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.

WillemsUrenkel (1790) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2017
And another Helles ... 0,5 l bottle. Claer golden witha one finger white head in the glass. Smells low grainy. Taste is mid grainy low but present bitterness. Nothing really wrong but boring to be honest.

Turtles (2520) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2017
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear pale golden, lasting frothy white head, good lacing. Bread aroma with sweet malts and grains, hints of citrus. Smooth and clean feel, medium carbonation. Bread dough taste, buns, grains and grass. Mild bitter finish.

bonev (696) - POLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Piwo klarowne w kolorze zlotym nalewa sie z dosc obfita biala drobnopecherzykowa piana ktora jednak bardzo szybko znika bez wiekszych sladow. W aromacie ziola i gotowane warzywa i pieczywo tostowe. W smaku polslodkie z wysokim wysyceniem i srednioniska goryczka. Smakuje platkami owsianymi i nic poza tym. Zwykle jasne piwo bez wiekszych wrazen.

Tezminator (204) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2017
Aroma: faint herbs and corn. The taste is similar with some mild citrus and something honey-like. However, nice balance of hops and malt. Mild and interesting yeasty flavour. Very subtle and nice. I am not familiar with the style, but as a random beer from the (Swedish) bottle shop, this is one of the better ones that ticks quite a few boxes.

Goldgelb im Glas mit sehr kurzlebiger Blume. Feinmalziger Antrunk, mild würziger Körper, leichte Hopfennoten im Abgang.

jandd1983 (4210) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2017
On tap. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of malts and some yeast. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, yeast and some hops. Tasty.

Fules (1152) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2017
Kicsi, tartós hab, szőke szín. Gabonás, gyümölcsös illat. Lágeres, kissé száraz, malátás, enyhén fűszeres íz. Könnyed, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés. Nagyipari jellegű helles.

oobawa (1208) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Fairly standard funky Euro-lager, better than its Dutch cousins but still not a great German lager by any means. Nose is all icky Euro-lager skunkiness, green and pungent and off-putting, but the pour’s nice, a mellow, clear gold with a frothy white head and modest lacing. Taste offers up a modest amount of lager goodness, some apple-wheat sweetness mixing with floral hops, but still seems somewhat watered down and weak. Texture’s good, I guess. Eh.

Part of my random picks at LCBO. No expectations, no knowledge. I had a hard time rating it, between 2.6 and 3.4...

harrisoni (18237) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2017
Bottle at Reading BF 2017. Clear gold lasting white head. i can’t believe I’ve never had this. Cereal aroma with some lemon. Clean basic lemon Munich beer. It’s ok but mostly its carbonation lemon cereal and a little empty. Not great clean though.
