On-tap at T. Phillips Alehouse in "downtown" Glendora, CA. Served in a 23oz mug.
Appearance: clear yellow color with a lumpy white head that was quite durable thanks to the abundant carbonation. Nice rings of lace clung to the walls of the glass.
Nose: notes of hayfields, dusty grains and biscuity malts. Light aroma of herbal hops.
Taste: good balance here. Solid malt bill that has a biscuity flavor overlays a mild dusty grain tasste. Finishes with a slight herbal and grassy hops bite that's nicely in balance with the malt side of the equation.
Feel: light, crisp, and refreshing.
Overall, I think I just might want to go back for more of this. Spaten Premium Lager has struck a good balance between the malt and hops profiles and is very easy drinking. Worth sending down your soup cooler.
Serving type: on-tap

Had as Spaten Premium Lager, 5.2 % alc.
Pours pale golden, small white head that goes fast to a thin sticky lace.
Tho a strong skunky smell at first, some nice grainy malts break through as it settles, a touch of fruit and some mild stewed hops.
Maltiness dominates the taste, grainy but also with a bit of sweetness, faint apple and lemon zest.
A bit of skunk, not too discomforting, grassy hop finish, a bit spicy, mild bitterness.
Light bodied, medium carbonation.
A decent lager, but doesn't really bring the German quality stamp.
