Bottled-A very light beer that tasted pretty bland to me. The last sip out of any bottle I’ve had always tastes very stale.

On tap- Pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma was sweetly malted. It’s a sweet grainy flavored lager with a little bit of hop. Fairly watery but decent.

Bottled. Pale gold yellow beer with thinnish head. Flatter sweet lager, some hops but a flabby malt. Flavour dissappears on the finish, which is as well I suppose.

Bottle. Sweet, yet strong, hoppy aroma. Thin white head. Pale straw-gold color. Flavor is lightly hoppy, with a strong bitter bite at the end and aftertaste. Carbonation is quite strong.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong, pleasant aroma like club soda with a twist of lime. Tall but brief head but ok lacing. Color is very light and sort of cheap looking, could pass for MGD (and unfortunately has the same gritty aftertaste). Taste might not possess the elements of a great connoiseur brew, but if you’re in the mood for a beer like MGD that packs slightly more of a punch, you should give this a try - if being overpriced is not an issue.

Straw yellow body, medium white head. Weak aroma of some malts. Crisp flavor, but quite thin, weak and watery.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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’.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
