COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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 (400) - 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.

HippyHop (105) - CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
This looks, smells and tastes like beer. Really not much more to say here. Typical lager all around. Grain and slightly spicy dryness. Not enough of the latter to be crisp or refreshing. Blah but not terrible.

sseb69 (1488) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
Cannette 500 ml. 5.2%. Couleur jaune or, mousse blanche.Arôme de grains et un peu de houblon. En bouche, douce et croustillante. Notes de pain, un peu d’herbe et céréales. Finale sans histoire. Bonne bière de soif quand il faut chaud.

olsvammel (3063) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Light bready malty smell. Clean smell. The taste is similar but a bit more artificial. Better then your average industrial lager.

zvsn (593) - ISRAEL - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Clear straw golden with a decent creamy head. Aroma - pale malt, yeast and some herbal notes. Sweetish with grains, malty and grassy hops flavors, low bitterness. A bit too fizzy and not crispy enough. So-so.

Vestlake (144) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 6, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 Clear straw yellow color with very little head. Aroma is grains and malt. Taste is same as aroma. Very nice lager taste. The taste is a little on the light side, I wish the taste jumped out more.

Tämä pitää hotalehtaa. Suureen janoon ja pieneen nautintoon. Tätä ei maistella vaan juodaan.
