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.

ARH (1122) - 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.

Color amarillo orina, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (poca retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa. Aroma a cereal. Sabor a cereal, dulce, con ligerísimo amargo final. Plana y olvidable.

17Beer (286) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Aromas of yeast, malt and light hops. Pours clear gold with a white fast dissipating head. Light lacing. Balanced light lager flavors quite malty with yeast overtones. Medium carbonation. Nice crisp lingering finish. A good choice if you’re looking for lager.

Fresh & smooth lager that I enjoyed from a green bottle. Reminiscent of most of the German & Dutch lagers with the prominent taste being the German pilsner malt.

Clean, crisp and very refreshing. However, it tasted a little undercooked or raw in ways that was a little bit off-putting.

jjsint (2692) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2016
On tap at the Golden Hind, Cambridge. Light gold, with lots of visible carbonation. Sticky grainy malt aroma with some doughy biscuit notes and a hint of citrus. Sweet malty taste with envelope glue, soft orchard fruit, honey. Sweetness lasts throughout the aftertaste without that unwelcome acidity so common in big-name lagers. This is a decent Helles, one that grew on me over the course of the drink.
