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.

50cl bottle. Nice hay like color and small white head which leaves no lacing. Some bitterness and pretty sweet taste with some sourness. Hay, bread and nice malts and hops. Still, taste is too short and not too balanced.

LLaurin (247) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
A very light and crispy beer from tap at Spaten brau Haus in München. Citric notes very discretely on nose and in taste. Palate classic short. Refreshing beer.

Cokemonkey11 (426) - - JUN 11, 2016
Brown/Tan bottle, 500ml. Pours pale golden yellow with a thin white head subsiding quickly. Scent is light lager and a tiny bit of flowers. Taste is light lager and very plain and watery. Finish is a little dry and otherwise no unsavory properties. Good.

rozsoma (761) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - MAY 31, 2016
Sampled @ Starkbierzeit 2016. My cream jelleg, viszont ami a borsodit dicséri: a licensz alapján elég jól sikerült másolni.

massingasetta (616) - München, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2016
A beer that has an ambiguous side to it. It is a Helle that one can taste out of a group, and while at first I thought this was not so good, having lived in Munich for a long time now, this beer has grown on me. The distinctivness has become positive over the years.

heavy (2569) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 28, 2016
May ’15. A 0.5 l bottle from a supermarket, enjoyed at the wonderful English Garden park in Munich. Another one that was skipped it so many times, I really had to buy it. Grain, raw eggs and hay aroma. Flavor was lightly sweet, very lightly, followed the aroma with a bit of bitterness towards the end. Thinner in body with shorter, lightly herbal bitter and honey/egg sweetish finish. Not so bad as it may sound, just simple and light. Refreshing and by the all means mediocre pale lager.

SarkyNorthener (3894) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle from shop in Cap Salou, Catalonia, Spain. Pale gold beer with large head. Aroma of light malt and a touch of perfume. Taste is light malt, grassy, some herb and bread. Not bad.

josanguapo (942) - SPAIN - APR 20, 2016
From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. After dinner. Good maltyness, with more bitterness than usual in the style. Nice mouthfilling feel. Easy drinking. A pity its ugly look, with no foam.

Originally rated on 9/4/08. I didnt rate this on higher because i am basing my score on the mini-keg version since i tried that last. I dont think i will ever buy any beer from a mini keg again since every single time there is an overwhelming metallic taste. Other than that Spaten pours a mid to dark yellow body, average carbonation, thin white head, not much lace. Flavor of corn and some malts, kinda sweet for a lager. Overall a fairly average beer.
