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 (1117) - 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.

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 (810) - 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.

jenznett (108) - GERMANY - AUG 2, 2016
Angenehmer Geruch, goldene Farbe. Schönes Malzaroma, etwas Brot, südlicher Einschlag. Aus der Flasche prickelnder als aus dem Glas. Erfrischend, aber nicht zu wässrig.
