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.

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, - APR 24, 2007
Rated 2004-05-09. Golden, medium white head which lowers slowly, tiny lace. Fruity, slightly flowery and sweet aroma. Light to medium bodied. Flowery, malty, hoppy and grassy flavor. Dry, medium length finish. Nothing special in this lager.

Decent German beer, with not much to be remembered. Easy to drink anyway. Could have had a bit more hops.

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2014
On tap at ACOM Hotel, Haar. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of strong lager, corn, sweet stuff, light malty, some bread. Flavour is quite sweet, corn, rice, light malty, honey, only ever so slightly bitter finish. Light-bodied. Not very good, lacks a whole lot of hop-bite.

ARH (152) - 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.

Bright clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth with fine minerally carbonation. Smooth malt, touch of cream and a little slightly war wheaty malt. Very light orange citrus, whisper of honey. Smooth and semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable.

angel77 (511) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 6, 2014
Caña en cr 05-03-2014. En el momento. Muy ligera con sabores de cereales bastante presentes y ligeros toques cítricos. Bastante gas. Cuerpo ligero medio con espuma blanca poco persistente. Color rubio transparente con alguna que otra columna de finas burbujas. Bastante fácil de beber y refrescante y sin muchos mas alicientes. Hay que tomar la botella.

This is a darn good beer. When going to a German restaurant order the Spaten and you won’t be disappointed.

Leighton (9830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Draft at Spatenhaus an der Oper - Munich. Pours perfectly clear gold with a creamy white head. Cereal and biscuits in the aroma. Light sweet flavor, simple, with more cereal and biscuits, faint hay bitterness, light floral notes. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with more cereal. Basic but supremely drinkable.
