Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2004
This pours a nice golden color with a sizeable white head and good carbonation. The aroma is mild, mainly of sweet malts. The flavor is a good crisp malt with a hit of the hop bitterness in the finish. S’okay.

jgb9348 (5927) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Light golden coloured body with a frothy white head. Aroma of pale malt and little else. Light to Medium-bodied; Small fragrant hop character in the taste with more of an emphasis on good quality malt. Aftertaste shows some distinct malt character with a bubbly feeling throughout. Overall, a nice beer to try (although it is very common) and worth drinking. I sampled this beer on draught as ’Spaten Munchner Hell’ on draught on 07-June-2004 in Sydney, Australia at the Lowenbrau restaurant on ’The Rocks’.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Yellow color with a small white head. Mild pale aroma. Taste was thin and reminiscent of American pale lagers. Thin watery body. Very disappointing when compared to Spaten Optimator.

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2004
As Spaten Bière Blonde Premium, French packaging. Light malts, some sweetness, with decent hop profile. Clean and crisp aroma. Pale blond clear, effervescence, with foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts rather bland, with mild malts and grain. Low acidity. Hops bitterness comes in at the finish, with decent bitter dry after. A decent lager.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2004
Clear pale golden body with a white fully lasting head. Aroma is of soft hops and grainy malt. Taste is fairly light and easy to drink, malt with a mild hop bitterness.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2004
Clear pale gold. Soft white head. Sweet, bready, biscuity, moderately hoppy aroma. Light feel. Clean, crisp flavour w/ good balance.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2004
This made a fellow student teacher throw up 6 hrs later after feeling fine, but I do not know how that happened. Not a bad beer at all, but nothing special either.

Sweet hoppy aroma, light yellow, small white head. Mild hops with a tiny malt backing. Light bodied, fair.

Not a bad beer. Light golden color and a so-so balance of flavor with a hint of sweetness. The head dissolves quickly. Nothing special.
