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’.

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.

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
