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.

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

Keg - Bavarian Bier Cafe, Manly, Sydney. Poured a clear, bright golden with a lasting one-finger white head. Aromas of lemon, some grain and a gentle toast and biscuit malt character. Very crisp, clean and with refreshing purity. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a fine length of a soft intensity bitterness. Gentle, easy-drinking with fair bittersweet balance.

Mycket god pilsner. Smakar som urtypen av en öl. Härlig skumkrona och vacker färg. Världsklass.
