COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: Water, Barley Malt, Hops & Hop extract.
Sold as Münchner Hell in Germany, München in the UK and Premium in North America.
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.

gopherfan99 (474) - CROATIA - SEP 29, 2014
Tap (in Garmisch); clear gold pour with a white head; aroma of malt and hops; taste is bittersweet with malt and hops with a hint of citrus, has a light bitter finish; not bad but Spaten has better beers.

Bendrixian (1114) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
Clear light gold pour with lively white head. PIls like aroma and straw/hay with a hint of something doughy. A bit of that sweet dough on the uptake but really this is a quaffer. Not for me.

Ragnampiza (449) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - SEP 27, 2014
500 ml bottle. Golden yellow, perfectly clear, with a small, creamy, not too persistent bright white head Pretty invinting and fresh nose. Bread/pale malts, light vanilla, wet hay, floral and grassy hop notes. Slightly nutty and toasted as well. Sweet and sugary upfront, almost sirupy and honey like, pretty harsh bitterness which doesn’t linger too much. Malty and slightly dusty aftertaste. Light mineral presence as well. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Not bad.

two7offsuit (180) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Pours pale yellow/gold with a thin white head. Aroma hints at malt. Hints of toffee, biscuit malt in the flavor with some creaminess. A light but surprisingly good lager.

HippyHop (136) - 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.
