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.

ARH (619) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma starts out with a prevalent banana and clove note, which fades and is replaced by something more yeast-like, maybe toasted bread too. As the drink settles, a slight mildew and wet leather start to come through. The beer is a clear, pale straw color with a light, bubbly head that reduces to a thin, but present, layer and leaves a light lacing. The taste is a medium high sweetness with a light bitterness. It’s a light bodied beer with a creamy and smooth texture and a light, fuzzy carbonation. The initial flavors that strike the tongue are honey, and caramel, both with a mellow presence. This is accompanied by a light grass note, a mild, sweet lemon, and a very faint spice. The finish is crisp, with a mellow spicy hop bite. The aftertaste is floral, bread, and spice, but it’s a light aftertaste the fades at a moderate pace.

bnwokedi89 (74) - 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 (46) - - 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.

rondphoto (2377) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 12, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear golden amber with a full white head cover, short strips of lace. Aroma of hops and grass. Taste is slightly sweet malt that is countered on the swallow by assertive floral hops. Malt and hops share a medium finish. Clean and refreshing.

budedou (447) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JAN 9, 2015
Pours mostly clear yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma is pale malts, faint toast, faint corn, and faint floral notes. Flavor is dry malts, faint hops, and faint fruit esters; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

wazzawazza (35) - Geraldton, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2015
From the tap at Speiselokal Lens in Munich. Pours with a cola-like transparency and a decent head. Tastes great, all in all a great beer to have at lunch.

Cybercat (3580) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Comes out of the tap clear Amber with a thin ivory head. Crisp, malty aroma is a little fruity. Flavor is a little better, crisp and malty with more apple tone. Mouthfeel is not too fizzy, but fairly firm. OK - have it with a meal.

rami_pl (131) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Ladna piana, czysty profil, brak goryczki, aromaty i smaki slodowe, wrecz miodowe momentami. Nie moja bajka, ale zarazem krzywdy na pewno nikomu to piwo nie zrobilo

BeerInHeaven (181) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2014
pours a clear straw yellow with a quickly dissipating bubbly white head. Aroma is classic Euro lager grass and skunk. Taste is bright and then sweet. Well balanced. Modest hop presence with a pleasant finish. Not a bad beer. Similar to Beck’s or Grolsch.
