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 (1113) - 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.

thellgren (784) - 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.

By whatever nonenclature this bier is marketed as, it’s a pretty easy one to enjoy, as far as my taste buds go, anyway. Solid and unadorned and enjoyable.

Nurmis (341) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours clear and golden. Quite weak aroma of grains and grassy hops. Medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness. Nothing special but not the weakest either.

elosop (288) - SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2016
Mycket ljusgul med ytterst lite skum. Svag doft av malt. Smaken lätt besk och tunn. Eftersmaken ganska kort. Tämligen mjukt kolsyrad. Lättdrucken.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Crystal clear pale yellow with a 3-finger an off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of grain, grass, mild floral notes and a little lemon. Taste of grain, mild citrus and a touch of grass. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
