more hops; but I won’t complain about the balance this offers. M: Not quite as bone dry as I like my lagers to be - nor is it too sweet. The texture does the best it can to provide good drinkability without significant hoppiness. O: Green bottles mean I wouldn’t buy this one again. However, I would seek it out on tap. An under-appreciated lager unfortunately scorned both by its bottle color and by who makes it.

Nice clean lager. Slight herb aroma, no unappealing aspects. Clean gold straw appearance, clean lager flavor, a slight hint of corn with pleasant finish.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- hellgelbe Farbe mit minimaler Schaumbildung - ganz leichte Aromen nach Gras, Hopfen und Honig - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist mild und malzig betont - der gesamte Körper bleibt im ganzen Trinkverlauf allerdings dünn bis hin zu einer leichten Wässrigkeit - überraschend ist dann allerdings, dass der Mittelteil bis hin zum Abgang dann doch von einer unerwarteten Hopfenbeigabe geprägt ist Fazit: Trinkbares Lager, mehr aber auch nicht

Nick0979 (17) - VIETNAM - AUG 25, 2016
Definitely one of the best beers I have drunk to date. Silky smooth and very easy to consume with a good malt cum wheat element and a slightly bitter and satisfyingly long after taste. Superior to the Oktoberfest offering in my own humble opinion.

thellgren (807) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2016
0.5 l bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Aroma has malts and herbal hops. Appearance is pale and clear like some pale lager. Taste is, however, nothing like pale lager. This is malty and nicely hopped. Better than I expected from such a pale beer. This was excellent after Finnish sauna.

Angenehmer Geruch, goldene Farbe. Schönes Malzaroma, etwas Brot, südlicher Einschlag. Aus der Flasche prickelnder als aus dem Glas. Erfrischend, aber nicht zu wässrig.
